Dear Prospective Students and Parents, Welcome to Blyth Academy’s Whitby campus! I would personally like to extend a warm welcome to you and your parents, and invite you to come visit us in the near future. Our school is an outstanding educational environment whose faculty is committed to providing an integrated university preparatory education in a warm and caring setting. Our students are encouraged to do their best and are given the necessary support to help them in their studies and beyond. Our teachers are dedicated to ensuring that students gain a complete understanding of the subject matter while making engaging connections outside the classroom and to other disciplines. Our classes are very small and communication between teachers and students is consistent, encouraging and frequent. Our goal is student-centred learning catering to each student’s unique learning style where the teachers act as guides along the journey with the help of our educational partnerships. At the heart of Blyth Academy Whitby, we are interested in getting to know who you are and how you see the world. We enjoy supporting our students as they grow with us and on to post-secondary education through dedicated guidance support from day one, experiential learning in every course and personalized attention for every student. Our central location in Durham Region allows us to integrate our educational partners on a regular basis into the classroom curriculum. From trips to study Shakespeare at the Royal Ontario Museum, study Social Justice at the Station Gallery, sit in on a university math lecture at UOIT or study how the human body works at Outward Bound, we take learning out of the classroom literally! We welcome your interest as a potential member of our unique community and encourage you to visit us on campus to discover more about your own future as a Blyth student.
