Welcome to the Steers Center

A Place Where Innovative Learning, Values, and Community Come Together

In November 2020, Canterbury School celebrated the opening of its new Steers Center.

The stunning 22,000 square-foot building set on our 150-acre campus is emblematic to the School’s core mission of developing critical thinkers and ethical leaders in an increasingly complex world. The Steers Center is a truly unique blend of carefully planned spaces that not only supports our students’ intellectual and social development but also inspires their growth as individuals.

Inside, you’ll find our new Innovation & Design and Digital Media Labs, spaces that allows our students to develop critical analysis, design-thinking and digital competencies, which we know are essential for success in college and life beyond. On the floor above, you’ll find our D’Amour Center for Faith, Service and Justice, which serves as the central hub for all of our community service, social justice advocacy, student retreats, and leadership programming. Finally, the Steers Center has a welcoming student center – the Commons – and café. We love seeing how our whole community comes together in this new space.
