Canterbury is a college preparatory, coeducational boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12 founded in 1915. Grounded in our Catholic heritage and welcoming students of all faiths, we believe that spiritual growth is an important part of a complete education and one of the best ways to put our beliefs into action is through service to others. Inspiring all we do at Canterbury is a set of five core values: honesty, respect, compassion, spirituality, and selfreliance.
At Canterbury, students encounter a wide range of opportunities within a small and welcoming community. The School’s educational environment fosters academic rigor, athletic development, artistic enrichment, and spiritual growth, ensuring a superior experience that prepares students for leading colleges and universities.
Our students are supported, self-aware and balanced, and have a true sense of what matters to them. Placing values and service at the center of what they do, students leave Canterbury grounded and well-adjusted.
