Message From Our Principal

Welcome to Blyth Academy Downsview Park School for Elite Athletes! We focus on assisting our student-athletes in their academic, athletic and character development, creating a safe, respectful and exciting learning environment for all. With many notable Jr. A, OHL, NCAA, NHL and MLS alumni, our programs are proven to ensure success.

I am a firm believer in a whole school approach and one of our major focuses is to ensure ongoing communication between school and home. As such, we are able to better enhance your child’s educational and athletic experiences. We offer a wide range of extracurricular opportunities, leadership opportunities and clubs that vary each year depending on the interests of our students to engage your children in the student life of the school.

We encourage you to schedule a school tour to see our classrooms and meet our teachers, and we invite your child to spend a day with us to experience a “Day in the Life” of a Blyth student. We are excited to work with your child and show you all of the amazing aspects of our school!

What our Families are Saying…

“We are very pleased with the engaging academic program that our son is receiving. The approach fosters creative and innovative thinking as well as a genuine learning experience. The bar is set high for excellence! Coupled with this are many opportunities for student-athletes to engage in sports-specific and fitness training throughout their regular school day, making this an ideal choice! We sincerely thank all the staff for an amazing start up this year! “

Aneta and Igor F.


“Blyth Academy offers an excellent sports program delivered by experienced and knowledgeable coaches as well as an outstanding academic program. My son particularly enjoys the 4 terms school year. He is able to focus and concentrate on two subjects at a time. As a busy athlete, it allows him to achieve better results at school and his sports discipline.”

Martine C.


“Blyth Academy Downsview Park has offered our son the perfect combination of high expectations, engagement and personalized support. The teachers provide a rigorous program with the expectation that students will thrive. The focus on athletics and healthy living engages our son in his school and his learning.”

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.
