Tuition & Financial Aid

An Investment with Lifelong Value

The choice to send your child to boarding school is an extraordinary act of love and generosity and an invaluable gift to your child's future. We are honored that Canterbury is among the schools your family is considering.

Financial Aid

We know paying for an independent school education is a significant commitment for families. Canterbury is committed to enrolling qualified candidates from all socioeconomic backgrounds and accordingly offers a strong financial aid program based on each family’s demonstrated need. This past year, $5.6 million in aid was awarded.

Financial Aid applications will not affect admission decisions; they are considered separately. Financial aid is awarded only to students who have completed the Admission Office application process and have been officially accepted. 

We cannot say enough about the Canterbury School experience and how well it prepared our daughter, academically and socially, to face the challenges of college and adulthood. It was truly an investment we will never forget.
