Summer School

Summer School admissions for 2022 are now OPEN.

The Blyth Academy summer school program offers highly personalized and experiential learning. We give our students the opportunity to enhance their education with intensive, month-long high school courses in a wide array of subjects, including mathematics, science, english, and humanities. Choosing Blyth Academy for summer school allows students to benefit from our small class sizes and personalized approach, setting students up for a successful fall semester.

Summer School courses will be delivered both using our virtual classrooms with Blyth Academy Orbit, as well as in-person at select Blyth Academy campuses.

Blyth Academy campuses will consider applications from mature students (20 years +) to study in summer school programs, however, mature students must have an admissions interview with the campus before being enrolled in any course.

We strongly encourage students to register for Summer School no later than 3 weeks prior to the start of classes.

Blyth Academy offers Grade 10–12 courses with start dates in July and August. See below for course schedules.

In-Person Summer School

The Blyth Academy summer school program is back at select Blyth Academy campuses offering highly personalized and experiential learning. We give our students the opportunity to enhance their education with intensive, month-long high school courses in a wide array of subjects, including mathematics, science, English, and humanities.

Choosing Blyth Academy for summer school allows students to benefit from our small class sizes and personalized approach, setting students up for a successful fall semester.

Small Class Sizes

Our classes have an average size of 10 students. Educators can spend significant individualized time with each student while delivering a broad range of courses.

Virtual Summer School

Want to further your education remotely this summer while still being connected to classmates and a classroom experience? This summer, Blyth Academy is offering Virtual Summer School classes with Blyth Academy Orbit that mirror our regular in-class experience. What does that mean for students? They can now participate in daily virtual classes from home, the cottage, or anywhere there is Wi-Fi, at regularly scheduled times Monday to Friday. The classes, although virtual, allow students to visually and verbally partake in lessons led by a teacher, as well as contribute to class discussions and collaborate with peers in breakout groups online.

Similar to our academically rigorous in-class lessons, our virtual classes are structured with set start and end times, and deadlines are established for assignments, tests, and final exams. Classes are live and conducted through Zoom video chat using a shared screen. Our teachers plan and execute lessons using PowerPoint, videos and white boards in real-time, allowing for students to have their questions answered directly. Extra one-on-one support from teachers is available during virtual office hours, as well as through email and recorded tutorials. All classes are recorded and made available within our online portal, giving students the ability to reference lessons when preparing for assignments and assessments.
This year, enjoy your summer and earn a credit without the added commute. You can now log in to our virtual classroom to stay connected to peers and teachers wherever you may be. For more information, please call 416-960-3552. Click here to enrol in Summer School.

Student Engagement

We bring the curriculum to life with virtual field trips and designated time for socializing activities. Our "cameras on" policy for our virtual classrooms further maximizes student engagement and participation. Breakout rooms are commonly leveraged as a tool in our classes and help students discuss concepts in small groups which is vital to learning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How many students will be in the class?
A. Typically, classes will have between 6-16 students in them.

Q. What happens if not enough students are enrolled?
A. We require a minimum amount of students to be able to run a particular course. Our staff will contact families two weeks ahead of the start date to notify them if their course is at risk of being cancelled. If the course does not run due to low enrollment, registered students may choose to enrol in a private course, online course, switch campuses or request a full refund.

Q. Can I join a class that has already started?
A. This will be up to the discretion of the principal at each individual campus.

Q. How do my marks get put on my home school transcript?
A. We will send an official copy of your report card to your home school once it has been completed; they will put the completed course on your transcript for you.

Q. When will I find out who my teacher is and/or what textbook I need?
A. You will find out who your teacher is the first day of class. Textbook information will be provided a few days before your start date, and can be ordered very quickly through an in house service.

Q. Can I miss any classes?
A. Students may be able to miss some classes without their credit being in jeopardy. Speak to your teacher to make arrangements.

Q. What happens if a class is canceled due to a closure (i.e. power outage or inclement weather)?
A. Each situation will vary, but students will either be given coursework in lieu or a virtual class will be held.

Q. Can you guarantee my child will get a certain mark?
A. Students are given more attention than they would receive in their home schools, but this does not guarantee a passing grade. We cannot guarantee a grade but can promise that students will be shown the ways in which they can obtain their desired outcome in the course, if they apply themselves.
