GET AHEAD THIS SUMMER

SUMMER SCHOOL August Session

Summer School courses in August will be delivered using our virtual classrooms with Blyth Academy Orbit.

Blyth Academy Orbit will consider applications from mature students (20 years +) to study in summer school programs, however, mature students must have an admissions interview with the campus before being enrolled in any course.

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

Blyth Academy offers Grade 10–12 courses with start dates in August. See below for course schedules. Click here to enrol in Summer School.

Virtual Summer School

Want to further your education remotely this summer while still being connected to classmates and a classroom experience? This summer, Blyth Academy is offering Virtual Summer School classes with Blyth Academy Orbit that mirror our regular in-class experience. What does that mean for students? They can now participate in daily virtual classes from home, the cottage, or anywhere there is Wi-Fi, at regularly scheduled times Monday to Friday. The classes, although virtual, allow students to visually and verbally partake in lessons led by a teacher, as well as contribute to class discussions and collaborate with peers in breakout groups online.

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. All classes are recorded and made available within our online portal, giving students the ability to reference lessons when preparing for assignments and assessments.
This year, enjoy your summer and earn a credit without the added commute. You can now log in to our virtual classroom to stay connected to peers and teachers wherever you may be. For more information, please call 416-960-3552. Click here to enrol in Summer School.

Student Engagement

We bring the curriculum to life with virtual field trips and designated time for socializing activities. Our “cameras on” policy for our virtual classrooms further maximizes student engagement and participation. Breakout rooms are commonly leveraged as a tool in our classes and help students discuss concepts in small groups which is vital to learning.

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.
