Blyth Academy Community Service Programs

Blyth Academy’s 16-day program, offered through meaningful, locally driven community initiatives, teaches the kind of lessons that create true global citizens.

Our International Community Service program offers students the opportunity to become engaged in communities abroad by volunteering their time to work on meaningful locally driven initiatives. This allows them to learn first-hand about the world around them while developing their leadership and team-building capabilities—and having fun, too!

Our community service work is carried out in collaboration with locally based NGOs, and our agenda is driven by these local organizations. We ask our partners how and where we can be useful so that the work we do is relevant and meaningful to the communities in which we are based.

Each student will receive a letter detailing the community involvement hours and activities that can be added to their secondary school diploma. We are currently offering programs to Costa Rica this summer and programs to Costa Rica and Peru over March break. Take a look at our programs below, and if you have any questions please email

The safety of our students is Blyth Academy’s number one priority. Over our 40 years of taking students abroad, we have been diligent about monitoring social, political, and environmental conditions to ensure that we are providing a safe travel experience. As a matter of protocol, we refer to the Canadian Government’s travel advisories and other public health agencies in the countries we visit and we alter itineraries based on safety when necessary.

At this time, we have not made changes to any of our itineraries for July or August 2020. We will continue to monitor this situation over the coming weeks and will assess each city and country we visit on our programs. If revisions are made we will promptly communicate the changes to parents, guardians and students.

For more information, please contact our admissions team.

Thank you,

Blyth Academy International

Effective March 17, 2020, Blyth Academy will be a remote organization in hopes of doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We will be receiving all emails, phone calls, and voicemails and are dedicated to maintaining business as usual. Thank you for your continued support!

Though our doors are temporarily closed, the minds of our students will remain open. Our students will continue their academic journey through virtual classrooms, to ensure our students don’t miss out on valuable curriculum hours. Our small class sizes and individualized approach will continue in a virtual model, as will the structure that students need to be engaged and successful during the closure.
