About us

Terra Nova Bilingual School is a state accredited, bilingual private school. Founded in 1996, Terra Nova is an achievement-oriented educational institution and place of innovation. Parents who have high standards for their children’s education find us to be a competent partner. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that students are successfully prepared for entrance to a long- or short-term secondary school.

A team of more than 40 highly motivated teachers with excellent qualifications teaches around 150 students between the ages of 3 and 12 at Terra Nova Bilingual School. Our school building lies in the heart of Küsnacht, not far from the railway station. We see Terra Nova as an open educational and cultural hub.

Terra Nova is part of the Academia Group. We benefit from the exchange with our sister schools Academia Bilingual School in Basel and Winterthur. After Primary School, our students can transfer without exam to our English-language college Academia International School Zurich, which offers a Pre-IGCSE, IGCSE and International A Level programme.
