Welcome! Thank you for your interest in our school. Canongate is a community of families in the Asheville – Hendersonville mountains dedicated to the renewal of Catholic liberal arts education. Established in 2013, Canongate exists to teach the Western tradition and provide a challenging place of leisure that nurtures and forms young people in truth, goodness, and beauty.
We are not innovators; we are not swept up by educational trends. Our adaptation of the classical model for the modern student provides outstanding academic results. We guide students to read and question Great books patiently, to listen attentively, to think logically, and to write clearly. Our students, at all levels of academic ability, perform above state and national averages on the SAT, and our graduates attend their preferred college, many with merit scholarships.
Great things are happening at Canongate! Reconnecting education and culture works wonders in the lives of young people. Many in the community are saying that there is no school like it. Feel free to contact me if you have questions, whether it’s about the liberal arts, our athletic programs, our artistic culture, or college preparation. I’m pleased to say that Canongate has the least expensive high school tuition in the region, discounts are available for multiple children, and scholarships are available to those in need.
So, come grow with us. Be a part of a vibrant Catholic community in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.
