Living and Learning
Both boarders and day students think of Canterbury not just as a school, but a home away from home.
ASK STUDENTS WHY THEY CHOSE CANTERBURY, AND THEIR ANSWER ALMOST ALWAYS STARTS WITH THE PEOPLE. From your first visit to campus, you sense how warm and welcoming Canterbury is. As you get to know students and teachers better, you find they are genuine, open, and down-to-earth. In part, the close connections come from our small size. As you walk across campus, you will know just about every student you see. You will know your teachers, too—and their kids and dogs! You may end up babysitting for one of them at some point. Most important, you will find you are surrounded by people who care about you: teachers, advisors, coaches, dorm parents, and friends.
The community service opportunities at Canterbury are such a natural part of our school. It's awesome to see our teachers and faculty so passionate about volunteering and the feeling is contagious. My favorite community service experiences have been sibling shopping, helping with the youth hockey program, and working with Fabretto schools in Nicaragua. -Sarah. Wilton, CT
My involvement with the yearbook during my Canterbury career has had a significant impact on my life as a student. I have discovered my creative passions and progressed to the leadership position of editor-in-chief for my Sixth Form year. -Morgan. Ridgefield, CT
