I am writing to share some personal news today. After just over ten years as the (very!) proud Founding Principal of Blyth Academy Lawrence Park, I will be moving on at the end of Term 3 to start a new adventure.
About Our Campus
Blyth Academy Lawrence Park
Blyth Academy Lawrence Park is a private high school that has been wonderfully embraced by its families and neighbours since opening in 2010. Active in and outside of class, Blyth Academy Lawrence Park hosts several signature events including a city-wide Triathlon, a very popular Music, Art and Drama night, and works closely with nearby partners including Anytime Fitness, the Freehand School of Art, The Teddington Retirement Residence, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award program and more. Students attending this school will quickly feel known and a part of something warm and positive. We are also a quick walk to Eglinton Park and all of its amenities.
Our school has an average class size of 12 which allows our educators to spend significant individualized time with each student while delivering a broad range of courses. When combined with first-class care, great teaching and exceptional guidance, wonderful things happen, and our students flourish.
- Grades 9 - 12
- Average class size of 12

Message From the Principal
At Blyth Academy, we know our students. With an average class size of 12, and youthful, engaging teachers who motivate and inspire, the roles of student and teacher are as collaborative partners in discussion or exploration. It is an entirely different model than one in which the teacher teaches and students are left to find ways to engage. Our young learners are active and acquiring knowledge themselves; very much empowered in understanding the ‘how’ and ‘why’ over the ‘what’ of education.
Our space is fresh and intimate, and our student body is active in building our own colourful range of club, team, and leadership opportunities. Come and ask the tough questions — our doors are open, we’re proud of what we have built, and prouder still to have a mix of students with varied pursuits and passions who are ‘together’ here and happy.
Principal, Blyth Academy Lawrence Park
What Makes Our Campus Unique?
Our campus student life is very active. We have access to local facilities where experiential learning takes places outside the classroom. Our art classes all take place in a professional art studio. We have access to a fitness facility across the street for all full-time students. There are also great healthy lunch options just outside our door!
At our campus, students get a personalized experience. Your child will feel known, liked, and ultimately intelligent and worthy. We make school less overwhelming and more engaging without compromising academic integrity. Small classes engender accountability—exactly what is needed for post-secondary education.
