Blyth Academy at CIHA

Blyth Academy offers a private-school education focused on personalized and experiential learning. Their approach fully engages students in the academic process with a learning experience founded on curiosity, creativity and innovative thinking.

This cutting-edge program ensures that students stay on top of their studies and helps them to achieve their full potential, in and out of the classroom.

At Blyth Academy, every student is involved in classroom discussion and receives close attention from the teacher. This approach fosters an atmosphere of active participation by the entire class every day. Teachers teach the student, not just the curriculum. 

Blyth Academy tailors the curriculum to the student—not the other way around. Taking into account each student’s learning style and extracurricular responsibilities, Blyth Academy can customize a plan that is unique to the individual student.
