Why Canterbury School?

JUST THE RIGHT SIZE

We're a day school for students Age 2 through Grade 12, with 968 students and 115 teaching faculty.

A RICH CURRICULUM

As a college-preparatory school, we place our primary emphasis on the work of the classroom, and the tasks that will mold young minds and create lifetime learners. Materials and methodology complement each other in bringing subjects to life, from early reading experiences to the sophistication of college-level Advanced Placement courses.

TALENTED FACULTY

More than 65 of our 115 teaching faculty hold advanced degrees. The faculty get to know students not just in the classroom but on the playing field, on the stage and through the various activities they advise.

A GOAL OF EXCELLENCE

In each graduating class, 100 percent of students take the SAT and/or the ACT. A relatively high number of these students are also recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program, either as Finalists, Semi-Finalists, Commended Scholars and/or National Achievement or Hispanic Scholars.

A PALETTE OF FINE ARTS

We offer choir, orchestra, visual arts, dance, band, theater, photography, music technology and speech. Plays, musicals, concerts, exhibits, chess and speech meets are all part of a program in which we take great pride. Learn more here.

A JUMP ON JOURNALISM AND WRITING

Lower School, Middle School and High School offer opportunities to write for the school newspapers and literary magazines. The yearbook is offered to High School students as an extracurricular activity. Additionally, a high number of submissions to the Scholastic Writing Awards earn regional and national awards annually.

A CHANCE TO PLAY

Our all-inclusive policy gives everyone an opportunity to join our many interscholastic sports teams for Grades 5-12. Seventeen Indiana High School Athletics Association sports are offered.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEADERSHIP AND SERVICE

The Cavalier Helpers, Resource Committees, House Board, Honor Committee, Senior Leadership Forum, Key Club and Peer Tutors are some of the ways to serve and to lead within our school. Students also make a positive difference in the community through service and projects.

A CHALLENGE

Canterbury students continue to outperform area high schools on the Advanced Placement Exams. Canterbury High School students scored an average 3.98 out of a possible 5.0 on exams from May 2017. Most colleges or universities give course credit or advanced standing to students who score a 3 or higher on the AP exams. Additionally, the College Board awarded 79 AP Scholar Designations and named seven students as National AP Scholars.

A MATCH FOR THE NEXT STEP

Three full-time college counselors work with students to help shape the best possible college match. Students benefit from the College Bound program and Junior Class College Trip.

GOOD FOOD & CONVERSATION

The cafeteria is more than a place that offers a great lunch. It's where students and faculty gather to discuss the day's events and share stories.

TRADITIONS

Grandparents Day, morning Chapel, school musicals, Thanksgiving Feast, Family Fun Run, Fall Family Picnic, Parents Night Out, and Hoopla are just a few of our great traditions.
