OUR BRAND NEW CAMPUS

BLYTH ACADEMY COMES TO THE GLEBE (OTTAWA)

Helping You Achieve Success

About Our Campus

We are delighted to share a progress update on our new high school campus in the Lansdowne Park district. Though the start of construction on the new school was delayed due to COVID-19, work is now well underway on what will be known as Blyth Academy The Glebe.

Construction is moving along on the two-story campus located on Bank Street surrounded by modern amenities, 40-acres of urban park, and vibrant all-ages entertainment complex. Steps away is the TD Place Stadium and Arena complex where our student-athletes from the Ottawa 67’s practice and compete.

Grades 9 - 12

Average class size of 8

15 bright contemporary classrooms (after full construction)

Student commons with kitchenette

State of the art science lab

We are ministry inspected and adhere to all provincial standards. BSID #889791

The campus is designed to be a modern learning facility with 15 bright, contemporary classrooms, comfortable student commons with kitchenette, and state of the art science lab — a fresh, new space for students to reach their academic goals. 

We will be closing our current location on Richmond Road and moving to Bank Street once construction is complete. The anticipation is rising and our staff and students are excited to move into the new space and start enjoying our new home. We look forward to welcoming new families with room to expand our capacity to 180 students, while maintaining our small class size and supportive learning environment.
​​​​​
The full development process is expected to occur in two phases, and as we navigate construction in the world of COVID-19, we continue to work towards opening our doors in the Spring of 2021.

Ready to experience the Blyth Academy difference?

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.
