Message From the Principal
Our school is located on Bloor West at South Kingsway and is a new, light-filled space where our students are engaged in both academics and extracurricular pursuits. In our school, everyone is known and is valued.
Our faculty team works with students to engage them in a collaborative learning process that leads them toward achievement through supporting and nurturing their passions. Ultimately, everyone here strives to be happy, healthy, and successful in their pursuits.
With an average class size of 12, we offer learning opportunities where discussion and exploration are at the forefront. Students learn and grow academically and personally when engaged in our dynamic programming with a focus on experiential learning. We encourage our students to be critical and creative thinkers, as well as active participants in their own education and school community. We prepare each of our students to become a global citizen who can shape the world.
Principal, Blyth Academy Etobicoke
What Makes Our Campus Unique?
We are a relationship-based community of teachers and learners; we are supportive of one-another and welcoming to all. Our students in grades 9 through 12 work together to continuously improve the Blyth Etobicoke experience for all. Our students are connected to the school not only through academics but also through extracurricular activities and school events, and they drive what happens here. The communities around our school – Swansea, Bloor West Village, Etobicoke, Toronto – play an integral part in shaping our school community. Whether we’re having a photography class on the banks of the Humber River, a phys ed class at High Park, or visiting a local business for our entrepreneurship class, we are connected to our community and our city through experiential learning.
Blyth Academy is a part of Globeducate's group-wide commitment to creating eco-friendly schools. All Blyth Academy campuses have achieved Certified Eco School status, and our Etobicoke campus has reached Gold Certification through initiatives supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
