Bishop Johnson LOVES God and it comes through in his chapel lessons. My daughter has such a vibrant understanding of God and her faith as a result of attending Canterbury. My daughter is in second grade and her cursive is better than many adults. :-)
Outstanding Christian School with small classes, dedicated teachers, and a great feeling of community. We have children in both Kindergarten and 1st Grade and they both love going to school. Our family appreciates the high academic standards, but are particularly excited about the school’s emphasis on Christian education. We want our children to have a high moral character and be intellectually challenged; Canterbury balances both.
This is a very small school tucked into a residential neighborhood. There is one class per grade and class size can be a small as a handful of students. So children receive very close instruction but sacrifice a larger space to play in. At Canterbury there is low teacher turnover and families tend to stay in the school all the way through sixth grade. As a result, they have a small but very friendly and cohesive community, with high parent participation. The whole school works together at school events to make them successful. If you want your child to have an academically rigorous and structured Christian education that challenges children to do their best, this is the school for you. The homework load in the upper grades is pretty large and children are very well prepared to think and write for middle school and beyond. They do a good job with the small space they have and offer extras throughout the year, Opera a la Carte, Latin, Handbells, Choir, Chapel, field trips. The price for a good private education is very reasonable.
