What our Families are Saying…

“I am so very pleased with what Blyth Academy has done being a part of my son’s preparation for University and life. This past weekend was Thanksgiving and my son came home from university. I have always appreciated the role Blyth played in my son’s life but it was so awesome to hear what he was saying about the school and how he was prepared and is doing well. His statement to me was that he missed his school but that the new challenges ahead do not seem so daunting because of what he learned and received from his Blyth experience.”

Robert Radford

Parent

“The 10-week semesters focused on two courses instead of four were an immense help for our daughter. The classes were more intense, and without the need to spread time between so many subjects and the deadlines accordingly helped her progress. Our daughter is now willing to take responsibility for herself, her choices, her actions, and the path towards her future. We are thankful for the time that was invested in our daughter over the past two years of transition for her.”

Michael & Sheri

Parents

“Grade 12 at Blyth Academy was the best year of Dakota’s educational career. Your school made Dakota’s final year of high school not only a happy and joyful learning experience, but her confidence and belief in her own potential were greatly enhanced. I cannot thank you enough for developing and running such an important school.”

Ready to experience the Blyth Academy difference?

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy is 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. Live virtual classes, office hours, guidance support and even extracurricular activities will continue through virtual tools. In these uncertain times, we believe that our students benefit greatly from the structure, social interaction and support their school provides them.

Our plans include continuing term three virtually, along with all of the usual processes for student report cards and information sharing with post-secondary institutions delivered on schedule. Planning for term four is underway with Principals and guidance staff working on finalizing courses and students’ schedules.

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.
