WELCOME INternational Students


With a nearly century-long tradition of bringing together students from all over the world, Canterbury School remains dedicated to welcoming international students to our campus as we learn from each other's cultures and traditions.

Canterbury School encourages community integration to ensure that every student has the experience they are seeking. Currently, of Canterbury School's 325 students, 15% hail from 19 different countries. These students play an integral part in the makeup of our community, contributing to all aspects of campus life as leaders in the classroom and dorms as well as on the athletic fields, the stage, and in the art rooms and music studios around campus.

Canterbury School invites students from all over the world to submit an application. If English is not the student's first language, the TOEFL test (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the Duolingo test is required in addition to the other components of the application.

We can't wait to meet you! 

Please contact the Admission Office at or 860-210-3832 to set up your campus visit or Zoom interview.

Due to the high number of applications, we have partnered with Vericant to provide an in-person interview opportunity for all Chinese applicants interested in Canterbury School. Vericant will conduct interviews and short writing samples with our applicants and the videos will be reviewed as a component of the application.
