Student Activities

Student's days at Canterbury are filled with academics and athletics, but students also pursue their own interests in a wide variety of clubs, activities, and community service. In addition to long established clubs and activities, motivated students have started their own club with the help of faculty advisors, and several student-initiated clubs have become hallmarks of the Canterbury experience.

Big Brother/Big Sister

This program matches new students with returning Fifth and Sixth Form students to make the transition to Canterbury more comfortable. Communication is established during the summer and continues into orientation week, often leading to enduring relationships between new and returning students.

Student Publications

Several student publications offer an opportunity to gain experience in layout, graphic design, photography, writing, and business. The Cantuarian is Canterbury’s yearbook. The Carillon, the school’s literary magazine, is a collection of student poetry, short stories, essays, artwork, and photography. The Tabard is the school newspaper.

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
