Start College Differently


What does freshman year look like to you?

The Verto Education platform is built on the premise that not all students need to (or should) take the same linear path to earning their college degree – that the world offers these amazing experiential education opportunities that too few take advantage of. We offer a growing selection of accredited, overseas programs designed to help students achieve that more rewarding freshman year through experiential education in multiple, unique and distinct regions across the world.

Perhaps there’s a specific area of the world that calls to you. Perhaps there’s a specific academic focus that you might find more personally rewarding. No matter which path you choose, once on the ground, you’ll be teamed up with a Program Leader who is there to help you set your own personal goals for the program and to provide support and mentorship during your time abroad.

We encourage you to explore our different programs below. If you have any questions or would like to talk with one of our admissions counsellors to help decide which might be the perfect fit for you, we’d love to get to know you and we can absolutely make some meaningful recommendations based on decades of experience.
