EXPLANATION OF FEES

Blyth Academy makes registration easy and worry-free, allowing you to register for your program with a full refund available (including registration fee, deposit, program fee and any applicable taxes) up to and including January 1, 2020.

What is the registration fee?

The registration fee ($195 for March Break and Summer Programs) is payable upon registration and confirms your place into the Blyth Academy program of your choice. It covers the administration costs required to enrol you at Blyth Academy.

What is the deposit?

The deposit is a fee of $895 that is used to hold a spot on the program of your choice in your name.

What is the program fee?

The program fee is the cost of the program of your choice. It does not include the registration fee or any departure taxes or fees.

What are departure taxes and fees?

Blyth Academy works with many different airlines, hotels, airport transfer companies, and vendors to ensure that your program runs smoothly. Each service levies its own departure taxes or fees that are not included in your program fee. We work hard to estimate these fees, and ensure that you are aware of this estimate before you purchase a Blyth Academy March Break or International Summers program. The estimated departure taxes and fees for your program can be found on each program page of our website as well as within our brochure.

As soon as these fees are confirmed by our airlines, hotels, and vendors, you will be notified of the final departure taxes and fees due. These departure taxes and fees will be billed to the credit card on record, or an invoice will be mailed to the address on file for payment by cheque in December 2019 (for March Break programs) or March 2020 (for Summer programs).

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.
