Post-Graduate Program | Blyth Academy Burlington

Many recent high-school graduates are not prepared for the rigours of university. Surveys and studies show alarming drop-out and failure rates from Canadian institutions — particularly amongst 17- and 18-year-olds. Many students would benefit from completing their high school education in five years rather than four. Blyth Academy Burlington’s Post-Graduate program build in that extra year to help develop students’ academic and social maturity, giving them a better chance to access and succeed at the best universities.

Our Post-Graduate Program

At Blyth Academy Burlington, we believe students can mature socially and stay engaged academically whether by participating in a co-op placement, taking new and additional Grade 12 credits while combining these with one or two of a variety of programs that we offer. Each program will be custom designed to suit the needs of the student from a menu of options.

At Blyth Academy Burlington, students will be taught essential skills in our Post-Graduate Foundations program. These skills include developing opinions, interpreting information, independent learning, and active participation in our small-group setting and more!

Cooperative Education is the fastest growing area of Secondary School Education. Our Co-op program is also growing, and we hope to build up partnerships with various institutions, but in the meantime students are more than welcome to find their own placements with the help our staff.
