Canterbury’s mission has always been to offer a quality education in a diverse community. Families from a wide range of economic backgrounds and circumstances enrich the educational environment for every child.
There are families who can afford the full tuition rate, families who could not be at Canterbury without substantial financial aid, and families of every circumstance in between.
We offer a merit scholarship for high-achieving, low-income students of color entering 6th grade. For more information on the Armfield Scholarship Program, click here.
Families can choose to pay for tuition in a lump sum, twice yearly, or monthly during the school year. After an initial set-up fee, there are no additional fees or penalties for this service.

While every family is expected to contribute to the cost of a Canterbury education as their family circumstances allow, Canterbury’s indexed tuition program determines the cost for each student based on the family’s economic situation. In 2019-20, 29 percent of Canterbury students qualified for indexed tuition.

FAST, an objective third party, helps us assess what a family is able to contribute to education expenses. There is a processing fee of $45 that must be included with your application and forms.
A student’s tuition amount is based on their ability to contribute, along with school policies and the funds available to returning students and applicant families. We will notify families of their tuition level on the same schedule as admission decision letters. Though decisions about admission and indexed tuition are made at the same time, the two processes are separate. All financial information you provide remains confidential.
*Please note: Indexed tuition is not available for Cubs or PreK students.
