THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Interdisciplinary Studies

CREDIT CROSSOVER: Although Interdisciplinary Studies courses focus on different subject matter, the IDC4U course code can only count as one credit on a student’s transcript, even if multiple courses are taken. For example, a student that has completed IDC4U – Artificial Intelligence and IDC4U – The Elite Athlete will only earn one credit in total on their final transcript. Each course (along with the final grade) will show, however, a credit value of zero will be applied to the second IDC4U course. This also applies to students using IDC4U as one of their top six marks when applying to university; one only course may be used as an achieved credit out of the six.

IDC4U Passion Projects allows students to examine and develop skills that transfer to multiple subject areas and develop critical thinking skills. This course is completely student-driven, allowing them to tailor it to their specific learning goals and passions. Students have the freedom to focus on a particular interest using the vast library of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) that exist through a number of reputable institutions. Students will work with their selected MOOC as well as Blyth Academy Online to earn a high school credit (IDC4U – Interdisciplinary Studies). Students will meet the expectations of the Interdisciplinary Studies curriculum while simultaneously learning about a topic of personal interest, whether it be Financial Markets (offered by Yale University) or Machine Learning (offered by Stanford University).

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy will be a remote organization in hopes of doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We will be receiving all emails, phone calls, and voicemails and are dedicated to maintaining business as usual. Thank you for your continued support!

Though our doors are temporarily closed, the minds of our students will remain open. Our students will continue their academic journey through virtual classrooms, to ensure our students don’t miss out on valuable curriculum hours. Our small class sizes and individualized approach will continue in a virtual model, as will the structure that students need to be engaged and successful during the closure.

Blyth Academy is committed to providing students with personalized instruction and support, focusing on critical and creative thinking skills, and nurturing curiosity, innovation and student leadership. We are also committed to providing ongoing communication between the school and families.
