Welcome to Canterbury!


Canterbury is more than a school. It’s a community where academic achievement goes hand in hand with becoming a person of character. It’s a place where students discover how to become the best version of themselves and responsible stewards of our world. It’s a family committed to educating adventurous thinkers, courageous leaders, and compassionate citizens.

We look forward to showing you our approach to doing that; and, most importantly, introducing you to our students, who will give you the best insight into what our school is about.

Can a school change who you are, alter your life's path, and open your global perspective? Can teachers build on your strengths and push you to become the best version of yourself? Ask Crusaders past and present, and they'll tell you, "Absolutely!"
