Canterbury Christian School prepares students to confidently respond to Christ’s call on their lives.

Our Academic Programs

Your four-year-old child can learn to read and write independently! Children have fun while learning the essentials—reading, writing, and numbers—and so much more!

Our advanced phonics-based curriculum embraces academic excellence from a Christian perspective. Our full-day includes recitations, cursive handwriting, poetry, drama, art, and music.

Nurture your child’s academic abilities, sense of citizenship, and thinking skills as he experiences an environment that fosters Christian character and an enthusiasm for learning.

Expose your child to the best of classical education activities. Students enjoy Latin, Hand Bells, Choir, Mandarin, Art, Drama, Creative Writing, Math Clubs, and more!
