The Blyth Advantage
Blyth Academy offers a private high school experience that focuses on personalized education, very small class sizes and experiential learning. This unique approach to education has met with enthusiastic response and success among students and parents since we opened our doors over 30 years ago. Today, we are Canada’s largest private high school, with campuses throughout Southern Ontario.
With class sizes that average fewer then eight students, we are able to provide a highly personalized education. Every one of our students has a seat at the front of the class: everyone is involved, and everyone receives the full attention of the teacher. This encourages the full engagement of the entire class, each and every day.
Blyth’s experiential learning model is one of the pillars of our success. We hire teachers from outside the traditional classroom, bringing a fresh and personal perspective to class. We bring students’ out of the traditional classroom, so they can participate more fully in the learning process. Our partnerships with various learning institutions, such as the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario, encourage more hands-on learning.
Four Term Structure
Our academic year is divided into four terms, with two classes each term. This new approach to education has dramatic benefits for students. With only two classes to focus on, as opposed to the traditional setting of four courses per semester, students spend less time juggling academic workloads and more time learning. This allows more time for in-depth review and individual attention, and students respond with improved attitudes and performance.
Blyth Academy attracts thousands of teacher applications every year, allowing us to be very selective about our staff. Our teachers are selected for their excellent teaching skills, passion, depth of knowledge, and ability to empathize and encourage students. We’re very proud of our team, and regular evaluations assure us that they remain dedicated and passionate.
We believe that high quality education should be available for everyone. With tuition starting below $10,000 for the full academic year, Blyth Academy is more accessible than almost any other private high school. This affordability gives more high school students access to the academic excellence we offer, and more. It also provides students with the intellectual and personal learning that Blyth Academy offers – lessons that last a lifetime.
