Introducing Virtual Summer School
WE ARE: CURRENT
One of Blyth Academy’s founding principles revolves around staying current. To our team, this means having the technology and flexibility at our fingertips to adapt quickly in order to deliver top-tier academic experiences to our students – no matter the situation.
As we continue to proactively develop new ways to seamlessly meet our students’ educational needs, we are actively creating a number of new programs to support their academic journey.
New this coming season, we are proud to introduce Blyth Academy Virtual Summer School (VSS), which allows students to earn a high school credit remotely – from their house, cottage, or anywhere there is wifi.
What sets Blyth Academy VSS apart from traditional online learning platforms is the connection to teachers and fellow students. Our VSS classroom structure enables students to attend lessons provided by their teachers in real-time, keeping them on-schedule and on-track in their studies.
Just like in-school classes, our students can react, ask questions, engage in class discussions, and collaborate with peers on projects and assignments. Students will have the same classmates and teachers throughout their courses, allowing them to develop familiarity and trust; and our faculty are available for office hours outside of the virtual classroom to help students with any questions they have, or any help they need navigating certain parts of the curriculum.
Virtual Summer School is not reserved for current Blyth Academy students! Our classes are open to students in Grades 10-12 across Ontario, and anyone beyond looking to earn one of over 15 Ontario high school credits. Virtual Summer School sessions will run from 9:00 a.m. until 1:pm. daily, starting July 6 and completing on July 31, 2020.
