From Canterbury School

To experience Canterbury is to appreciate inspiring teachers, coaches, and mentors rigorously preparing students for a world of unlimited possibilities. The foundation of our school is based on four tenets: academics, leadership, character, and service. These tenets work in conjunction with key aspects that create a great “prep” school –a strong honor code, exceptional academics, a wide range of co-curricular opportunities, and meaningful relationships. Each year Canterbury’s SAT and ACT scores far surpass local, state, and national results. Canterbury students are a sure bet among colleges and universities.

Working together in a resilient community, Canterbury prepares students to meet challenges with confidence, knowledge, integrity, courage, and responsibility. This powerful combination provides the foundation for your child’s success in learning and in life. There is no doubt that this is one of the true values and lifelong returns of Canterbury’s independent school education.
