A Typical Day On A Blyth Academy March Break Program

A typical program day on our Community Service Programs is an invigorating mix of rewarding community service activities and organized recreation, allowing you to develop your leadership skills and have fun too. Community Service activities generally take place the majority of the week for alternating full days or half-days with local excursions organized for when the students are not volunteering. Each student will receive a letter detailing the community involvement hours and activities that can be added to their secondary school diploma. If you have any questions regarding these programs, please email admissions@blytheducation.com.

All of our students are between 15 and 19 years old. They come from public, separate, and private schools across Canada, the United States, and beyond. They bring a wonderful mix of ethnic, religious, and social backgrounds to our programs.


Curfew is set at 11:00 p.m. from Sunday through Thursday and 12:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Program staff ensure that sign-in and sign-out procedures are carefully explained and adhered to. Overnight stays away from the program are not permitted. There are no exceptions.


Breakfast and dinner will be provided daily, but part of the fun and immersion of your program will involve exploring local gastronomy. Program staff are on hand to help you with restaurant recommendations for lunches.


Our programs offer many included field trips and excursions.


Blyth Academy chooses accommodation that maintains a balance of proximity to sites, public transit, and comfort. Blyth Academy uses hotel accommodation for the majority of our programs. Certain programs also stay in student residences within local universities. Some hotels have pools. Most hotels have WiFi access in common areas such as lobbies and restaurants. Some hotels have WiFi or cable Internet within the rooms. Air-conditioned rooms will be provided, where available. Students will stay in single, twin, triple, or quad rooms depending on the locations. The majority of our hotels have been used by Blyth Academy for many years, and hotel staff are very accommodating.
