Description

Founded in 1915 and guided by our Catholic heritage, Canterbury is an independent college preparatory, coeducational boarding and day school for students in grades 9–12. The School prides itself on creating a community based on its Five Values — Honesty, Respect, Compassion, Spirituality, and Self-Reliance — in which students and faculty forge lasting bonds and every student experiences a broad and challenging program in a small school setting. The School’s educational environment fosters academic rigor, athletic development, artistic enrichment and spiritual growth and strives to ensure a superior experience that prepares students for leading colleges and universities and for life. Canterbury sees all students as individuals, encourages them as necessary, challenges them as appropriate, and inspires them to be moral leaders in a complex, secular world.

Unique Characteristics

Steers Center: Opened in November 2020, the Steers Center is a new, 22,000-square-foot facility that expands Canterbury’s innovation and digital literacy curricula, inspires students’ growth as ethical and servant leaders in a complex world, and provides a central gathering place for our entire community to be together. It is an extraordinary space where all aspects of the Canterbury School mission converge.
