Blyth Academy Thornhill

Message from our Principal

May I warmly welcome you to our campus, located at the intersectionโ€จ of Bayview Avenue and John Street in Thornhill. Although we are centrally located in the Thornhill Square, and close to many of the attractions, galleries, and events in the vicinity, at our core we are a quiet, welcoming, and peaceful school community. From the moment you walk in the front door of our campus, you will immediately discover the type of culture we have created here at Blyth Academy Thornhill. From our Academic Administrator Marlene (who has a fine selection of candy available for students) to our experienced and dedicated OCT teachers, to our in-depth guidance support provided by Mr. Butler, you will understand that we are a school with a holistic and personal approach to learning.

Our Student Rep of the week, Alexander K went on quite the adventure in Iceland with us this summer! Learn more about him! ๐Ÿ™Œ
Hometown: Ottawa
Current Grade: 12
Blyth Academy Program(s) attended: Grade 11 Bio โ€“ Iceland
What was your favourite part of the program? My favorite part of the program was traveling and learning with all the extraordinary people on the program. I went to Iceland by myself so I especially liked how one day nobody knows each other and the next you feel like you've known them forever.
Where is your #1 vacation destination? I have to say Asia is the next place Iโ€™d like to visit. I find the culture interesting but I'm hoping to experience it on the Blyth Academy Bhutan program.
If you could be an animal, what would you be? I think Iโ€™d want to be a bird of some sort? I've always thought it would be cool to fly around and look down to and see how small everything was.
