Saints on the Hill

Strengthening Bonds Through Sharing

Saints on the Hill gives members of the Canterbury community a safe, supportive forum to tell their stories, share their experiences, and express their feelings.

“Saints on the Hill is a wrecking ball meant to break down those walls of assumption we have towards each other, a key that unlocks the true stories hidden on campus, a foundation for new friendships, a glimpse into the lives of those around you, and the nourishment needed for our community to grow. I can’t think of anywhere else where a student would feel comfortable enough to stand up in front of all of their classmates and tell part of their story… or a student body that would receive their story with such care and respect! It’s not easy to be vulnerable, especially with your entire high school looking at you—but Saints on the Hill truly shows the type of community we have on campus.”

Share your story

Held in Maguire Auditorium during School Meeting, the program allows students—and sometimes faculty, staff, even alumni "Saints Off the Hill"—to reveal things about themselves that their peers might not have known and, in highlighting differences, find similarities. The audience is able to resonate, laugh, and come away feeling like we all know each other just a little bit better. Students have shared stories from the impact of the Lourdes trip to overcoming athletic injury to personal challenges growing up.
