College Counseling

As you consider where your path will take you after Canterbury School, we are here every step of the way.

At Canterbury School, we aim to foster the widest ranging college conversation at high school in Indiana.  Colleges across the country know Canterbury School's curriculum and extracurricular program prepares students to rise to the challenge at any institution they choose.  At Canterbury, every student’s search for their best college fit is fully individualized and they are guided by a counselor who deeply understands their goals and aspirations.

The College Counseling team works with Canterbury students at all stages of the high school program, offering expert guidance on college exploration and preparation for the college application process. We help students to learn to identify the factors which will lead to their best college fit and instill the confidence to explore the college landscape boldly in search of it.

Canterbury offers a canvas for academic and personal growth that few secondary schools can match. From Grade 9, students chart a personalized path through Canterbury’s academic program that fully leverages the distinctive opportunities available to them. At the same time, we support and encourage students to find their place and their voice in school life and to cultivate both existing and emerging interests throughout their years in high school.

In Grade 11 students begin the College Bound program, a signature program at Canterbury offering students opportunities for college exploration and preparation unsurpassed in our region. Students participate in a multi-day college trip beyond the Midwest in November of Grade 11 and then begin a weekly College Bound seminar that meets during the school day through the fall of Grade 12. The college counseling team conducts individual meetings with all students, providing personalized guidance on the college testing, the college list, essays, resumes, academic planning and summer enrichment, and scholarships.
