Blyth Academy’s Response to COVID-19

Blyth Academy’s priority is to get students back to our campuses, however, 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.
As September’s scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.

BLYTH ACADEMY ORBIT – VIRTUAL CAMPUS:
OPENING SEPTEMBER 2020

Blyth Academy is excited to introduce Blyth Academy Orbit, a fully virtual high school campus. With the same academic principles as our physical schools, the campus offers small class sizes, rigorous academics, and live teacher-led classes held during regular school hours — all from the comfort of your home. This virtual platform opens up our academic structure to students all over the world, without having to compromise the classroom experience and structured learning provided in a traditional high school day.

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.

Blyth Academy Online

Over 160 Ontario high school courses are available through Blyth Academy Online’s easy-to-use platform. Ministry inspected and nationally recognized, Blyth Academy Online’s instructor-supported courses are modular, extremely flexible and can be completed in as little as three weeks. Repeat and reach-ahead courses are available for students whose studies have been disrupted, or who want to better prepare for next year. Enrol at any time and receive immediate access to your course and textbook.

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.
