Developing character on & off the field.

Life-long lessons through team sports.

Through sports, students are given real-life opportunities to develop a good work ethic, manage multiple academic tasks and activities, learn to balance church, school and family life, develop good relationship skills, and most importantly, develop a closer relationship with Christ. The experience of playing in team sports is something that athletes remember forever, and many life-long lessons are learned in athletics.

The coaches are different here, and for a reason.

Our Coaches are intentional about using sports as a way to teach important life skills, such as good work ethic, time management, and relationship building. More importantly, they aim to help students develop a closer relationship with Christ through their involvement in athletics. This approach to coaching, along with a focus on teamwork and character development, sets Veritas apart from other schools and creates a unique and holistic experience for student-athletes.

Experience Our Love For The Game

Our coaches aim to develop young athletes who see sports as a means to valuable ends, not the end goal. We help students balance athletics with other commitments, diverging from society's obsession with sports statistics.
