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.

"As soon as we walked onto the Canterbury campus for the first time, we felt like we had come home and were apart of a family. We were impressed by Canterbury's exceptional academics, small class sizes, character education curriculum, and unique learning opportunities for our children which were not offered at other private schools."
