My name is Vadim Korolitsky, and Rutherford Private School changed my life.
7 years ago, I was attending a public high school in Vaughan and was having slight difficulty with my mathematics classes. My parents quickly found a tutoring facility not too far away which happened to be Rutherford Private School, (at that time it was still under its previous name, “Eligor”). I took my math tutoring lessons and ended the year with successful grades in my grade 10 mathematics classes. That summer, my parents got a phone call from Dr. Igor, (owner of the school), suggesting I join several young campers on a Super Summer Adventure for one week. During that week I fell in love with “Eligor”.
It was the schools philosophy and overwhelmingly friendly and accepting atmosphere. Every day I went to the camp, I felt like I was obtaining a new family. A few short weeks later, I began begging my parents to attend the school for the school year. Shortly after, they agreed.
2 years later I graduated from the high school, and throughout my first years at the school, I watched it grow, move into better and better facilities, gain an elementary school, kindergarten, daycare, more staff, and of course the number of students multiplied at a very high rate.
When I graduated from the school, I didn’t want to separate myself from this great community that essentially changed my life, rather I wanted to combine it with all the other things I was doing.
Being a drummer for most of my life, I began running several drum workshops at the school for the after school program, starting producing their assemblies and plays, and eventually I worked up my way to become an essential part of the team of staff at Rutherford School.
I am proud to say that since 7 years ago when I first met Dr. Igor and joined the Rutherford School community, I have accomplished more than I ever imagined due to the inspiration and drive which was given to me in this magical place. I have attended both York University for anthropology studies as well as George Brown College for business studies. I have also established a successful drum teaching and live event production business which I got the idea from while running simple workshops at the school.
I am also excited that I am now the director of Rutherford Super Summer Camp, based out of Rutherford Private School.
This is my success story.
Yours is waiting for you at Rutherford Private School!
