“As a Canterbury parent, I’m confident when I drop my daughter off each morning that she is walking into an environment of amazing educators who genuinely care about her personal and academic development. Knowing that the person most important to me in the world is getting the space and guidance to be the best version of herself is a privilege for which I am thankful daily.”
-- Rhonda K., middle school parent

We’re delighted that you are considering Canterbury as your and your child’s academic home. As you learn more about us, you’ll see that 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.
We are committed to educating intellectually adventurous thinkers and courageous, compassionate leaders. 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.
We hope you will visit our two campuses just a few miles apart in St. Petersburg. Our Hough Campus on Snell Isle is home to students in PK3 (3-year-olds) through Grade 4. The Knowlton Campus in Shore Acres is home to students in Grades 5-12.
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!"
