Thank you for your interest in Canterbury! Canterbury seeks families who value the benefits of a challenging private Christian school education and who are prepared to actively support their children through a collaborative educational process. At Canterbury, we work together as a team for the sole benefit of our children.
Inquire: We are happy to answer questions about Canterbury and give more information as requested. Please fill out an Inquiry Form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Visit Canterbury: A visit to the campus is one of the best ways for you to experience the unique warmth and beauty of the Canterbury community. Please contact the Admissions Office at (972) 572-7200 ext. 109 to schedule a convenient time for your family.
For each student applying, we require a completed application, two Teacher Evaluations (1st – 12th Grades, English and Math teacher required; if self-contained, only one evaluation from the core class teacher of record is required ), and a Record Release Form. We request an attendance record, discipline record, assessment results, and an official transcript as applicable.
Assess: Once we have received the completed forms along with the application fee, we will schedule an assessment for your child. The assessment includes a school readiness appraisal, appropriate language arts and mathematics evaluations, and a writing sample.
Shadow and Family Interview: We invite your child to visit our campus for a day to shadow a current student. This provides an opportunity to attend classes, participate in school activities, and visit with teachers. The family interview is conducted by a member of our administrative team. This chat allows for a more personal exchange as we get to know your family and you get more insight into our Canterbury identity. It is important that both our staff and you feel that Canterbury is the best fit for your child's needs.
Decide: The decision process takes approximately two weeks to complete and is based on a thorough review of the assessment results, teacher evaluations, school records, student visit (when applicable) and family interview. Canterbury will offer admission to qualified students whenever spaces are available; otherwise, qualified students will be placed on a waiting list.
