Canterbury School is proud to present the Leadership Institute for Tomorrow or LIFT. This school-wide initiative aims to integrate leadership learning into the academic education and everyday classroom experience for all of our students. The goal of LIFT is to equip our students with the real-world leadership skills they need to succeed in the future.

LIFT helps our students discover their leadership potential through a variety of opportunities provided by our Canterbury community. Through our LIFT Lecture Series, our students have been able to engage with dozens of different great leaders and experts in their fields.
