At Canterbury, there is a genuine sense of community that creates a safe place for children to challenge themselves. Students and teachers develop meaningful and lifelong personal connections here. Canterbury attracts students from a wide range of backgrounds and beliefs. We believe that diversity fortifies our community and school programs.
On behalf of the Canterbury community, welcome! We are honored that your family is considering Canterbury as your school home.
For 30 years, Canterbury's preschool to 8th grade model has focused on the foundational years, setting students up for a lifetime of success. As the only Episcopal day school in the Triad, Canterbury is uniquely positioned to offer spiritual development that encourages and celebrates diversity of beliefs, thoughts, and experiences.
If you are looking for a school where your child is known, cared for, and loved, where your child isn't pressured to grow up too quickly, where your middle schooler is a leader, and where your child will develop the skills and habits to be successful on their future path, then Canterbury is the place for your family and we hope you will join us. Our motto - "To Learn, To Love, To Serve: To Live" - underpins everything we do on campus and off.
I invite you to experience Canterbury for yourself; once you've visited, you'll see why families throughout the Triad choose Canterbury. Schedule a tour, attend an upcoming event, and start the conversation today. The moment you step onto campus, you'll know what sets Canterbury apart.
