Online Admissions Process
Our admissions process varies for students in our full-time & part-time programs. Full-time programs include both our full-year and term-by-term study options at Blyth Academy Orbit and Blyth Academy Online. Part-time programs with Blyth Academy Orbit include our virtual summer school, night school, and private courses. For Blyth Academy Online, part-time study refers to students taking one or more courses with Blyth Academy Online, while maintaining active status at their home school.
The admissions process for international students differs slightly due to study visa requirements. For extended details go to our International Student Application & Admissions page. (A domestic student is defined as a student who is a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident.)
