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!

“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.”

Ready to experience the Blyth Academy difference?

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy will be 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.

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.
