That vision was realized on September 8, 1977, when Canterbury School opened as a nondenominational, self-supported school with 89 students in Kindergarten through Grade Six.
In 1979, Canterbury expanded to Kindergarten through Grade 8 and, in 1980, moved to its present Covington Road campus.
The High School began in 1983 on the Covington Road campus. Canterbury’s first High School class graduated in June 1987. Following that first graduation in 1987, the High School relocated to a 60,000-square-foot facility on a 40-acre campus on Smith Road, just southeast of the Covington Road campus.
Today the school enrollment is more than 930 students, with 110 full and part time faculty and administrators. Average class sizes range from 17-19 students.
