Blyth Academy

Campus Admissions Process

Please Note: Due to school closures aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19, our admissions process has been modified. Applications are being accepted for the remainder of the 2020-2021 Academic Year and the 2021-2022 Academic Year (starting September 2021). Our team stands ready to assist parents and students to find the best individualized solution to their academic needs.

Admission Process - Step One: Learn about Blyth Academy

STEP ONE: SPEAK TO OUR TEAM, LEARN ABOUT BLYTH ACADEMY

As the initial step of Blyth Academy’s admissions process, we encourage all parents and students to book a personalized virtual consultation with a campus Principal or Admissions Advisor.

Given the unprecedented disruptions to teaching and learning across Ontario, our team stands ready to assist parents in finding individualized solutions to their child(ren)’s academic needs.

For general inquiries, or to book a Principal consultation, contact our Admissions Advisors here.

Admission Process - Step Three: Submit Application

STEP TWO: COMPLETE AN ONLINE APPLICATION

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and are still being accepted for the 2020-2021 Academic Year.

Scholarships are available for students applying for full-year studies, including students joining a campus in Term 2 (November). For more information, click here.

In order to submit an application, families must first create an account on our Student Application Portal. From your account you can manage your application(s) and make fee payments.

Note that you will be required to pay a deposit at the time of application. If your child(ren)’s application is not successful, all deposits will be refunded.

Admission Process - Step Four: Application Review

STEP THREE: 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 students need to prepare for their 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; interview with the Principal 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).

Admission Process - Step Five: Course Selection

STEP FOUR: 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 (admissions@blytheducation.com | 1-866-960-3552).

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction.  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.

Although our students have transitioned into summer mode and COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen, we are looking ahead to what September will hold for our campuses and families.
We want to be clear - our preference and our priority is to get students back to our campuses, but we must ensure this is done in a safe and effective way. While we await official guidance from Public Health and the Ministry of Education, a "return to school" task force has been hard at work putting concrete operational plans in place for all likely scenarios. This includes a full return to campus with safeguards, a blended model of virtual and in-campus learning and the continuation of fully virtual classrooms. All scenarios will provide robust learning and live, daily instruction and interaction with teachers and peers. 
With ten campuses across Ontario, we realize that each one of our schools is a unique space and community. We will be implementing across-the-board policies on hand washing, facility cleaning and social distancing measures. Each school is also prepared to pivot individually based on the guidance of local health authorities and to best serve students and families. 
Our recent survey showed that over 80 per cent of Blyth Academy families are eager to return to campuses, and we are hard at work to prepare for this day. As September's scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.
