One week ago, the student body, staff, and parents of Veritas Academy gathered in our courtyard to begin the 2021-2022 school year with praise, prayer, and time in God's word for our traditional ...
Classical education at Veritas is a three-stage process through which students move at appropriate developmental stages. Known collectively as the Trivium, these three stages are called grammar, logic, and rhetoric, and are the tools we apply to the discovery of subject matter as well as the subject matter itself.
Once students master these tools of learning, reasoning, and communication, they can and will continue to utilize them for a lifetime. The result is that students learn how to solve difficult problems, become self-aware, and effectively express what they actually think.What Is Classical Education?

Hands-on projects, engaging discussions, cross-curriculum connections, supportive teachers, and unique school events produce happy students who are well prepared for life.
Through a well-rounded academic program that honors our students’ different personalities, learning styles, and interests, Veritas students grow to become confident thinkers. The time-tested Classical Christian model produces critical thinkers and effective communicators.
Through daily devotions, integrated Scripture in class, singing of traditional hymns, and real-world Biblical application, we invite our students to know and love Christ. Our faculty prays over our students, and Veritas keeps faith at the center of all that we do. We prepare our students to be in the world, not of it.
At Veritas, class sizes are small to encourage collaborative learning and camaraderie. Our Pre K-12 community allows older students to grow as role models, while younger students dream big. Our teachers are excellent at what they do, but more importantly, they show the love of Christ.
Veritas produces well-rounded scholars, artists, and athletes, and our alumni study at colleges and universities across the country where their critical thinking, research and writing skills serve them well. We think all kids deserve a great education, so we make Veritas affordable to families by offering financial aid.
As Classical Christians, Veritas students develop and understanding of the impact they can have on the world around them rooted in Scripture, love, and respect for others. Our students have the opportunity to open their hearts and minds on our annual mission trip to Guatemala.
Veritas partners with families to create the best outcome for our students. We believe that a supported student is a successful student, so we welcome families of all shapes and sizes. Our single campus, private school encourages tight community and bonds between siblings.
The early years of a child’s education create a foundation for a lifetime of learning, so we establish a joyful learning environment in Preschool and Kindergarten. We integrate a thematic concept into all academic areas, while incorporating a wide variety of hands-on learning experiences that engage their five senses. Biblical principles are the basis for each unit. Activities are discovery-based, allowing children to flourish in both large and small-group settings, classroom centers, and rotating learning centers. These programs focus on academic and social preparation for lower school and for life.
At the age when children are naturally inquisitive and are both willing and able to learn lots of material, we equip them with a “storehouse of knowledge” that serve as building blocks for the future of their education. When coupled with the wisdom that flows from a Classical Christian Education, our students are prepared to do great things.
During the Logic stage, Veritas teaches our children how to think and argue using logic. We teach children how things relate to each other – cause and effect. This is a method that is used across every class. In science, we learn the scientific method to find truth. In math, we solve for unknowns and test proofs logically. In languages, students use word endings to decode languages. In art and music, they can form opinions are argue what makes a piece good. Learning the art of argumentation prepares middle school students for college and beyond.
The Classical Christian Education model produces mature, young adults who can think for themselves. In the Rhetoric stage, students are taught how to communicate winsomely and effectively. Children combine the knowledge and wisdom they learned in Grammar and Logic to solve difficult problems, become self-aware, and express what they think through speech, papers, and teamwork. They move deeper into all subjects, polishing and perfecting their thinking and communication skills.

"My children all seem genuinely excited to go to school each day. There are so many interesting ways to learn things at Veritas - from learning fun actions and songs, to dressing up, to exciting trips, to great stories - and more. Math has become the favorite subject of my 6th grader! The orderly environment gives my kids confidence and stability as they learn new things. The teachers and staff welcome parent questions and feedback in such a warm way. We love that our children are developing a true love of learning and that they are doing it in a Christ-centered, kind, and thoughtful environment."
"Our children entered Veritas Academy when they were in 4th and 5th grade. I loved how they made learning fun by using special feasts and themed celebrations. When our children were older, we toured Europe one summer and my husband and I were so impressed that they both knew so much about the history of the different countries we visited and commented that they had learned everything at school. Our oldest is now a Freshman in college. She is in an Honors Program and her classes are difficult, but she is not struggling and feels that Veritas Academy prepared her very well academically."
"Veritas beautifully combines educational excellence with humility. They truly live out their mission of cultivating loving, serving, and thinking students. I was an elementary teacher before becoming a mother and therefore have been in various schools and in many classrooms, but it is easy to say that the Veritas classes are filled with the most joyful learning I have ever seen. Veritas has cultivated a love for learning in our son as well as a confidence that he can learn and grow, and we will be forever grateful for the impact that this school is having on our children."
"This school has given our children the gift of joy in their learning. From their first day attending (third grade and sixth grade), we witnessed enthusiasm and energy for the content they were studying. The caring, nurturing environment that Veritas provides allows students to grow, to challenge, to explore and to delight in the topics of study at their disposal. I can’t imagine a better approach to education for my children!"
