This is your school. This is your journey.

This is the extraordinary opportunity your story deserves.


At Canterbury, students embark on a transformational, personal journey, where the combination of ambitious academics, purposeful growth, and active community engagement leads to a future greater than you ever thought possible. 

An Education that's personal

No two Canterbury educations are the same, because no two students are alike. Here, every class you take doesn’t just check a box; it is part of a learning journey that is uniquely yours and opens a door to your incredible potential.

Broad, Dynamic Curriculum

We offer a remarkable range of courses to build the strong foundation that top colleges seek while giving you the freedom to explore your intellectual passions—even ones you haven’t discovered yet.

Challenge and Support

Here, academic rigor is more than just tough courses. It's about challenging you to stretch yourself while supporting you at every step to ensure you reach—and exceed—your highest potential.

Tradition and Innovation

The learning you do today is for a future we can’t even imagine. Our program blends tradition and innovation, so you master the ability to communicate effectively along with critical and creative thinking and digital literacy skills.

Adults in Your Corner

You are surrounded by a team of adults—ever-present teachers, advisors, coaches, and dorm parents—who see you as the multi-dimensional person you are and believe in everything you want to become.

A Path to Purpose

Your purpose here goes beyond the amazing things you achieve. It’s also about diving deep into self-discovery, valuing the differences of others, and believing that you can—and will—make a difference in the world. 


Explore the role of faith in your life and the lives of others within an inclusive, interfaith community.


Develop empathy, leadership, and a sense of civic responsibility by giving generously of yourself for others.


Empower yourself to challenge inequalities, foster inclusivity, and advocate for meaningful change.

A Culture of Community

From the moment you join our intentionally small school, you experience a connection with peers and faculty, a curiosity about the things that make us different, and comfort in a community that celebrates you as an individual and bonds together like a family.

Where your Journey Leads
