English Department

In Canterbury's English classes, students explore and exchange ideas while developing critical thinking, communication, and writing skills they will need to thrive in college and beyond. A Canterbury graduate will enter the world with a thoughtful and worldly perspective gained from reading a diverse group of texts and engaging in thoughtful conversations about real world issues. 

English courses are listed below; please download the Academic Guide for a complete list of our course offerings.


Fifth and Sixth Formers, except students in Honors Race Theory, AP Language and AP Literature, select two semester-long English electives.
