Paul Helmich will come to Canterbury School as a freshman for the 2015-2016 school year through the prestigious Malone Scholars Program. Canterbury School was selected in May 2009 by the Malone Family Foundation to receive a $2 million endowment for the funding of educational opportunities for academically talented and motivated students. Malone Scholars score in the 95th percentile or above on standardized testing and must be in the top 5 percent of their class to be selected.
Canterbury is pleased to announce the Canterbury Scholars who will attend the High School next fall as freshmen. The 33rd annual Canterbury Scholar Competition was an opportunity for all area eighth graders to compete for $8,000 ($2,000/year) in merit scholarships toward Canterbury’s exceptional college preparatory education. More than 80 eighth graders participated in the competition.
Standardized testing, review of grades, an interview, faculty recommendations and a written essay were all factors in determining Canterbury Scholar and Malone Scholar recipients. Each participant also spent time in classes with a Canterbury High School ninth grader to learn more about school life and our college preparatory curriculum.
