Canterbury provides an academically-rigorous program that inspires a love of learning.

The comprehensive academic program begins in Prep and builds on learning experiences developed from the Australian Curriculum until Year 10 and the Queensland Certificate of Education until the end of Year 12.

Key to academic excellence is inspiring curiosity and a desire for continuous improvement, aspects embedded into every lesson at Canterbury. Canterbury staff understand students need support in developing strategies to achieve excellence that will serve them, not just through their schooling years, but into adult life.

Canterbury’s core value of scholarship encourages every student to commit to mastering new skills and enjoying the experience of feeling challenged.

The College not only values exceptional academic outcomes but also improvement in academic outcomes at all achievement levels. Our system of awards recognises both excellence and improvement.
