Post-Graduate Program | Blyth Academy London
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 London’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 London, 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-Gradute Foundations Program
At Blyth Academy London, 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.
Additional Grade 12 Credits
Blyth Academy London offers all mathematics (MDM4U, MHF4U, MCV4U) and science (SBI4U, SCH4U, SPH4U) courses as well as ENG4U each year. Beyond these courses, we work with our students to ensure that they are able to meet the OSSD requirements. After that, we work with our students to identify several options that are of interest to them.
At Blyth Academy London we provide students with the opportunity to upgrade their course marks and gain a better understanding of key concepts before moving on to post-secondary through our online school, Blyth Academy Online.
Online courses are available to all students through Blyth Academy Online. With over 100 high school courses to choose from, this makes taking the courses that interest you all the more possible.
Blyth Academy London works closely with the Pillar Non-Profit Organization, specifically the Change the World program, to find and develop leadership and volunteer opportunities within the community. Blyth Academy also offers opportunities for students to volunteer abroad during the summer or over March break.
Blyth Academy London offers private Advanced Placement Preparation courses to interested students. The motivation for taking Advanced Placement courses may vary, but all who participate are better prepared for their post-secondary lives.
First Year Studies
Blyth Academy London participates in Western University’s WISE program, which allows students to take 1 credit that can be used as an elective and count towards an eventual Bachelor’s degree. Students attend classes on Western main campus or can take a class at any one of the 3 affiliate campuses (Huron, King’s or Brescia).
Study Abroad Programs
Students at Blyth Academy London can study abroad for a term, a semester, or a year through our travelling programs or at one of our International Campuses. Students can also take summer courses through our International Summers Programs.
From September 2018, we will have four entry points and terms each year: Early September, mid-November, early February and mid-April. The program can be as short as one term, a semester or a full academic year.
Each custom designed program will have differing costs but fees can be as low as $595 CAN for an online course.
