  • Founded in 1915 and still guided by lay Roman Catholics, Canterbury is a college preparatory, coeducational boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12.
  • The school prides itself on creating a community based on Catholic values, where students and faculty forge lasting bonds and every student experiences a broad and challenging program in a small school setting.
  • The school's educational environment fosters academic rigor, athletic development, artistic enrichment and spiritual growth.
  • The hallmark of a Canterbury education is the school's willingness to accept students as they are, support them where necessary, stretch them where appropriate, and inspire them to become moral leaders in a secular world.
