Founded in 1977, The Canaan Ridge School has enriched the lives of a great many children. We provide an exceptional educational experience, offering a balance of an outstanding academic program, along with art, music, physical education, science, chess and languages. This experience is what draws students back to visit years later as they realize more fully the gift that Canaan Ridge has given them.

All schools can praise their programs, and say those perennial, long-standing phrases such as "…to achieve a lifelong love of learning…" But it is all reflected in the outcome. Has the school program really met its goal? Do children leave the school well prepared with a good, solid foundation to go forward and base all future learning on what they had learned in their early grades? Here at Canaan Ridge, this is what we strive for...this is what we achieve!
