On a hill above the town of New Milford, our 150 acre campus is an inspiring setting. Our location, combined with outstanding academic, athletic and the art facilities, creates the perfect environment to form lasting friendships, develop your talents, grow as a student, and deepen your knowledge of self.
This is an environment where faculty and students create a warm and welcoming atmosphere based on our Five Values of Respect, Compassion, Self-Reliance, Honesty, and Spirituality. Classes and athletics are the core of a Canterbury experience, but there are many other activities and aspects of life on the hill that make students' days full and satisfying.
Our residential faculty foster a home-like atmosphere within the dormitories, providing support and fun activities. There are many opportunities to become involved in student activities from working on student publications to being part of the theater tech crew to becoming active in community service or Campus Ministry. Students have been profoundly affected by participating in service trips to Nicaragua or Lourdes, and the Emmaus and Form Retreats offer peaceful oases amidst busy days.
Day students may spend as much time on campus as they wish. They may eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the School, and may spend an occasional night in the dorm. Day students are active participants in campus organizations and weekend activities.
In every aspect of community life, the relationships students form with each other and with faculty make the entire Canterbury experience uniquely meaningful and memorable.
The community service opportunities at Canterbury are such a natural part of our school. It's awesome to see our teachers and faculty so passionate about volunteering and the feeling is contagious. My favorite community service experiences have been sibling shopping, helping with the youth hockey program, and working with Fabretto schools in Nicaragua. --Sarah. Wilton, CT
My involvement with the yearbook during my Canterbury career has had a signficant impact on my life as a student. I have discovered my creative passions and progressed to the leadership position of editor-in-chief for my Sixth Form year. --Morgan. Ridgefield, CT
