About Our Campus

Blyth Academy Lawrence Park is an affordable private high school that has been wonderfully embraced by its families and neighbours since opening in 2010. Active in and outside of class, Blyth Academy Lawrence Park hosts several signature events including a city-wide Triathlon, a very popular Music, Art and Drama night, and works closely with nearby partners including Anytime Fitness, the Freehand School of Art, The Teddington Retirement Residence, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program and more. Students attending this school will quickly feel known and a part of something warm and positive. We are also a quick walk to Eglinton Park and all of its amenities.

Our school has an average class size of eight which allows our educators to spend significant individualized time with each student while delivering a broad range of courses. When combined with first-class care, great teaching and exceptional guidance, wonderful things happen, and our students flourish.

What Makes Our Campus Unique?

Our campus student life is very active. We have access to local facilities where experiential learning takes places outside the classroom. Our art classes all take place in a professional Art Studio. We have access to a Fitness Facility across the street for all full-time students. There are also great healthy lunch options just outside our door!

At our campus, students get a personalized experience. Your child will feel known, liked, and ultimately intelligent and worthy. We make school less overwhelming and more engaging without compromising academic integrity. Small classes engender accountability—exactly what is needed for post-secondary education.

Message From Our Principal

At Blyth Academy, we know our students. With an average class size of 8, and youthful, engaging teachers who motivate and inspire, the roles of student and teacher are as collaborative partners in discussion or exploration. It is an entirely different model than one in which the teacher teaches and students are left to find ways to engage. Our young learners are active and acquiring knowledge themselves; very much empowered in understanding the ‘how’ and ‘why’ over the ‘what’ of education.

Our space is fresh and intimate, and our student body is active in building our own colourful range of club, team, and leadership opportunities. Come and ask the tough questions — our doors are open, we’re proud of what we have built, and prouder still to have a mix of students with varied pursuits and passions who are ‘together’ here and happy.

What our Families are Saying…

“By attending Blyth, our son not only received a great education from teachers who are enthusiastic and committed to each students’ success, but more importantly, he gained greater self-confidence to take with him on the next step of his journey. We are so thankful to find an academic institution that was able to bring out the most that our son has to offer when others were not able or willing. That is the true difference in attending Blyth, you are designed to bring out the best in your students from the amount of care and attention dedicated to each pupil and enable them to carry that forward.”

Gene and Carolyn Palazzo


“Some kids just cannot learn in an environment of 32+ students in each class – x8 subjects – all year — ours was one of these and he was very discouraged. I happened to see a notice of your open house, attended and we signed him up mid-year. It is not just his marks that have changed — his confidence in his ability to learn and his engagement with other students and the teachers have made a difference in his overall attitude toward school. This engagement learning is no longer possible in the public classroom given the numbers, they are assigned worksheets and sent home bored, frustrated and discouraged.”

Jill & Richard Reeves


“It is with a great deal of joy and pride to know that my son will be graduating from Blyth Academy after 4 years of support and guidance both academically and socially. He has the tools to move forward with confidence and the ability to navigate what lies ahead for him thanks to our decision to educate our son at Blyth. It has been a tremendous growing experience for all of us. Thank you to all the enthusiastic and caring teaching and support staff at Blyth. Small class sizes, big hearts!”

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.
