Blyth Academy Orbit
Teacher-Led Virtual Classrooms
Blyth Academy Orbit revolves around the same principles and academic structure as our physical schools, but 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 9 to 12, near and far, to take part in our programming without the need to be present in our physical classrooms.
Blyth Academy Orbit Benefits
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.
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.
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.
Blyth Academy Orbit Programs
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 years: the LaunchPad Program in Grades 9 & 10, and the Post-Secondary Preparation Program in Grades 11 & 12.
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.
Night School allows students to maintain their home school while benefitting from our small class sizes and personalized approach.
Summer School offers highly personalized and experiential learning that enhances student's education and sets them up for a successful fall semester.
Private Studies provide students in Grades 9 – 12 with a one-on-one learning experience in which teachers tailor the lessons to the needs and schedule of the individual student.
