KCA DeSoto student organizations are designed to encourage students to explore their interests and promote responsibility and student leadership. New organizations form each year as students’ interests emerge.
Canterbury welcomes families to participate in our Before and After School Program for students enrolled in pre-kindergarten – Grade 8.
Students enrolled in the Before School Program are given the opportunity to quietly visit with friends, eat breakfast, read and comfortably transition into the start of their school day.
Our after-school enrichment program offers students the opportunity to have fun and pursue their passions in areas of interests in a safe Christian environment after-school. Your child will participate in a variety of after-school activities that will hold them accountable to complete their schoolwork and encourage them to explore their passions and build their skill set.
Although Canterbury will be closed during school holidays, our After School Program stays open for parents who do not have the workday off.
During school holidays, we plan fieldtrips and educational activities to provide students with culturally enriched experiences.
