Our classes have an average size of 12 students, allowing teachers to spend significant individualized time with each student. There’s no “back row” in classrooms this small. Students are more comfortable speaking up in this environment.

We offer a comprehensive full-time program for Grades 9-12. Students studying with us for the full year benefit from our targeted programs for specific grades: the LaunchPad Program in Grades 9 & 10, and the Post-Secondary Preparation Program in Grades 11 & 12.
We have four intake periods during our school year to make starting at Blyth Academy as flexible as possible (September, November, February, April).

Jason started his journey with Blyth in Grade 8 (2019), reaching ahead with Blyth Academy Online. He believes in personalized learning experiences, especially collaborating in small groups where the teachers are approachable and enthusiastic about a high-achieving positive team effort. For this reason, he truly enjoys the learning community at Blyth London, his preferred school since 2020. Here, despite the struggles of lockdowns, extracurricular activities (safely done over Zoom) are keeping the school spirit alive. As a result, he feels connected to his school and that he is serving a purpose for his school community even while attending remotely this year.
While only in Grade 10, he was recently accepted into his first undergraduate university course at Harvard Summer School. He is looking forward to broadening his understanding of science. He is happy to further explore vibrant and resourceful learning environments, such as the one he has found at Blyth and the one he will be exploring internationally this summer at Harvard. He hopes to contribute his experiences to student council wishing to help students get excited about learning together the same way everybody gets excited about playing sports for a great team. He will be taking BIOS S-1B “Introduction to Organismic and Evolutionary Biology” (a university undergrad credit course). He was able to prepare thanks to the in-depth and university-relevant science education offered at Blyth.
We picked Blyth Academy because we did not want our child to be just a number like in the public school system. The staff is always approachable, emergencies are dealt with immediately and problems are discussed and solved quickly for the benefit of the student, not for the convenience of the teacher. Ideal for children with a unique learning approach, the small classes make it possible to get individual attention whenever necessary. Blyth has made all the difference for our son, who finally finds school interesting!Schotter Family
We are thrilled with our experience at Blyth Academy London. The classes are small and the teachers inspired our son to learn and to work hard. It was obvious to us as parents that the teachers took the time to get to know our son and to bring out his potential in a way that had not been done before. The leadership is excellent and responsive and we especially appreciated the patient and thorough guidance.Steve & Sondy Taran, Parents
Blyth has a nurturing, safe environment of devoted staff and teachers who have encouraged our son to grow and reach his full potential in his high school years. The teachers keep the small classes engaged and our son wanting to learn and produce his best work. Blyth has become an extension of our family for our son. We give a 5-star rating to Blyth Academy.Joan & Clay Grandy, Parents
