What our Families are Saying…

If you’re looking for a student-athlete program, you should check out Blyth Academy in Burlington. They have an excellent academic program with small classes to engage students, and their hockey program is continually improving. [The Athletic Director] has obviously put a lot of thought and expertise into designing an on-ice program to personally challenge each athlete every single day with different themes and knowledgeable instructors. This is not a gym class on the ice with the run of the mill drills, but rather a structured program to teach kids the various components of the game and the discipline and perseverance needed to improve. I have noticed the passion and love of the game [amongst] staff and how their passion translates into energetic and well-prepared practices that keeps my kid challenged and inspired. Their partners at Twist complement the on-ice practices as they do a fantastic job with the off-ice sports conditioning that is well planned and goal oriented.”

“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.”

“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?

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.
