Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Blyth Academy is known for our small class sizes and personalized approach to learning. We have a vibrant international student community at our Academies and we are always looking to diversify this community. Our school year is divided into four terms, which gives international students four opportunities to commence their studies.

Teaching approach of the school

Blyth Academy tailors the program to the individual student. Taking into account each international student’s learning style and extra-curricular responsibilities; we are able to customize a plan unique to the individual that allows each international student to reach their potential. 50% of our international students return to Blyth Academy for a second year of study. Blyth Academy’s unique experiential learning environment is one of the key pillars of our success. Experiential learning encourages students to be enthusiastic and engaged in their learning process. It brings the classroom to life, and takes the students outside the traditional classroom setting to participate in hands-on learning. Our international students love Blyth and keep coming back for more every year!
