Families come to Canterbury for a Classical Christian Education

Giving your children an excellent education is one of the best investments you can make. Since 1974, families have chosen Canterbury Christian School to provide their children with a Classical Christian education in a warm, friendly atmosphere. Students receive a solid academic foundation with an emphasis on Christian character and patriotism.

Priority enrollment consideration is given to: re-enrolling students and siblings who meet all admissions qualifications.

The first step in Canterbury’s admissions process is to complete an application form, either online or at a campus, along with a $75 non-refundable application fee.

Depending on available space, applications for admission may be considered throughout the year.

Upon receipt of your application, Canterbury will schedule an assessment and family interview. Once a child is accepted, we will provide an enrollment contract if space is available for your child. The enrollment contract must be signed and submitted with appropriate fees.

Grade Level Readiness

Canterbury welcomes students throughout the school year, as long as there is space available in the desired program, and the child is grade level ready. We use the following guidelines to determine grade level readiness:

Pre-Enrollment Assessments

We interview and assess all new students prior to granting admission in order to confirm grade level readiness. This is included with the application fee and the test includes sections on reading, writing, and math.

Pre-Kindergarten (K-4) & Kindergarten (K-5)

Children turning four years old on or before December 2 of the school year are eligible for enrollment in our four-year-old kindergarten program. Children turning five years old on or before December 2 of the school year are eligible for enrollment in our five-year-old kindergarten program. Canterbury may conduct personal interviews with applicants and enrollments are offered if there is availability.


Once your child has gone through the admissions process, Canterbury will send out enrollment contracts, as well as information outlining the fees associated with securing your child’s spot.
