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

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?

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy is a 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.

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.
