Terra Santa College
Terra Santa College was established in old Nicosia in 1646 as a centre of education for the residents of the island. It was a beam of light during the dark Turkish domination.
The school also continued its operation during the British Colonial period. The English allowed the school to be active and extent its activities to secondary education.
In 1955 Terra Santa is transferred to new school premises in the heights of Saint Paraskevi, in Acropolis, where it is situated today.
In 1971 Terra Santa enters a new sector of activity, the pre-primary education and in the same year Terra Santa’s kindergarten is established, serving children above 3 years old.
