What Makes Our Campus Unique?

At Blyth Academy Yorkville we demonstrate high academic standards while maintaining an inclusive culture. The teaching staff and student body are community-oriented and accepting of all students. 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. In addition to supporting the development of study skills and knowledge through extended academic support options, we invite students to create purpose, discover principles, and practice responsible global citizenship. Our Passport Program promotes activities in preparation for post-graduate life, intercultural competence and wellness, offering extra-curricular options driven by student initiative and interest.

Message From Our Principal

Welcome to Blyth Academy Yorkville, an inclusive, diverse school community where students forge lasting connections with teachers and peers as they engage in a rigorous learning experience. This year, we are very excited to launch the Blyth Academy Passport Program, through which students will earn certificates in three strands: post-secondary preparation, intercultural competence, and wellness. This program will supplement our signature offerings of small class sizes, extensive academic support and highly personalized learning pathways.

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.

What our Families are Saying…

“Our daughter was lost in a class of 40 at her former school. At Blyth, she has personal attention and her marks reflect her happiness. We are ‘over the moon’ to see her enthusiastically going to school each day! The teachers at Blyth are proactive in their approach to teaching the curriculum. Now she has eight pupils in her class, receives personal attention, and her marks have improved dramatically. I love to see enthusiastic teaching efforts. You guys rock!”


“Blyth Academy teachers and administration are professional and respectful. The team at the Yorkville Campus are encouraging, perceptive, mindful and extremely supportive of the students’ academic and personal needs. I am grateful that my son has had the opportunity to attend Blyth Yorkville since Grade 9 and just finished Grade 11. In September 2019, my younger son will enrol in Grade 9. I would highly recommend the Blyth Academy Program for all Grades.”


“This was a great Grade 12 year for my son. The teachers he had were amazing and so supportive. He enjoyed the intimacy of small classes and will enter university with a rock-solid understanding of fundamentals. He became immersed into the community of Blyth through student council and had a fantastic year. Thank you, Blyth.”
