Purpose & Mission

Our reason, our drive

Veritas Academy equips students to lead with clarity and virtue through a classical Christian education. Through its unique program, Veritas Academy seeks to accomplish the following distinct goal:

"Graduate engaged citizens who are thoroughly equipped for moral contribution."

To achieve this goal, Veritas is committed to the following objectives and strategies:

    1. Careful student selection process based on aptitude for learning and parent commitment to collaboration with the school (Daniel 1:4).
    2. Careful teacher selection process.
    3. Instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue.
    4. Maintain small class sizes for increased learning (max 15 students per class).
    5. Apply pedagogy-driven technology while cultivating wisdom and virtue.
    6. Teach Latin and expose students to the great books of Western civilization.
    7. Maintain accountability through accreditation.
    8. Uniform and dress code.
We utilize this very short window of time where children's natural lean is to hear things over and over again with JOY. God created their brains like sponges, and they can learn an abundance of information they will retain throughout their lives when set to fun song and chants.
You know your child has entered this stage when they want to dig deeper. Here, the “what” and the “why” come together. This is the shortest stage, but a very important step into adolescence. We support them and allow them the space to become who God is shaping them to be, in a loving environment where the quest for truth and knowledge is applauded. 
Ah, when all your teen wants to do is argue! We teach them to argue well. God gives us the ability to enter into wisdom beginning in this stage, and it will carry us through our lives. Having practiced the art of public speaking since the grammar stage, they can debate well by getting their point across without tearing down their opponent. 

Veritas students will be set apart because they will:

    1. Possess concrete skills and knowledge to participate fully and effectively in society.
    2. Uphold a standard of excellence.
    3. Emulate the moral virtues of heroes and heroines.

      A true classical, liberal, civic education recognizes with Lincoln that if we know where we are, by knowing where we have been, we shall then know “whither we are tending.” (A Classical Education for Modern Times, Terrence O. Moore)
