Class sizes are small, averaging 12 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 Lawrence Park campus “but also their families. That just wouldn’t be possible logistically in a larger school.” Our low student-to guidance counsellor ratios enable our teams to offer our high school students an unprecedented level of support. 

Each school is a community where every face is familiar, communication is open, and no one gets lost in a crowd. Blyth Academy students graduate with the tools in place for a seamless transition into successful post-secondary academic careers, and new ideas that will shape the world. 

A great school for each student 

The teachers understand that success looks different for every student, which is why education is tailored to the individual student — not the other way around. Small class sizes allow for personalized learning based on individual learning styles. This leads to a student experience that is personal, engaged, and motivating. 

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 Lawrence Park campus. “Students take art classes in a local art gallery, natural history in a museum, and athletics in world-class facilities. 

Part of a wider network of private schools 

Blyth Academy is proud to be a part of the Globeducate network of international private schools, which is recognized worldwide as a leader in private education.
