Advanced Placement at Blyth Academy

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are university-level courses taken by high school students. Students may choose to demonstrate their understanding and application of the material studied by taking AP examinations in May. Curricula and examinations are standardized by the College Board.

The motivation for taking advanced placement courses may vary, but all who participate are better prepared for their post-secondary lives: learning how to tackle challenging academic issues, honing time management and study skills, and most importantly – building confidence. At some colleges or universities, students who receive a high score on their advanced placement exam(s) will receive a credit and/or be exempted from introductory courses, allowing for direct entry into second year core courses, or eligibility to take extra classes. Regardless of this, students who take AP courses stand out, letting colleges and universities know that they have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate environment.

Blyth Academy offers Advanced Placement courses via Blyth Academy Online [] and occasionally at select campuses. Courses with Blyth Academy Online can be started at any time, and accessed from anywhere.

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction.  The Blyth Academy model of small class sizes, flexible scheduling and individualized approach have enabled us to remain faithful to our standards. Our commitment to ongoing and meaningful communication between school, teachers, students and families has been critical to this effort.

Although our students have transitioned into summer mode and COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen, we are looking ahead to what September will hold for our campuses and families.
We want to be clear - our preference and our priority is to get students back to our campuses, but we must ensure this is done in a safe and effective way. While we await official guidance from Public Health and the Ministry of Education, a "return to school" task force has been hard at work putting concrete operational plans in place for all likely scenarios. This includes a full return to campus with safeguards, a blended model of virtual and in-campus learning and the continuation of fully virtual classrooms. All scenarios will provide robust learning and live, daily instruction and interaction with teachers and peers. 
With ten campuses across Ontario, we realize that each one of our schools is a unique space and community. We will be implementing across-the-board policies on hand washing, facility cleaning and social distancing measures. Each school is also prepared to pivot individually based on the guidance of local health authorities and to best serve students and families. 
Our recent survey showed that over 80 per cent of Blyth Academy families are eager to return to campuses, and we are hard at work to prepare for this day. As September's scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.
