With Us, It's Personal

There is no “one size fits all” curriculum at Canterbury - our faculty and staff get to know each student as an individual, helping them learn and grow based on their unique personality, strengths, and needs. Students have the opportunity to experience much more than academics — competitive sports, visual and performing arts, marine studies — to help them become well-rounded individuals.

"The teachers and staff are what make Canterbury such a wonderful environment for our boys. Having participated in the Parents Association board I can attest to the level of commitment and dedication demonstrated at every level. We have been very impressed and happy with our decision to have our boys attend Canterbury."
