At Canterbury, I love the push for student involvement. I don’t know a single student who is not on a sports team or a part of a club because there is a large emphasis placed on creating not only a well rounded student, but also a well rounded person.

What makes Canterbury a unique school is the connection that students have with teachers. Teachers aren’t just available for class time, but also after school and via email or phone call at any point during the day.

In addition, there has been a huge push towards diversity and understanding the world and the way it functions outside of the student demographic. Since I have been a freshmen, we have started Courageous Conversations and a Diversity Summit.

I would highly recommend Canterbury to anyone who wants a fast paced competitive environment that will prepare them for college like no other school will. I have loved my time there. And would not dream of choosing another school.

Amazing, academically challenging, diverse, and a welcoming private school. I have been going to this school since the second grade, and I have made life long friends. The teachers, students, and directors are all extremely friendly and helpful. This is a school where you will know everyone's names, and they will know yours. You will have a relationship with the teachers. It is academically challenging, and ultimately the hardest school in all of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Canterbury pushes their students to be the best they can be.
Canterbury School is the perfect environment where ambitious students can thrive. The faculty are dedicated and committed to helping every student succeed, and the academics are overall outstanding when it comes to preparing for college. Although the curriculum at Canterbury is certainly challenging, there is a collaborative atmosphere at the school, which I respect very much.
