About Our Campus

Blyth Academy Thornhill offers specialized private high school education in the heart of the community. Located in Thornhill Square, our campus is only 30 minutes from downtown Toronto and steps away from the TTC.

Thanks to our centralized location, our students have the unique opportunity to take part in one-of-a-kind experiential learning outside of the classroom. 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. We do not simply partner with these local organizations, we co-develop our courses to create immersive and rich learning opportunities.

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.

Message From Our Principal

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.

Our focus is on the individual student – your needs and your strengths. We provide an experiential approach to education, believing that the best learning opportunities are those that let students actually engage with the subject-matter. For students who wish to do more, we encourage participation in extra-curricular activities, Blyth-wide events, student government, community-based initiatives, and fundraising activities for campus selected charities. Let us show you how Blyth Academy Thornhill makes sense for your family. I look forward to meeting you and discussing the learning opportunities available for your child.

What our Families are Saying…

“My year at Blyth Academy Thornhill was definitely the most important and influential one of my high school career. The teachers and staff are supportive, helpful, and truly care about the success of their students. I graduated not only with the marks I needed to get into my top choice of school and program but also with life skills that I will carry with me throughout my post-secondary education. Thank you, Blyth Academy for making my last year of high school so rewarding and memorable.”
