Meet our students

Every Canterbury student arrives on our hilltop with a story all their own. They are a remarkable blend of different backgrounds, interests, and ambitions, but they also have a lot in common.

If any of these sound like you, then you're already one of us.

Leaders and Team Players

At Canterbury, students like you step in and step up, leading the charge in many school activities. But while they're at the forefront, they also understand that real leadership is about collaboration and lifting up those around them. 

The warm and welcoming Admission team made our family feel like a part of the hilltop community from the first moment we stepped on campus. They demonstrated such care and patience as they helped our family navigate the application process.  But this experience didn't end here; it has characterized our daughter's entire life at Canterbury.
