Introducing Middle School

Blyth Academy Lawrence Park

Launching September 2020

Message From Our Principal

About Our Campus

Since 2010, Blyth Academy has become firmly rooted in the Lawrence Park community and continues to grow with our launch of Grades 7 & 8 in September 2020.

We currently have 200 full-time students in Grades 9-12 and have graduated over 500 students to top universities and colleges. Over 90 percent of those graduates earned a spot in their first-choice destination. Blyth Academy is much more than a place to achieve credits; it is an encouraging and flexible environment in which every student is known.

In our small class sizes, our middle school students will engage with their peers and teachers in a dynamic setting. They will be challenged within our 14 categories of Promises, and empowered to understand the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of education, instead of just the ‘what’.

Our teachers love what they teach and are seriously invested in student success. The campus at Blyth Academy Lawrence Park is lively and intimate. We will have a wide range of clubs, teams and leadership opportunities to make for a full middle school experience.

Come ask the tough questions—our doors are always open. We have a unique set of experiences and challenges for our middle school students to thrive within.

In middle school at Blyth Academy Lawrence Park, a healthy litter-less lunch program will be made available to students daily. This program will include a selection of healthy kid-approved dishes that are served by the Real Good Lunch Club coaches. All students will eat the same meal (excepting in the case of dietary restriction) together at the same time.

The average cost of each meal is about $6.15 per student for a total of $93.00 per month, per student. This lunch program cost is included in the students’ yearly tuition.
