School description

Κολέγιο Τέρρα Σάντα, also known as Terra Santa College, is a historic educational institution located in Nicosia, Cyprus. Founded in 1646, it stands as the oldest school in Cyprus. The foundational principles of the school are Virtue, Diligence, and Creativity.

Initially, the college operated solely as a primary school, but in 1913, it expanded to offer secondary education. In 1955, the Terra Santa College was moved to a newly built privately owned building on the hill of Agia Paraskevi, Acropolis, where it is still located today.

A significant feature of the school is its multiculturalism, as it hosts students from various nationalities and cultures. The school's commitment to education is evident in its collaborations, such as the agreement signed with the University of Cyprus in 2013, recognizing Terra Santa School as a prototype and experimental model school.
