Blyth Academy’s Response to COVID-19

Measures put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have caused unprecedented disruptions to teaching and learning across Ontario. Blyth Academy has a robust plan in place to ensure that our curriculum continues to be delivered in an engaging and meaningful way. We have also taken measures to support private and public schools across the Province, including providing over 200 schools with Blyth Academy Online e-learning resources at no cost. As always, our team stands ready to assist parents and students in finding individualized solutions for academic challenges faced during this difficult time.

Blyth Academy Virtual Classrooms

All Blyth Academy schools are operating real-time online, interactive classes until campus facilities reopen. Our small-class sizes and individualized approach to teaching and learning are now being accomplished using virtual classrooms. Days are structured similar to our regular schedule; beyond leading virtual classes, our teachers are setting daily goals with their students and hosting office hours; attendance and student progress are recorded and made visible to parents through our Edsby platform. Applications are open for the 2020-2021 academic year beginning in September.

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.

Study Full-Time At Blyth Academy

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Full-time, Night School and Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction. We have been heartened by the resilience of our community of students, teachers and families through these challenging times, and the spirit with which our community has pressed forward with coursework, office hours, extracurricular activities, guidance consultations and community initiatives. 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.

Going forward, we are staying agile in our responsiveness to developments with COVID-19, always with the health and safety of our community top of mind. We are conducting ongoing planning to confront scenarios as they develop, with an array of options combining virtual classrooms, distancing measures at the schools, and scheduling modifications; all combined with the innovative teaching practices our faculty are developing through collaborative exchanges within and between our campuses. We will have several phases of return to, and if necessary retreat from, the bricks and mortar classrooms at the ready. We will continue consultations with our community and provincial health and education authorities to determine best options as the COVID situation progresses on its non-linear path.
