Helping You Achieve Success

About Our Campus

Blyth Academy@CIHA provides day and boarding students from grades 8-12 with an outstanding educational environment. Our flexibility in scheduling and course delivery allows all our students to pursue their specialized interests and training schedules.

We expect that all students in the CIH Academy hockey program are committed and dedicated to achieving excellence, both academically and athletically. Our ultimate goal: to have athletes graduate from our program, go on to attend college or university and continue their hockey careers. Comparable to many top universities, our program includes 60 minutes of both on-ice training and hockey-specific strength and conditioning four-five days a week—for a full nine months.

A Letter From Your Principal

I have been principal of Blyth Academy @CIHA now for 5 years and, if limited to just one word, I would describe our school as “personal”. It’s what makes us special; we foster an environment in which every student is known and becomes part of that family.

What Makes Our Campus Unique?

Located at the doorstep of Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, and Quebec’s largest city, Montreal, student-athletes of CIH Academy have many opportunities to experience the region’s rich culture and history. Throughout the year, we plan a wide range of interesting field trips and excursions to visit and discover some of the most sought-after attractions of the vibrant and scenic national capital region.

Message From Our Principal

Welcome to Blyth Academy@CIHA, located on a large beautiful campus along the Ottawa River. With state-of-the-art hockey facilities, top-level coaching, and a world-class educational offering, we are custom built for hockey players wishing to excel. If you are not already familiar with us, I invite you to come visit and see, firsthand, the amazing opportunities we have to offer student-athletes.

As Principal, I am personally committed to ensuring our students build a strong foundation in their academic and life skills, before embarking on post-secondary education and beyond. Together, with my remarkable faculty, we maintain close and consistent communication with the students, families, and coaches to ensure a comprehensive approach to overall student success.

Susan Kelly - Principal, Blyth Academy @ CIHA


What our Families are Saying…

“Having tried both private and public schools for the duration of my two children’s education, by far private education offers the student more choice, more guidance and more stability in the programming. Blyth is an example of this type of exceptional learning environment. Blyth offers very convenient and flexible scheduling for the high school student and makes use of this time to help the students transition into the university/college type of independent learning.”


“Blyth Academy teachers and administration are highly respectful of the student’s academic and personal needs. This is apparent right from the beginning and lasts until after graduation. With this kind of atmosphere, students respond positively and it is natural that they are motivated to do their very best.”


“Our son has returned to us with a mature outlook on life and his future. We always knew he would grow while away but we didn’t expect to have a young man returned to us! We thank you all for that.”

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.
