Augusta Preparatory Day School was conceived with the future in mind. The demonstration of stewardship by the 100 parents who supported its initial financial backing in 1960 validated the need for an independent day school with a college preparatory academic curriculum. Thirty-eight students enrolled in grades seven through nine and arrived for their first day of school on September 5, 1961. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools officially recognized Augusta Prep’s excellence in 1966 when the school was accredited. That tradition of educational excellence continues today.
Located on a 52-acre campus in Augusta, Georgia, today the school serves 570 students grades pre-school through twelve. The mission of Augusta Preparatory Day School is to provide the Augusta area with the highest quality college preparatory education for average and above-average students in an independent, non-sectarian, coeducational school. The educational philosophy of Augusta Preparatory Day School emphasizes effective teaching and a challenging academic program, well rounded by a flourishing athletics and fine arts curriculum. The school is strongly committed to the values and traditions of our Western civilization, reflecting the ethics of Judeo-Christian teaching in an ethnically diverse, non-sectarian environment. The school chooses to remain small and to provide individual attention through low student-faculty ratios and flexible programs. Students take reasonable responsibility for maintaining order in their own academic and social lives. Augusta Prep has a long-standing Honor Code that does not accept lying, stealing, cheating, nor tolerating those who do. It is intended that this spirit will develop a strong motivating sense of personal identification with, and pride in, a community of special character.
Augusta Prep has a diverse, motivated, and talented student body, eager to learn and work hard for academic achievements. Our average class size of 11 promotes intimate intellectual exchange between teacher and student, and among classmates, thereby achieving a synergy that enriches learning. Augusta Prep students select from a rich blend of rigorous academic classes in English, mathematics, history, science, foreign language, and fine arts classes that include theater, music, and art. A well crafted four-year academic plan meets each student's goals and needs. A unique feature of the Upper School curriculum is the Independent Study program, which provides courses precision tailored to the student ambitious enough to pursue them. Extracurricular and enrichment programs complement the academic program, deepening students' understanding and experience. Competitive teams in math, science, theater, music and debate participate at the state-level. National Honor Society and membership in the Cum Laude Society further harmonize the curriculum. Augusta Prep offers an abundance of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, many of which are student led, such as Student Council, Honor Education Council, National Honor Society, and Class Officers.
Students are the focal point of Augusta Prep. They strive to seek opportunities to individually achieve success, develop leadership potential, and become aware of community responsibility. To be, rather than to seem, clearly defines the Augusta Prep student.

Canterbury School is an independent, coeducational day school, offering a college-preparatory education to students age 2 through Grade 12, and serving families throughout northeast Indiana and counties in northwest Ohio. The school is known in the community for its challenging academic program, student service activities, arts program, all-inclusive athletics program, small class size, talented faculty and family atmosphere. Each year 100 percent of the senior class graduates and enrolls in college.
The school was founded in 1977 by a group of seven families intent on creating an educational program that would better challenge their children. Their vision for the school was to inspire and motivate students while setting high standards for teaching and learning, cultivating an appreciation for the fine arts, and developing foreign language skills in an environment supported by non-denominational Christian values. This remains true today. The school opened with 89 students in Kindergarten through Grade 6. Today the school is organized into four divisions on two campuses: Early Childhood, Lower School, Middle School and High School, and serves more than 1,000 students.
Canterbury's rigorous academic curriculum is designed to promote curiosity and creativity at every level, encouraging students to reach their potential intellectually, artistically and morally. Daily life is conducted according to an honor code. Acts of kindness, cooperation, and good citizenship receive community recognition. The Canterbury faculty members believe that building a values-based community from the earliest grades creates an atmosphere of inclusion where all students are welcomed in an environment of honesty, charity and respect. Accordingly, central to Canterbury's mission are its goals to enroll students of diverse talents and backgrounds and to promote the total development of each child in his or her intellectual, physical, social and spiritual growth. We believe the school community and its members are enriched by understanding and respecting the differences and uniqueness in all people. As a result, the school encourages faculty and students to initiate and support programs, practices and curricula that promote the diversity of the world in which we live.
