Post-Graduate Program | Blyth Academy Lawrence Park
Many recent high-school graduates are not prepared for the rigours of university. Surveys and studies show alarming drop-out and failure rates from Canadian institutions — particularly amongst 17- and 18-year-olds. Many students would benefit from completing their high school education in five years rather than four. Blyth Academy Waterloo’s Post-Graduate program builds in that extra year to help develop students’ academic and social maturity, giving them a better chance to access and succeed at the best universities.
Our Post-Graduate Program
At Blyth Academy Lawrence Park, we believe students can mature socially and stay engaged academically whether by upgrading courses, taking new and additional Grade 12 credits while combining these with one or two of a variety of programs that we offer. Each program will be custom designed to suit the needs of the student from a menu of options.
Post-Graduate Foundations Program
At Blyth Academy Lawrence Park students will be taught essential skills in our Post-Graduate Foundations program. These skills include developing opinions, interpreting information, independent learning, and active participation in our small-group setting and more!
