BLYTH ACADEMY YORKVILLE

The Kids Post - - Registry of Educators - ADAM de PENCIER PRIN­CI­PAL

Adam de Pencier is the Prin­ci­pal of Blyth Academy Yorkville - a bustling hub of a cam­pus just off Yonge and Bloor. “Our lo­ca­tion makes us one of the most di­verse schools in the city, and that in­cludes ac­cess to ev­ery­thing the city has to of­fer. Stu­dents can do co-op place­ments and cour­ses at the AGO, ROM, and Gar­diner Mu­seum, just to name a few.” A long time prin­ci­pal at four other schools, de Pencier also honed his teach­ing and se­nior ad­min­is­tra­tive ex­pe­ri­ences at in­sti­tu­tions like UCC, Brank­some Hall, and Trin­ity.

“The se­cret sauce at Blyth Academy is the right mix of mo­ti­vated stu­dents, mar­vel­lous teach­ers and hand­son learn­ing in a small class set­ting,” says de Pencier. He is also pas­sion­ate about teacher sup­port and de­vel­op­ment and most re­cently stud­ied at Har­vard’s Prin­ci­pals’ Cen­tre. Prior to that, de Pencier also stud­ied at the uni­ver­si­ties of Chicago and Ed­in­burgh and Columbia and Queen’s uni­ver­si­ties.

“We’ve even put in a rooftop class­room,” de Pencier en­thuses about his school, “which makes us the only school in city to have a 360 de­gree view of down­town Toronto. Pretty neat, eh?”
