About Our Campus

Blyth Academy The Glebe

Blyth Academy The Glebe is a flourishing private high school conveniently located in Lansdowne Park, on Bank Street surrounded by modern amenities, 40-acres of urban park, including the Rideau Canal, and vibrant all-ages entertainment complex. Steps away is the TD Place Stadium and Arena complex where our student-athletes from the Ottawa 67’s practice and compete.

Our Ottawa campus is a school of 135 students. This allows us to be personally in touch with every individual, yet large enough to offer a broad range of courses. Our experienced guidance counsellors work regularly with each student to prepare them for post-secondary and beyond.

 When combined with first-class care and supportive, expert teaching, wonderful things happen and our students flourish.
 

  • Grades 9 - 12
  • Average class size of 12
  • 15 bright contemporary classrooms
  • Student commons with kitchenette
  • State of the art science lab

Message From the Principal

At Blyth Academy The Glebe, we take pride in our watching our students thrive. Our team of teachers and Guidance Counsellors are experts at thinking outside of the box, delivering enriching and engaging content, and helping students connect the curriculum to real-life. We develop accommodating schedules and deliver outstanding educational opportunities that take full advantage of the unique location of our school and the partnerships that we have forged in our neighbourhood.

With all of this, we aim to not only prepare our students for the challenges of post-secondary education but for life. I invite you to come in and experience our relaxed, engaging environment and discuss with me or one of our guidance counsellors how we can help your child thrive.

What Makes Our Campus Unique?

Blyth Academy The Glebe follows the Ministry curriculum guidelines, with the advantage of small class sizes and experiential learning, connecting the curriculum to real-life. Beginning in Grade 9, students benefit from four terms per year, with two subjects per term. Grades 9 and 10 students focus on two academic subjects in the morning, followed by a very active LaunchPad Program to build study and life skills. At our new The Glebe campus, students focus on two subjects per term, allowing for high levels of flexibility in scheduling. Individualized guidance support begins at Grade 9. In addition, our flexible academic schedule makes us the preferred school for many elite athletes in the Ottawa area.


 

Teacher Spotlight

Pavel Boudreau

It is no wonder that Blyth Academy The Glebe science teacher, Mr. Boudreau’s, earliest influence was Bill Nye the Science Guy. Much like the beloved tv scientist, Mr. Boudreau is passionate about, well, science. With a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience he is qualified in biology, chemistry, physics, and math and he brings the same amount of enthusiasm to each high school subject. 

Q. What is most rewarding about being a teacher?
I had a former Blyth Academy high school graduate come back to the school for a visit and I asked how her science courses were going in university. She said “It has been two months, and they have not taught me anything you did not already cover in some way. I feel great.” It was nice to know that I had helped make her transition to post-secondary easier.”
