Blyth Academy: Canada’s #1 Private High School (Huffington Post)
A prevalent and consistent theme parents will discover during their necessary and industrious investigations of education options for their children is worldwide integration. The focus of contemporary and advanced institutions of learning school their pedagogy not just in elements of the “global classroom” but also the importance of recognizing globalization within syllabi, curricula, cohorts, and environments. Few institutions identify and adhere to this reality like Blyth Academy.
Blyth Academy – now nearly 40 years old – is one of the world’s foremost private schools. Since establishing itself in Canada nearly twenty years ago, the institution offers global immersion and ambitious learning to students from grades 5 to 12, with “access to personalized academic programs found nowhere else.” Not only does Blyth offer and international focus, but international options as well. The school is embedded in the global fibre of adolescent education, and boasts “14 Ontario campuses as well as schools in Florence and Qatar, plus Blyth Academy Online and Blyth Academy Global High School to choose from, your child will enjoy a nurturing and experiential education delivered by empathetic teachers in boutique settings, with average class sizes of seven.”
Being active globally is not the same as being relevant or informed globally. Blyth is not only internationally aligned and inspired, but honoured as well. While being celebrated as Canada’s best private high school, the Huffington Post noted: “For students seeking post-secondary studies, 98 percent of its students land acceptances to their first-choice post- secondary institutions (including Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, and MIT). This statistic is unheard of at the global level, let alone in Canada.”
But internationally celebrated publications aren’t the only ones impressed with Blyth. Most importantly, parents of recent graduates feted their child’s experience (and theirs) beyond the global, beyond aspirations of postsecondary success, and distant careers, in professing that, “We picked Blyth Academy because we did not want our child to be a just a number like in the public school system. The staff is always approachable, emergencies are dealt with immediately and problems are discussed and solved quickly for the benefit of the student, not for the convenience of the teacher. Ideal for children with a unique learning approach, the small classes make it possible to get individual attention whenever necessary. Blyth Academy has made all the difference for our son, who finally finds school interesting!”
