College Counseling

Strong and Self-Reliant

Canterbury provides its students with an outstanding preparation for success in higher education.  This means giving students the academic foundation to meet the challenges they will face at some of the nation’s most selective universities. It also means supporting students with a personalized process of college advising that helps each find a college or university that represents an excellent personal fit. However, this is all just one part of a Canterbury education. At Canterbury, a combination of positive forces comes together to help you experience personal growth in a remarkable way. You will see the result in the form of the confidence, independence, and self-reliance you will gain here. Canterbury graduates are not just ready for college, they are ready for life.

  • College counseling at Canterbury combines experienced counselors, a strong individual focus, and persistent attention to detail.
  • Starting in Fifth Form (11th Grade), students meet each week in small groups and individually with their college counselors.



We are proud of our strong record for placing Canterbury Graduates in outstanding colleges and universities. Here is a sampling of schools where our graduates have recently matriculated.


Welcome from the Director of College Counseling

Step by step, from the initial college search to the taking of standardized tests, writing of the application essay and the final college choice, our Fifth and Sixth Formers enjoy the benefit of having a seasoned team of college counselors on their side. Our understanding of each student’s college goals, coupled with sage advice and attention to detail, ensure a successful and timely process.

At Canterbury, we pride ourselves on the individual attention each student and family receives. We feel strongly about helping students find the right fit for college and creating a supportive and informative environment for the college search and application process.
