Blyth Academy

Our school story begins in 1977, the year Blyth was founded. Blyth Academy was a pioneer in the early years of education and adventure travel. Amongst various educational firsts, was the establishment of a Canadian high school in France, the Lycée Canadien en France. As well as a university campus, the Universite Canadienne En France, and the first accredited high school program on the campus of Oxford University.

Blyth Academy is Canada’s leading private school by enrollment. With average class sizes of seven, individuated teaching and an experiential approach, Blyth Academy offers excellent university preparation. More than 98 per cent of our graduates attend the universities and colleges of their first choice. This year, students have received admissions offers from some of the top universities in the world including Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and MIT.

In the field of travel, Blyth Academy operated the first bike tour in the People’s Republic of China in 1979 as well as adult bike trips behind the Iron Curtain in the early 1980’s. High-latitude travel followed with icebreaker expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic. By 2000, we were the global leader in the field, opening up new areas to environmentally sensitive exploration.

In 2002, Blyth Academy opened its first high school in Canada on the third floor of a walk-up building in the heart of Toronto. With enrollment of 12 students and three classrooms, it was a modest but promising start. In 2005, a second school followed in Thornhill, and thereafter one or two schools each year. We now have 11 schools in Canada, as well as Blyth Academy Online and the Global High School. Blyth Academy International Summers is Canada’s largest provider of internationally accredited education. In 2015, more than 1200 students took part in 25 programs to more than 40 countries.
