Challenging the mind. Nourishing the spirit.
Canterbury School is a Preschool-8th grade co-educational Episcopal day school in Greensboro, NC. Canterbury's mission is to develop the whole child by challenging the mind and nourishing the spirit in a diverse community guided by Judeo-Christian values. Founded in 1993 by a group of parents, Canterbury offers strong academics and small class sizes; a Preschool-8th grade setting where children don’t have to grow up too quickly; an intentional focus on the mind, body, and spirit; and recognition that the best education occurs in an environment where students are exposed to a variety of people, perspectives, and ideas.
