Schedule an assessment visit
Assessments generally take place in January and February.
Once you have submitted your application and provided your supporting documents, our team will work with your family to schedule a visit for your child. These visits typically start at the beginning of January. Visits look different depending on the age of your child. Early childhood applicants will participate in an age-appropriate playdate. Applicants for kindergarten and older will complete an academic assessment as part of their visit that will help our committee determine if we are able to meet their learning needs. This visit is also an important opportunity for your child to see what Canterbury is like and learn more about the school.
Offer of admission
First round acceptances will begin Friday, February 10, 2023.
While every child has their own unique gifts and abilities, we regret that we cannot admit every applicant. Our admissions committee carefully reviews each application and decide whether we are able to offer admission. Should your child be accepted, you will receive an enrollment contract to review and your family will be able to make your final decision about enrolling your child at Canterbury.
