About Our Campus

Blyth Academy Whitby is conveniently located in the Durham Region. The school is located in the heart of the old downtown centre of Whitby, close to the Public Library, Peel Park, and plenty of local shops, restaurants, and galleries. This campus is readily accessible with easy bus access and surrounded by municipal pay parking.

Our experienced guidance counsellors work regularly with each student to prepare them for post secondary and beyond, with advice and counselling given during the application and scholarship selection process.

Our school has an average class size of eight which allows our educators to spend significant individualized time with each student while delivering a broad range of courses. When combined with first-class care, exceptional guidance and great teaching, wonderful things happen, and our students flourish.

What Makes Our Campus Unique?

We have two separate campuses – one for our Middle School students in Grades 7-8, and another for our high school students in Grades 9-12. We are small and caring, which means everyone knows everyone else, and we take care of each other. We are nurturing, while at the same time being academically rigorous, which allows students to see their innate potential. We put students first and treat everyone as an individual.

Message From Our Principal

I would personally like to extend a warm welcome to you and your parents and invite you to come to visit us in the near future. Our school is an outstanding educational environment whose faculty is committed to providing an integrated university preparatory education in a warm and caring setting.

Our students are encouraged to do their best and are given the necessary support to help them, in their studies and beyond. Our teachers are dedicated to ensuring that students gain a complete understanding of the subject matter while making engaging connections outside the classroom and to other disciplines. Our classes are very small and communication between teachers and students is consistent, encouraging and frequent.

What our Families are Saying…

“Blyth has been a real success for our daughter. She will tell you herself it exceeded even her expectations. The educational growth, maturity growth and also a shift in outlook on life that we saw was more than we had hoped for. All that in just one year. This all came from the principal, staff, students and environment that Blyth Academy Whitby delivered. Our daughter found the right place to excel in order to meet the very high and unique requirements she needed in order to attend university in her chosen field. She is, this fall, off to pursue a dream that only 18 months ago seemed out of reach.”


“Blyth Academy Whitby has done an amazing job of building back my son’s confidence and getting him back on track to grade level as a result of him not being taught the provincial standard at his prior private school. The academic and personal growth that we have seen as a result of the support at Blyth Academy Whitby has provided has been simply amazing. My son, for the first time this year, now in grade 10, has started talking about post-secondary education and focuses on completing homework and assignments at home with little or no involvement from his mother or myself.”


“Starting grade nine can be stressful at the best of times, but continuing in grade ten after being homeschooled has its own added anxieties. The teachers, staff and the other students at Blyth Academy Whitby took the time to support the transition of our daughter into the school environment. The small campus, small classes and the attendance of other hockey-playing students has made it all that much easier and have helped our daughter to set a strong foundation on which she is building her successful secondary school career.”


Ready to experience the Blyth Academy difference?

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Full-time, Night School and Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction. We have been heartened by the resilience of our community of students, teachers and families through these challenging times, and the spirit with which our community has pressed forward with coursework, office hours, extracurricular activities, guidance consultations and community initiatives. 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.

Going forward, we are staying agile in our responsiveness to developments with COVID-19, always with the health and safety of our community top of mind. We are conducting ongoing planning to confront scenarios as they develop, with an array of options combining virtual classrooms, distancing measures at the schools, and scheduling modifications; all combined with the innovative teaching practices our faculty are developing through collaborative exchanges within and between our campuses. We will have several phases of return to, and if necessary retreat from, the bricks and mortar classrooms at the ready. We will continue consultations with our community and provincial health and education authorities to determine best options as the COVID situation progresses on its non-linear path.
