Special thanks to all the volunteers and donors who helped to make our Laughing Cavalier celebration on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017, a terrific success. “And the Oscar goes to…” evoked all the Hollywood glamour and excitement of the red carpet. The Laughing Cavalier 2017 Co-Chairs Niki Carver, Kristin Pine and Brooke Stewart hosted a spectacular event!
Auctioneer David Goodman returned this year to fire up the room and, with the help of our Auction Assistant alums and faculty, raised $139,000 in this year’s Live auction. Our Special Focus, Preparing for the Future, highlighted the importance and need for ever-changing technology in today’s interconnected world. Film teacher Adam King and our Oscar winning students created a special video shown during the event. The evening raised $60,900 for educational technology.

LML Estate Management filled the room with glittering gold and twinkling stars. Blu Spoon Catering took us on an Oscar-worthy culinary adventure. David Goodman kept us focused, so it was truly a party with a purpose. Our 31st event is on track to raise more than $250,000. The Laughing Cavalier effort marches on…all in support of our children’s education. Join us for the next Laughing Cavalier - Friday, Feb. 23, 2018.

Laughing Cavalier benefits school programs
Support for Student Financial Aid
Canterbury's tuition assistance programs are intended to maintain an economically diverse student body and to provide opportunities to students who might not otherwise be able to afford a Canterbury education. The need for tuition assistance should never discourage a family from applying to Canterbury School.
Support for Faculty
Over the years, nine department chairs in major academic disciplines have been established. The mathematics department chair is a fully endowed faculty position. Faculty professional development is supported through endowments for technology and summer programs, as well as through the school’s operating fund. Canterbury is committed to recognizing and rewarding excellence in teaching and to attracting and retaining the most highly qualified faculty.
Support for Capital Programs
The capital programs endowment ensures that our facilities receive ongoing maintenance and upkeep, relieving pressure on annual tuition. Additional capital expenditures focusing on educational priorities are made through the operating budget.
