Like many schools, Veritas has a set of virtues that guide our education. According to Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, education encompasses all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit for usefulness in their future stations. Therefore, Veritas believes that a good education must go beyond the academics and must include instruction into the virtues that make us good human beings. One of the virtues we seek to instill in our students is ownership. Taking ownership is vital to student growth physically, spiritually and emotionally.
