Blyth Academy

Private Courses

Blyth Academy Private Studies provide students in Grades 9 – 12 with a one-on-one learning experience in which teachers tailor the lessons to the needs and schedule of the individual student. Whether you are looking to reach ahead, fill in gaps from prior coursework, or seek mastery of a subject, Blyth Academy Private Studies allows you to earn a high school credit in our most personalized learning environment. Schedules can be tailored to fit almost any requirements, and the hourly rate compares favourably to tutoring costs, and unlike tutoring, results in a fully accredited course being earned.

Our teachers are equipped to deal with most learning accommodations, and are fully up-to-date with the latest Ontario Ministry of Education curricula and evaluation policies.

Blyth Academy campuses will consider applications from mature students (20 years +) to study in private courses; 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.

Private courses are limited at some campuses. Please contact Private Course Coordinator Sarah Black at sarah.black@blytheducation.com if you have specific questions before registering.

Private & Repeat Course Policies

COURSE DURATION: Unless otherwise pre-arranged, all courses must be completed within the following schedule.

Full Course: 6 months
Repeat Course in a Private Setting: 3 months

ADDITIONAL HOURS: If students require additional hours beyond a Full Course or Repeat Course in a Private Setting for any reason, additional hours will be charged at a rate of $50/hour. The number of additional hours required will be determined in consultation between the Campus and the family and must be paid in full, prior to commencement.

CANCELLATION OF CLASSES & ABSENCES: If a student is unable to attend a prearranged private class or requires a change in their class time, he/she must advise the teacher via email a minimum of 24-hours in advance. In the absence of such notice, any time invested by the teacher will be deducted from remaining course time and will necessitate an additional fee to enable completion of the credit. Such calculations will be based on a $50 per hour teaching fee. The Campus will dictate the number of outstanding hours required and the student and family will be notified of any such additional fee required a minimum of 2 weeks prior to course completion.

Ready To Start?

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy is a remote organization in hopes of doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We will be receiving all emails, phone calls, and voicemails and are dedicated to maintaining business as usual. Thank you for your continued support!

Though our doors are temporarily closed, the minds of our students will remain open. Our students will continue their academic journey through virtual classrooms, to ensure our students don’t miss out on valuable curriculum hours. Our small class sizes and individualized approach will continue in a virtual model, as will the structure that students need to be engaged and successful during the closure. Live virtual classes, office hours, guidance support and even extracurricular activities will continue through virtual tools. In these uncertain times, we believe that our students benefit greatly from the structure, social interaction and support their school provides them.

Blyth Academy is committed to providing students with personalized instruction and support, focusing on critical and creative thinking skills, and nurturing curiosity, innovation and student leadership. We are also committed to providing ongoing communication between the school and families.
