SMALL CLASSES, INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION
Our international students account for 10% of our campus enrolment and are provided with a very personalized educational program. They receive individual attention from teachers and are always engaged with an average class size of 8 students. Our international students are offered a very unique experience as they are fully immersed with Canadian students. They have a wonderful opportunity to improve their language skills and make new Canadian friends.
Blyth Academy tailors the program to the individual student. Taking into account each international student’s learning style and extra-curricular responsibilities; we are able to customize a plan unique to the individual that allows each international student to reach their potential. 50% of our international students return to Blyth Academy for a second year of study. Blyth Academy’s unique experiential learning environment is one of the key pillars of our success. Experiential learning encourages students to be enthusiastic and engaged in their learning process. It brings the classroom to life, and takes the students outside the traditional classroom setting to participate in hands-on learning. Our international students love Blyth and keep coming back for more every year!
SCHOOLS THAT FIT EVERY STUDENT
With twelve different schools to choose from in Canada and 1 in the United States of America, there is a school for every international student. You may want to study downtown at our Yorkville campus or in the sixth largest city in Canada Mississauga, or close to the Niagara Escarpment in Burlington; we have a school for every student.
GREAT PARTNERS IN EDUCATION
Our partnerships with various learning institutions in the community, such as the Royal Ontario Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto International Film Festival and Outward Bound Canada at the Evergreen BrickWorks, as well as many applicable local organizations, further allow us to take students out of the classroom to learn through active, hands-on participation. Experiential learning creates engagement as learning becomes real when it applies to the students’ world. By interacting with their peers, their teachers, and their curriculum in real-world settings, students are better prepared for university and life skills develop.
What our families are saying
Our family started the Blyth Academy ‘journey’ before we even came to Canada. Our daughter started with Blyth Academy through their online classes so that she would be able to join the right class, age wise, when we got to Canada. When we arrived from Australia our daughter started in school classes and the staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful in assisting her to settle in. Since then we have had a very positive experience with the school. All staff have always been available for a chat and advice when needed with very much an open-door policy and they seem to always be on the lookout for extra-curricular experiences which the students might be interested in.
