In a few short weeks, I will be taking the next step in my studies and starting University at Georgetown College in Washington. I know that I am well prepared for University because of Blyth Academy Online. I received more than a diploma from Blyth Academy. I learned how to think, how to process information, time management, how to write in APA and MLA format. The academics at Blyth Academy were not only interesting and enjoyable but challenging and thought-provoking. Because of Blyth Academy, I am an Independent and confident learner. I received more than a diploma from Blyth, I now have learning skills and a quality education. Thank you to all my teachers, to Guidance and to all the staff for supporting me through my studies and making me the best that I can be. Thank you, to Mr. Bishop and Mr. Ibrahim. I will cherish my memories of Blyth Academy and all the wonderful teachers forever. They made me a better me, and a better student.

Our Teachers

Our online private high school courses are developed and taught by Blyth Academy teachers trained in the effective delivery of an exemplary online learning experience. Teachers use live chat, weekly office hours, email, and interactive multimedia for the duration of the course to monitor progress and maintain a close relationship with the student and parents.

Repeat Courses

Students who have completed and passed a course in the last 12 months may retake the course in order to gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Normally, this can be done in significantly less time than the 110 hours that is required for a new credit and will help the student reach their goals both in school and for post-secondary school entry.


Where applicable, students will sit a final examination in a proctored environment to maintain an academically rigorous and legitimate result. Students may choose to write their examination online via Examity, or at a Blyth Academy campus convenient to their home or school. Proctoring at a Blyth Academy location is available at no cost to the student.

Credits and Reporting

Blyth Academy Online is Ministry of Education inspected and adheres to all provincial standards, including the provision of an Ontario Provincial Report Card and official transcripts to post-secondary institutions. At the conclusion of the course a report card will be mailed home and forwarded directly to the student’s school which will then be entered on the student’s OSR. Blyth Academy Online private high school credits are recognized by all Ontario high schools and post-secondary institutions.

Full-Time, Part Time, Homeschooled, Exceptional Learners & IEP’s

Students may decide to take all of their courses at Blyth Academy, at which point we will become your home school. Many students will remain at their local school and take just one or two courses that may not be available in their school. Blyth Academy also accommodates students with exceptional needs who may or may not have an IEP. Our highly individuated approach to online learning has proved very effective in helping these students.

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.
