A STUDENT-CENTRED PRIVATE SCHOOL

Blyth Academy Orbit is our newest campus, which revolves around the same principles and academic structure as our physical schools, but it operates in the virtual space. Our signature small class sizes, personalized learning, and rigorous academics are all in effect at Blyth Academy Orbit, which opens up possibilities for students in Grades 7 to 12, near and far, to take part in our programming without the need to be present in our physical classrooms.
We are Ontario Ministry inspected and adhere to all provincial standards. BSID #665205

Attend Class from Anywhere

We conduct live, teacher-led classes through a video conferencing platform, and utilize a "cameras on" policy to maximize student engagement and participation. Attend classes with your classmates at regularly scheduled times during traditional school hours, with all of the benefits of our physical campuses from the comfort of home.

Small Class Sizes

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.

Robust University Preparation

Preparation for post-secondary education is the primary focus with increased attention on critical thinking, interpreting information, independent learning, and active participation in classes and activities. Our strong guidance department works with each student to define their pathway.

Term by Term Options

For high school we have four intake periods during our school year to make starting at Blyth Academy as flexible as possible (September, November, February, April). This is possible due to our quadmester structure (four terms) which allows for flexibility for students who want to try us out or who are looking for extra credits in a gap year. Elementary & middle school students can join at any time.

Extracurriculars & 'Field Trips'

Wellness Wednesdays

One of our popular extracurriculars is our Wellness Wednesdays. Students really enjoy having some time off from academics to focus on their mental and physical well-being.

These sessions coincide with our Health and Physical Education PLF4M class (Recreation and Healthy Active Living Leadership).

'Field Trip' Classes

Even in the virtual space we have the ability to bring our students into other learning environments through our various partners. For example students were very excited to be able to take a virtual Visual Arts (AVI4M) class from the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Our 'field trips' also provide post-secondary introductory classes from Universities like Queens' University, including classes in Anatomy and Food & Nutrition.

Student Showcase

Aubrey Nadler

Orbit Student

Aubrey has accomplished so much, and been an example to his colleagues, including through his active participation in Math Club. Aubrey succeeded brilliantly in Calculus & Vectors and Advanced Functions, and is currently studying Data Management with Mr Trochanowski.

This young man has been described as exhibiting "a knack for quickly coming up with insightful and efficient solutions to problems," and whose creative and insightful approach to mathematics inspired him to write the University of Waterloo's Senior Mathematics Contest, and next month, the Euclid Contest as well

-Mr Trochanowski

Aubrey's goal is to study mathematics at the University of Toronto St George campus, just around the corner from us - perhaps because, in Euclidean terms, it is the shortest distance between this school and his next one.

Join us for an info session

To learn more about our campus community, join us for an upcoming virtual open house. In these sessions we will talk about our academics, admissions process, clubs, extracurricular activities, and school community. There will also be an opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
