THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE—TRIAD NC | VOLUME 14—ISSUE 1 42 Caldwell Caldwell Canterbury School At Canterbury School, we believe that the ultimate purpose of education is to prepare students to become contributors to and leaders in an ever-changing world. To achieve that, our educational approach is unique. Our PreK-8 structure concentrates on the learning needs and development of young children and middle school adolescents without the distractions that can come with a high school. Our small size of about 40 in each grade means that each student is known, cared for, and loved. We recognize the best education develops the whole child: mind, body, and spirit. We are part of a long Episcopal school tradition of strong academics, an inquiry-based approach to learning, and a diverse environment. Since our founding 22 years ago, Canterbury graduates have gone on to success at a variety of public, independent, and boarding schools. See our ad on page 51. Forsyth Country Day School At Forsyth Country Day School, we believe that a truly excellent education integrates opportunities to explore a variety of interests that complement and enrich strong academics. Our invested teachers get to know each student well, and small classes allow them to take an individualized approach. Teacher, coaches, and counselors come to understand how each student learns, what they love, and when they need an extra challenge or more support. From our preschool program through twelfth grade, we at Forsyth Country Day School work together to provide a superior education for our students, helping them to discover not only their academic strengths, but their passions and goals. This spirit of exploration and excellence enables our graduates to excel in college and beyond, and to fnd personal fulfllment throughout their lives. See our ad on page 44.

While our 2015 graduating class earned more than $4.1 million in scholarships and our graduates are routinely accepted into some of the top colleges in the nation, our goal is not just to prepare students for college. As a classical Christian school, we want them to love learning and to learn how to live. Stop by today and discover the diference. See our ad on page 54.
