Jeremy Zhu, Mississauga Student

Coming to Blyth Academy Ottawa in Grade ten and being able to catch up grade 9 online at the same time was nowhere near as stressful as I thought it would be. The small class sizes helped me get into the class work and I learnt so much more than I would have in a bigger class. The guidance team is so full of support I never have to feel I am alone when it comes to contacting universities or applying for my future education!

Sophia Kay, Ottawa Student

Blyth Academy helped me a lot with university applications. Our guidance counsellor Ms. Pedersen is the best counsellor in my life; she is so nice and professional at helping students with academic suggestions! I got 10 acceptance offers from Canadian universities when I graduated, and I am now studying commerce at the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University.
