The timetable for Fall 2020 is posted below, and will be delivered virtually.
Similar to our academically rigorous in-class lessons, our virtual classes are structured with set start and end times, and deadlines are established for assignments, tests, and final exams. Classes are live and conducted through ZOOM video chat using a shared screen. Our teachers plan and execute lessons using PowerPoint, videos and white boards in real-time, allowing for students to have their questions answered directly. Extra one-on-one support from teachers is available during virtual office hours, as well as through email and recorded tutorials.
Any questions can be directed to Sarah Black, Night School Coordinator at sarah.black@blytheducation.com.

About Night School

Are you looking for the opportunity to work ahead by taking a credit course in advance of your next year? Are you seeking a prerequisite or a deeper understanding of the subject matter? We offer night school study at select campuses in Toronto and across Ontario. Choosing Blyth Academy for Night School courses allows students to maintain their home school while benefitting from our small class sizes and personalized approach. This gives students the opportunity to excel in core subjects while reaching forward for academic success.

Blyth Academy campuses will consider applications from mature students (20 years +) to study in night school programs, however, mature students must have an admissions interview with the campus before being enrolled in any course. Mature students are encouraged to consider enrolling in Blyth Academy Online courses as an alternative.

Night school courses run for the duration of a 15-week semester. You can choose from a range of subjects, including mathematics, science, and English. In addition, we also offer preparation for SATs. Course availability varies by campus and runs according to the schedule outlined below.

We strongly encourage students to register for Night School no later than 3 weeks prior to the start of classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How many students will be in the class?
A. Typically, classes will have between 6-16 students in them.
Q. Can you guarantee my child will get a certain mark?
A. Students are given more attention than they would receive in their home schools, but this does not guarantee a passing grade. We cannot guarantee a grade but can promise that students will be shown the ways in which they can obtain their desired outcome in the course, if they apply themselves.
Q. Can I join a class that has already started?
A. This will be up to the discretion of the principal at each individual campus.
Q. What happens if a class is canceled due to a closure (i.e. power outage or inclement weather)?
A. Each situation will vary, but students will either be given coursework in lieu or a virtual class will be held.
Q. How do my marks get put on my home school transcript?
A. We will send an official copy of your report card to your home school once it has been completed; they will put the completed course on your transcript for you.
Q. When will I find out who my teacher is and/or what textbook I need?
A. You will find out who your teacher is the first day of class. Textbook information will be provided a few days before your start date, and can be ordered very quickly through an in house service.
Q. What happens if not enough students are enrolled?
A. We require a minimum amount of students to be able to run a particular course. Our staff will contact families two weeks ahead of the start date to notify them if their course is at risk of being cancelled. If the course does not run due to low enrollment, registered students may choose to enrol in a private course, online course, switch campuses or request a full refund.
Q. Can I miss any classes?
A. Students can miss up to 5 classes without their credit being in jeopardy. For Summer/Saturday sessions only 2 classes can be missed.

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.
