Other school levels
Terra Nova Bilingual School is part of Academia Schools GmbH located in Zurich. Our schools support students from kindergarten through to the end of secondary school and beyond. We assist children, young people and adults with their individual learning processes and do all we can to help them achieve their goals. All of our schools foster a respectful, informal, open atmosphere, as we are convinced that this creates the best learning environment for our students.
Dedicated, informal, individual: our German-speaking school for primary, secondary and Year 10 students in Reinach (BL).
Our teaching at Academia Primar & Sek is aligned to the guidelines of the Canton of Basel-Landschaft and to Lehrplan 21. We have been providing secondary school teaching and Year 10 since 2015, and in August 2019, we introduced a primary level too (currently Years 5 and 6).
Naturally bilingual: our bilingual day schools in Basel and Winterthur.
