I am pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Armine Movsisyan to the Vidya team as the School Director. She will be the educational leader of the school,
responsible for all academic operations and performance. Given our unique approach to education of the whole individual, it is crucial for us to articulate the experiences learners will have and what the program will look like as we bring the school mission and vision to life. The School Director plays a critical role in designing this journey.
As a life-long learner and seasoned educator, Dr. Movsisyan has the right experience and know-how that is crucial for building a student-centered school. Her life’s purpose is to transform education such that it serves the best interest of the learner by creating environments in which they can flourish, discover their passions and bring their visions to life. Thereby, preparing students for their future, not our past. She considers student voice, family and stakeholder partnership, and community engagement the essential pillars of achieving our overarching mission and vision.
Dr. Movsisyan has earned her Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern California and received leadership training from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education and UCLA – UC Berkeley. Prior to her doctorate, she earned both her Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Master of Arts (MA) degrees in History & Global Cultures from the University of California, Irvine.
After spending the last two decades in a variety of roles in both the independent and public school settings and expanding her understanding of the realm of education on a global scale, she was in search of a home to contribute her experiences to transform education… and so she found her new home at Vidya CHS.
