Canterbury School, Fort Wayne, Indiana’s only independent school for early childhood through Grade 12 students, is celebrating the groundbreaking of its new Fine Arts Center. The 18,000-square-foot facility will serve as the hub for the school’s Academy of the Arts program, which was launched in 2020 with a promise to strengthen a robust and dynamic education in the arts. The building will bring both the visual and performing arts to life, while enhancing opportunities to build community. It will feature an art gallery, black box theater, recording studio and podcasting center, visual art classrooms, a digital photography lab and classrooms for band, choir and orchestra, in addition to performance and reception spaces.
Since 1977, Canterbury School has offered exceptional college-preparatory experiences for artists, athletes and scholars. Each student learns to think outside of the box so he or she can problem solve, analyze, ask questions, answer questions and make meaningful connections. The close-knit community of dedicated teachers and supportive families enables Canterbury students to flourish.
Canterbury School’s mission is to maximize the potential of young people by providing a challenging, enriching and supportive learning environment in which students build the foundation for a life of purpose, passion and meaning.
