Episcopal Identity

Chapel Services at Canterbury School

The Canterbury School of Florida is an independent school led by an autonomous Board of Trustees founded in the diversity and richness of the Episcopal Church.

Chapel services cultivate an environment where community members - including students, faculty, and special guests - gather to celebrate and reflect on values, traditions, historical events, and other principles founded in the fundamentals of an Episcopal education.

The Episcopal Tradition

Equity, Justice, and Stewardship

Today’s Episcopal schools are populated by a rich variety of students and faculty from increasingly diverse dimensions of identity and religious, cultural, and economic backgrounds.

Canterbury is a place that affirms these differences as sources of strength that build community, deepen our common humanity, and enhance the intellectual, social, spiritual, and moral development of all students.

Chapel

Canterbury fulfills two simultaneous commitments:

- To provide students an authentic experience of worship that is identifiably Episcopal

- To welcome, affirm, and support the spiritual development of students of all faiths or
no faith at all.
 
Chapel content coincides with our LEADS Program.

The Study of Religion

Comparative Religions is a required class as part of the Senior curriculum.

It is designed to be an objective and comparative approach to explore the history, traditions, and belief systems of the world’s major religions.

As a result, our students will be better informed and more empathetic as they step beyond our walls into the world.
