The Canterbury School is dedicated to academic excellence within a caring and supportive community emphasizing character, leadership, and service.
Our Leadership & Vision
Canterbury’s history is rich in leadership and vision by those who have come before us as donors, visionaries, and volunteers. Together they have set the course for what Canterbury is today, a well-respected educational institution producing students who are prepared for success in college and beyond.
For more than five decades, Canterbury School has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to academic excellence, preparing students to excel in the world. From its first faculty member in 1964, Canterbury’s outstanding faculty has nurtured the individual potential in each student. They challenge, support, and recognize the individual learning journey of a diverse student body.
Today’s mission of academic excellence, leadership, character, and service are evident by the contributions of more than 1000 Canterbury alumni all over the world. Our work continues to honor our rich history while envisioning our next 50 years of service.
