Strengthen the Student Experience

Hilltop Projects

Canterbury is moving forward with a series of projects: construction of a new student-centric building and creation of a campus square and streetscape.  Together, these projects will have a transformative impact on the landscape of our hilltop campus, and more importantly, on the students who live and learn here.

Center for Faith, Service & Justice

$17 Million

The Steers Center is the result of an extensive community-wide study focused on the day-to-day academic and extracurricular lives of our students and faculty.  

This striking, 22,000-square foot building seated at the heart of campus will engage students in activities that nurture mind and spirit. It will provide an environment that inspires enriched learning in an innovative and collaborative atmosphere, while also offering an inviting, central gathering place for the entire School community. With academic spaces overlooking an expansive student commons and atrium, the visible connection between both levels of the building will allow interactions to occur readily and frequently among our students and faculty.
