New Private High School Opens on Capitol Hill


Small class sizes, experiential learning, and individualized instruction...welcome to Blyth-Templeton Academy, the Hill’s first private high school.


Blyth-Templeton is a partnership between Blyth Academy, founded in 1977 with 12 schools in Canada and international programs in 32 countries, and Templeton Learning, founded by a group responsible for Keller Graduate School of Management and DeVry Education Group. Blyth-Templeton offers a college-preparatory, non-sectarian, co-educational learning experience for students in grades 9-12.


Testimonials on the Blyth-Templeton Website offer a glimpse at the enthusiastic learners that grace the halls of the Blyth schools in other areas. The narratives provide a sense of the close-knit community and personalized attention that can be achieved when the average class size is eight. To date, all of the school’s physical locations are in Canada, but Lee Palmer, head of school at the Hill campus notes that the intention is to expand to multiple locations throughout the District and close-in suburbs.


“Our educational model relies on resources within the community,” explains Palmer. “DC is an excellent new home for us because our students have access to resources such as museums and organizations that support our goals of creating local leaders and global citizens.”


Blyth-Templeton opened its doors with students in all four grades on September 8th. Its home is at the Hill Center, where they hope to grow to full enrollment of 100 students very soon. Tuition rates are just under $15,000 per year for full-time, and the school offers part-time, online learning, and summer programs. Financial aid and scholarships are available.
