We define outstanding faculty as individuals who are committed to the goals of Canterbury, who have unquestioned character, and who demonstrate characteristics of professional excellence.
Canterbury strives to provide an excellent professional work climate with selective student enrollment, small class sizes, considerable faculty input in to course descriptions and curriculum, supportive parents, friendly atmosphere, and a strong commitment to professional development.
Faculty financial compensation is based on an annual salary. A flexible benefits program strives to meet individual faculty needs. Compensation for faculty is based on comparison with median day school salaries as published by the National Association of Independent Schools. Following are some of the items listed in our benefits plan.
Canterbury School offers its employees medical coverage through PHP. The plan features comprehensive coverage for a wide range of preventive and medical services including office visits, emergency services, urgent care, home health care, outpatient therapies, X-ray and laboratory services, mental health, inpatient and out patient, and prescription drug coverage.
Humana covers preventive, basic and major services with a maximum annual benefit per covered person.
Employees enrolled in the school's PHP medical plan also receive vision benefits. By utilizing the services of a provider listed in the Preferred Provider Directory, benefits include routine vision exams with a co-pay and preferred pricing on a large selection of brand-name designer frames, lenses, and lens options.
Canterbury School offers employees a long-term disability income benefit as an elective benefit through Reliance Standard. In the event an employee becomes disabled from a non-work-related injury or sickness, disability income benefits are provided as a source of income.
403(b) Retirement Plan
To help employees prepare for the future, Canterbury School sponsors a 403(b) Retirement Plan through Lincoln National or TIAA-CREF as part of its benefits package. Full- or part-time employees may participate in this plan on the first day of employment.
Save as much as 100 percent of pay on a before-tax basis (not to exceed the IRS allowable contribution limits annually). In addition, receive matching contributions from Canterbury School on part of your savings as determined annually by the board.
Through Reliance Standard, Canterbury School provides full-time employees with group life equal to one times annual salary and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance equal to two times annual salary.The school pays the full cost of this benefit.
Voluntary Life Insurance
Employees who want to supplement their group life insurance benefits may purchase additional coverage.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) Cafeteria Plan
Canterbury provides a Health Care Reimbursement FSA for certain IRS-approved medical expenses not covered by an employee's insurance plan with pre-tax dollars. The Dependent Care FSA lets employees use pre-tax dollars toward qualified dependent care such as caring for children under the age of 13 or caring for elders.
