The Canadian School of Florence, formerly known as Blyth Academy of Florence, is an international school that promotes global education in an international environment.

Our school community celebrated the start of the new school year at our Welcome Back Cocktail on Wednesday 9 October. Head of School, Gary O'Meara, and Chief Education Officer at NACE Schools, Daniel Jones, presented our new brand and talked about the future of the Canadian School of Florence.  

We combine the best of Canadian, Italian, and International educational practices and standards, preparing our students to be happy and successful citizens of the global world.

The Canadian School of Florence is a close-knit, educational community that prepares our students for university as life-long learners, critical thinkers and engaged citizens. Our integrated Preschool–12 environment promotes excellence, trust, integrity, fairness, and compassion through a proven academic program, small class sizes, and an inclusive approach to extra-curricular activities.
