Welcome to Alterra Consulting

About Alterra Consulting

Alterra is a Washington DC-based group of education consultants committed to promoting a nuanced and textured understanding of global trends, events, and perspectives for US students, teachers, and school administrators.  

Professional Development For Educators

During Academic Year 2020-2021, our seven Global Field Experiences represent a broad, far-reaching assessment of the major challenges facing our planet – from human rights to climate change, conflict resolution to technological innovation.  For the first time, this year’s experiences will be virtual!

Experiential Learning For Students

We offer four products to stimulate student interest in global trends and perspectives: Online conferences with foreign peers, special campus leadership projects, curriculum-linked global service, and course capstones overseas.  Most experiences this year will be virtual.

International Student Recruitment

Alterra supports school admissions officers to recruit and enroll international students.  Our team collaborates with a range of public, private, and education-sector stakeholders in China, South Korea, Vietnam, and elsewhere to pair students seeking a rigorous stateside academic experience with welcoming boarding school environments.
