All students are required to obtain one credit in Physical and Health Education during their high school years. There are two ways to fulfill this requirement. Students can take 1 credit of Personal Fitness and Health or they can enroll in the 1 credit HOPE (Health Opportunities through Physical Education) course through Florida Virtual School (https://www.flvs.net)*. This may be completed at any time before graduation. Do not use a student's Canterbury email account when registering as these cannot receive an email from outside servers.

Community Service

All Upper School students, who attend all four years at Canterbury, must have a minimum of 100 community service hours to graduate. Additionally, all Upper School students have an annual community service requirement. New students will be expected to fulfill the required hours for the years they attend Canterbury.

Seniors must have completed their annual requirement as a prerequisite to beginning their I.S.P. (Independent Senior Projects). Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen are expected to have their annual requirement completed prior to the last day of school.

Annual Requirement
  • Freshmen 20 hours
  • Sophomore 20 hours
  • Juniors 30 hours
  • Seniors 30 hours
  • National Honor Society members have an additional requirement of 15 hours of community service during the year of their induction and 30 hours thereafter.
  • Bright Future Scholarship requirements
    • Florida Academic Scholars Award (FAS) (This is the top award for which many of our students qualify.) NOW REQUIRES 100 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE BY GRADUATION
    • Florida Medallion Scholars Award (FMS) (Those Canterbury students who do not qualify for FAS often qualify for FMS) NOW REQUIRES 75 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE BY GRADUATION (No previous community service requirement)
    • Florida Gold Seal Vocational Scholars Award (GSV) (Does not usually apply to Canterbury students) NOW REQUIRES 30 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE BY GRADUATION (No previous community service requirement)
Community Service hours completed during the summer will be applied towards the next school year's requirement, provided that the student has already satisfied the previous year's requirement.
