The school is situated on a hilltop adjacent to the historic section of New Milford, Connecticut. The campus is about 75 miles from New York City in an area of natural beauty near the Housatonic River and the Appalachian Trail with sweeping views of the Litchfield Hills.
Canterbury was founded in 1915 by prominent lay Catholics. One of the founders, Dr. Nelson Hume, was honored by Pope Pius XI for his outstanding work in education. Today the Canterbury student body is a diverse mix of both Catholics and non-Catholics from 19 countries and 23 states. Canterbury’s spiritual tradition complements all aspects of the program.
