I’m delighted and very proud of the fact that we’ve been able to maintain much of that “personal” element through our virtual classrooms. I’d like to thank our fabulous faculty, and also you students and parents, for being so responsive and engaged.

Important Update Due To COVID-19 Concerns

Important Update Due To COVID-19 Concerns

The Ontario government has made the decision to close all publicly funded schools for two weeks following March Break due to COVID-19 concerns. The safety of our students is Blyth Academy’s number one priority. All Blyth Academy campuses will also be closed from March 14-April 5.

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy is 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.

Our plans include continuing term three virtually, along with all of the usual processes for student report cards and information sharing with post-secondary institutions delivered on schedule. Planning for term four is underway with Principals and guidance staff working on finalizing courses and students’ schedules.

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.
