Post-Graduate Program | Blyth Academy Whitby

Many recent high-school graduates are not prepared for the rigours of university. Surveys and studies show alarming drop-out and failure rates from Canadian institutions — particularly amongst 17- and 18-year-olds. Many students would benefit from completing their high school education in five years rather than four. Blyth Academy Whitby’s Post-Graduate program builds in that extra year to help develop students’ academic and social maturity, giving them a better chance to access and succeed at the best universities.

Our Post-Graduate Program

At Blyth Academy Whitby, we believe students can mature socially and stay engaged academically whether by participating in a co-op placement, taking new and additional Grade 12 credits while combining these with one or two of a variety of programs that we offer. Each program will be custom designed to suit the needs of the student from a menu of options.

Post-Graduate Foundations program

At Blyth Academy Whitby, students will be taught essential skills in our Post-Graduate Foundations program. These skills include developing opinions, interpreting information, independent learning, and active participation in our small-group setting and more!
