Blyth Academy is proud to announce our newest international education program in the heart of Italy, Blyth Academy Florence!

Starting September 2017, students in Grades 11, 12 and Gap Year will have a unique opportunity to continue their High School credits at our newest co-ed Academy in the Renaissance city of Florence. Students will benefit from small class sizes, individuated teaching and engaged, supportive staff. In addition to standard curriculum, students can select AP courses, SAT preparation and exciting new co-op courses in fashion, design and visual arts.

Students will be accommodated in residences that are located near their classrooms, public transit, and shops. They will have ample opportunity to immerse themselves in local culture and explore Italy and Europe as part of this experiential learning program.

We look forward to sharing more details about this incredible education opportunity with you.

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.
