History of Terra Education


Since our inception, innovation has made us stand out in international education and travel.
We're open to new ideas and always striving to work better and smarter to serve our communities, students/travelers, and staff.


From our roots as a summer program designed to support what eventually became the African Leadership Academy, to an organization that has provided life-changing experiences for tens of thousands of young people and their families, we never lose sight of our goal to make the world a better place, and to empower the next generation to achieve their dreams.
