What Makes Our Campus Unique?

Blyth Academy Ottawa has two unique locations, one dedicated to Grades 7-10, and the second to Grades 11 and 12. Grades 7 and 8 follow the Ministry curriculum guidelines, with the advantage of small class size and experiential learning, connecting the curriculum to real-life. Beginning in Grade 9, students benefit from 4 terms per year, with 2 subjects per term. Grades 9 and 10 students focus on 2 academic subjects in the morning, followed by a very active Foundations Program to build study and life skills. At our Upper Campus, students focus on two subjects per term, allowing for high levels of flexibility in scheduling. Individualized guidance support begins at Grade 7. In addition, our flexible academic schedule makes us the preferred school for many elite athletes in the Ottawa area.

Message From Our Principal

At Blyth Academy Ottawa, we take pride in our watching our students thrive. Our team of teachers and Guidance Counsellors are experts at thinking outside of the box, delivering enriching and engaging content, and helping students connect the curriculum to real-life. We develop accommodating schedules and deliver outstanding educational opportunities that take full advantage of the unique location of our school and the partnerships that we have forged in our neighbourhood.

With all of this, we aim to not only prepare our students for the challenges of post-secondary education but for life. I invite you to come in and experience our relaxed, engaging environment and discuss with me or one of our guidance counsellors how we can help your child thrive.

What our Families are Saying…

“My daughter’s experience at Blyth Academy has been very positive and exceptional. We cannot say enough about the school, the staff, the teachers, the learning that takes place every day. The small class sizes and individual attention have greatly enhanced our daughter’s learning experience and growth. Each student can fully engage, contribute, debate openly, respect each other’s views and develop the valuable academic and social skills necessary to succeed in a post-secondary environment. If only all schools could offer this type of learning environment and model. We highly recommend Blyth Academy to any parents considering their child’s high school options. A huge Thank You to Ms. Larose, Mr. Hall, Ms. Kiros and to each of the teachers for everything you do!”

“Attending Blyth Academy Ottawa has been a life changing experience for us regarding our son. He told us that Blyth is the first school that he actually looks forward to going ‎when it’s the weekend. He may not be always on time, but he is always happy to go. We are grateful.”
