About Us

Accreditation & History

Canterbury Technical Academy is an AdvancED® SACS™ (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) accredited learning institution. CTA is committed to providing an environment in which all our students are able to succeed. Originally founded as a school for at risk youth, Canterbury's individual paced plans allow students to learn at their own rate. Over the last 20 years, Canterbury has helped many students with their educational needs and has challenged students to excel in previously weak areas.


Canterbury Technical Academy's mission, as an institute for quality learning, is to provide a people-focused, supportive, and challenging environment within which every learner (meaning both staff and students) joyously pursues quality in both behavior and learning, becoming a lifelong self-evaluating, productive, caring, and responsible member of the diverse and constantly changing world.


The ultimate vision of Canterbury Technical Academy is both simple and profound: to have taught our students to accept personal responsibility for their actions, respect others, and combine their very best efforts to tackle the complex problems they are certain to face in the 21st century.
