About Us

Established in 1645, the Terra Sancta School in Jerusalem has a long tradition of providing a rigorous and wide education from Kindergarten to High School.

Terra Sancta is made up of about 300 students with a mixture of different backgrounds both from Palestinian territories and Jerusalem mixing between both Muslims and Christians.

At Terra Sancta, we cherish the values that have become pillars of student life, the close bonds of friendship and the warmth within our school, the incomparable commitment of our staff in suiting what is best, and lastly the energy of students and guidance of faith which promotes learning both in and outside of the classrooms.

Furthermore, Terra Sancta students benefit from our diverse selection of challenging coursework, the personal attention afforded to them through small classes, our dedication to sports, music and other extra-curricular activities throughout the year. The success of our students and the deep, lifelong connection they share with the school speaks on its own to the experience that students have at Terra Sancta.

The Terra Sancta School of Jerusalem is fully accredited by the “Custodia di Terra Santa” which has always corporatized with the school in benefiting it as much as possible either through different partnerships that helped the school through the Custody. One of the examples regards to the help of the Custody with the European Union and at time other UN organization has helped restore the school’s First and Second floors.
