Blyth Academy

Small classes, dedicated teaching, experiential learning, first-class results

Founded in 1977, Blyth Academy is a private high school offering full-time and part-time enrollment and night school programs for Grades 9-12. Sam Blyth, the school’s founder and CEO, says “Blyth’s mission is to provide the best quality education to young Canadians in a way that is affordable, highly personalized, and empathic to the students and their families."

Today, Blyth Academy has nine schools, with three in the Toronto area (Yorkville, Lawrence Park, Thornhill), and Whitby, Barrie, Mississauga/Port Credit, BurlingtonLondon, and Ottawa and is the leading private school by enrollment in Canada.

Class sizes are small, averaging eight students per class, which means that every student has exclusive teacher-student focus. “There is a high level of communication between ourselves and the students,” says Michael Booth, principal of the Mississauga school, “but also their families. That just wouldn’t be possible logistically if I were the principal of a larger school.”

Each campus has a dedicated guidance counsellor that works one-on-one with students to mentor and manage the university selection process, provide career advice, and support all day-to-day academic and personal issues. Each principal has an open-door policy, allowing free dialogue between the student, parent, and administration.

A great school for each student

Learning plans are tailored to the student, rather than the other way around. Despite being the leading private school by enrollment in Canada—this given the number of campuses—the student experience is personal, engaged and intimate.

Students are able to join Blyth Academy full-time at four standard entry points during the school year. To complement the full-time day program, students may also wish to take part in evening or weekend part-time or private courses to reach forward during their school year.

Education that goes beyond the classroom

Having partnered with learning institutions in the community, students are able to learn through active, hands-on participation. “About 30 percent of class time occurs outside of traditional classrooms,” says Michael Booth, Principal of the Mississauga campus. “Students take art classes in a gallery, natural history in a museum, and athletics in world-class facilities.”

With Blyth Academy Global High School, Grade 11, 12 and gap year students can complete between one and four terms while living and traveling abroad.
