The Canterbury Middle School education is vibrant and forward-looking with a rigorous curriculum taught by an exceptional faculty. In Middle School, we pride ourselves on offering students an environment that embraces positive values and moral growth. The innovative and varied programs of the Canterbury Middle School allows for personal interaction between teachers, students and families, and is a crucial cornerstone to the social, emotional and educational development of our students and school. Middle School students are challenged to pursue excellence in character, conduct and scholarship, and to develop the lasting desire to serve and achieve. We believe this is best realized in a community where adults model these qualities and where each student in personally known and valued. Canterbury School’s college preparatory curriculum helps students grow to gain skills, knowledge, and the ability to reason to meet the demands of a college education and to succeed in everyday life. Canterbury provides a demanding yet supportive environment in which students are challenged, learn, take risks and excel. Canterbury School values student leadership in all aspects of student life. Canterbury's Upper School is a safe and nurturing setting in which students can test their leadership skills. By students trying and sometimes failing, they learn to become resilient. In an ever-changing world, Canterbury prepares young adults to reach their potential in learning and living.
