Principal's Message

Ian Hughes, Principal

Dear Prospective Students and Parents,

Thank you for your interest in our school. Blyth Academy Burlington has been wonderfully supported by our constituents as well as the community as a whole. In just three years we have grown tremendously and are now an established and unique space where students can prosper academically (and in some cases, athletically).

Blyth Academy Burlington has a strong commitment to offering outstanding education coupled with unique opportunities for interested student-athletes. Our academic program runs from grades 5–12 with small classroom sizes (up to a maximum of 12 students) and focuses on preparing students for post-secondary education and career training. Our teachers care about their students and give them all of the extra assistance and personal attention they need to succeed.

As the Principal, my responsibility is to ensure that your child receives a quality education within a safe, respectful and engaging environment. I am a firm believer in a whole school approach and one of our major focuses here at Blyth Academy Burlington is to ensure ongoing communication between school and home. As such, we are able to better enhance your child’s educational experiences.

We encourage you to schedule a school tour to see the classrooms and meet our teachers. To arrange a visit, or to have any additional questions answered, please call Elaine Armstrong, Academic Administrator, at 905-637-0346.
Once again, thank you for your interest in Blyth Academy Burlington. We’re proud of our abilities to inspire and engage students and sincerely look forward to welcoming you into our community.

Respectfully,
Ian Hughes
Principal, Blyth Academy Burlington

Curriculum Traditional

Primary Curriculum: Traditional


  • Pedagogies and subject courses


  • Mathematics Traditional Math

      Traditional Math typically teaches a method or algorithm FIRST, and THEN teaches the applications for the method. Traditional algorithms are emphasized and practiced regularly: repetition and drills are frequently used to ensure foundational mastery in the underlying mathematical procedures. The traditional approach to math views math education as akin to building a logical edifice: each brick depends on the support of the previously laid ones, which represent mastery over a particular procedure or method. Traditional Math begins by giving students a tool, and then challenges students to practice using that tool an applied way, with progressively challenging problems. In this sense Traditional Math aims to establish procedural understanding before conceptual and applied understanding.

    Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.
