While schools are shut down to help our community and nation in the fight against COVID-19, Veritas Academy has gone fully online and is offering select classes for any student in the community to audit for free! This gives families a chance to not only experience the truth, beauty, and goodness found in Classical Christian Education, but also helps kids stay on pace with school while buildings are shuttered.
What Does Auditing Mean?
Students who are auditing a class will not be graded on work or assignments, but can "sit in" and listen to class instruction and discussions in order to not only grow in their education endeavors and stay sharp on schoolwork, but also enrich their minds and lives while schools are closed.
What Classes Are Available for Auditing?
This list will be updated in the coming week(s) with additional classes.
