Our campus is adjacent to some of the most exciting facilities the community has to offer. We have direct access to the Thornhill Community Centre, Thornhill Library as well as Thornhill Fitness Centre.

What Makes Our Campus Unique?

Our campus encourages individualized learning by maintaining small classroom sizes and a warm and inviting community. We support experiential learning through partnerships with organizations in the community. While learning in a classroom setting is important, so is learning within the community. We encourage students to find their own voice and give them the space and attention they need to blossom. We support a diverse student body and our students are passionate about taking part in leadership opportunities.

Step inside our doors and you’ll find a quiet, welcoming, and respectful school community where students feel seen and heard. I look forward to introducing you to our school and exceptional teaching and guidance staff. Our energy and focus is on ensuring each student’s abilities and skills are identified, honed and creatively directed towards achieving their post-secondary vision. Our Head of Student Life works with students and staff to develop experiential field trips, community-based volunteer opportunities, and school-life activities that make learning fun!

At Blyth Academy Thornhill you will experience a refreshing level of communication and responsiveness. Students will always know where they’re at and where and when they need support. Our “Open Door” policy definitely encourages strong relationships with our students and families. To learn more about our unique school, I encourage you to meet with myself and the team, visit some classes, and speak to current students about how Blyth Academy has inspired their happiness and success.

Ready to experience the Blyth Academy difference?

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy is 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.

Our plans include continuing term three virtually, along with all of the usual processes for student report cards and information sharing with post-secondary institutions delivered on schedule. Planning for term four is underway with Principals and guidance staff working on finalizing courses and students’ schedules.

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.
