STUDY AT BLYTH ACADEMY

It’s not enough to “make-do” with education in the age of COVID-19. We need to ensure our children are not only safe but prepared for what comes next and ready to succeed in an unknown future. Our small class sizes, individualized learning, and student support ensure that each and every learner is prepared for the opportunities coming their way.

 

At Blyth Academy, each of our eleven campuses is a thriving school community. Our average class size of fewer than 10 students, passionate and engaging teachers, and personalized approach inspire students and get them excited about their education. Our schools are a place where students are safe, seen, and celebrated for who they are and what they contribute.

 

Applications for the 2021-2022 academic year are now open for students Grades 4 to 12.

Shaping the World

Blyth Academy is a private high school in Ontario with ten campuses. Each school is designed to be a community of 100-200 students and has truly small class sizes. Blyth Academy offers a comprehensive full-time program, as well as night school, private courses, summer school, and online classes.

Our primary focus is to enhance academic achievement to prepare all students for post secondary and beyond. Ninety per cent of our students receive first-choice university acceptance. In addition, the majority of our students demonstrate an improvement in their attitude towards learning and their marks have reflected this academic growth. Credits earned at Blyth Academy are universally accepted and highly respected, and our students have gone on to attend top universities, both domestic and abroad.

Here at Blyth Academy, we tailor the curriculum to the individual student, not the other way around. By taking into account each student’s learning style and extra-curricular responsibilities, we are able to customize a plan unique to the individual.

Finding an academic home in the online world

In almost every way, speaking with her is like speaking to any student at any private school in Canada. The only difference is there isn’t a physical school, and she’s never sat in the same room as her teachers and her classmates. Lauren is enrolled at Blyth Academy Orbit

Extracurricular Activities: Why They Are So Important

The inclusion of extracurricular activities as part of school programming for students has always been important, but I would argue that it has never been more important.  Research shows the positive effects of extracurricular participation

Making Connections Through Experiential Learning

Blyth Academy is known for many excellent educational initiatives—small class sizes, creative school buildings, academic programs curated for elementary, middle and high school, and one-on-one individualized learning.

Study Full-Time At Blyth Academy

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction.  The Blyth Academy model of small class sizes, flexible scheduling and individualized approach have enabled us to remain faithful to our standards. Our commitment to ongoing and meaningful communication between school, teachers, students and families has been critical to this effort.

Although our students have transitioned into summer mode and COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen, we are looking ahead to what September will hold for our campuses and families.
We want to be clear - our preference and our priority is to get students back to our campuses, but we must ensure this is done in a safe and effective way. While we await official guidance from Public Health and the Ministry of Education, a "return to school" task force has been hard at work putting concrete operational plans in place for all likely scenarios. This includes a full return to campus with safeguards, a blended model of virtual and in-campus learning and the continuation of fully virtual classrooms. All scenarios will provide robust learning and live, daily instruction and interaction with teachers and peers. 
With ten campuses across Ontario, we realize that each one of our schools is a unique space and community. We will be implementing across-the-board policies on hand washing, facility cleaning and social distancing measures. Each school is also prepared to pivot individually based on the guidance of local health authorities and to best serve students and families. 
Our recent survey showed that over 80 per cent of Blyth Academy families are eager to return to campuses, and we are hard at work to prepare for this day. As September's scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.
