Admissions Process

I would like to apply to…

STEP ONE: LEARN ABOUT BLYTH ACADEMY

As the initial step of Blyth Academy’s admissions process, we encourage you to attend an Information Session or Open House at one of our campuses in order to learn about our educational philosophy, meet key campus staff members, tour our facilities and get a feel for the campus. Our approach is different from traditional private schools, and we want to ensure you feel your child(ren) will thrive in our school community. Click to RSVP to an upcoming Information Session or Open House of your choice.

If you are unable to attend an event in person, please contact the campus directly or our knowledgeable Admissions Advisors at 1-866-960-3552 or admissions@blytheducation.com to learn about our academic offerings.

If you would like to request a Blyth Academy brochure, simply fill out this form to download any of our campus brochures.

STEP TWO: ATTEND A CAMPUS INTERVIEW

The next step in Blyth Academy’s admissions process is to schedule an interview with the Principal of your intended campus.

This interview is an opportunity for our Principal to explore your student’s academic needs, interests and goals to determine if and how Blyth Academy can support them. We encourage families to attend the interview together. To schedule an interview, please call the campus directly, an Admissions Advisor (416-960-3552) or email admissions@blytheducation.com.

You are requested to bring the following documentation for your interview:

  • For high school students: Ontario Student Transcript containing information from the past 12 months. If one is not available, please bring a Credit Counseling Summary or a student’s most recent report card.
  • For elementary students: the student’s most recent report card
  • IEP (Individual Education Plan) if the student has one.

Additionally, your child may be required to do a brief writing sample and basic math problems as part of the admissions interview.

In addition to an interview, student’s also have the option of requesting to spend time at the prospective campus before officially commencing study. We refer to this opportunity as spending a “Day in the Life” on campus which provides the student an opportunity to become proactively familiar with their campus environment.

STEP THREE: SUBMIT APPLICATION

If, based on completing steps one and two, the applicant and the Principal mutually determine that Blyth Academy is a good fit, you will be invited to complete a formal application.

Please note, if you submit a full time application prior to completing steps one and two of the application process, you will be contacted by the specified campus to schedule an interview.

STEP FOUR: APPLICATION REVIEW

The Admissions Committee reviews complete applications* on a rolling basis. If admitted to Blyth Academy, you will receive an email confirming your student’s enrolment. This email will include all of the details you will need to prepare for your first day, including a copy of the Code of Conduct, which must be reviewed and signed off on prior to starting classes.

*Complete applications include: the online application and fee; up-to-date transcript or credit counselling summary (or report card for elementary students); Individual Education Plan (IEP), Psychoeducational Report (if applicable); and additional documentation as requested by the campus (i.e. references, work samples, student reflection).

STEP FIVE: COURSE SELECTION

The final step in the Blyth Academy admissions process occurs once a student has received their offer of enrolment and schedules a meeting with the Guidance Head of their campus to complete course selection for the upcoming academic year. Students can schedule this meeting at any point before the first day of class.

If you have any questions regarding the above listed steps, please don’t hesitate to contact our Admissions Team!
