Canterbury Scholar Competition
The Canterbury Scholar Competition is an opportunity for area eighth graders to compete for scholarships to attend Canterbury High School beginning in their freshman year. As many as ten scholarships of $2,000 annually ($8,000 total for Canterbury High School) will be awarded toward tuition in this special opportunity.
The morning of the Canterbury Scholar Competition (TBA for October 2017) students will take part in a standardized test and write an essay. All participating students and their parents will have the opportunity to schedule a conference to review the results.
While the eighth graders are testing, their parents will attend an informational session from 9 to 10:30 a.m. explaining about the school's college preparatory curriculum, athletics program, fine arts opportunities and extracurricular programs.
Awards will be based on standardized testing, an essay, school transcripts and a personal interview.
In addition to scholarship awards, need based financial aid is available to all participants who qualify.
All participating students and their parents will have the opportunity to schedule a conference to review the results.
Each participant will schedule a day to return to Canterbury to attend classes with a Canterbury freshman and interview with school representatives.
