Academic Acceleration

Veritas Academy serves students and families whose children are not being served by a typical public or private school curriculum due to the fact that the curriculum is too low-level or too slow-paced.  Onsite instruction, 5 days a week is critical in ensuring consistency for the student. Our small class sizes in a large facility (0ver 100,000 sf) make it possible to accomplish our instructional goals. We place students according to their ability, not age. Children who are bright often display signs that they need more from their educational situation. If your child shows any of the following indicators, Veritas Academy may be a good fit:

  • Is your child intellectually bored in school?
  • Do you believe that your child could perform much better, but they seem to be lacking drive?
  • Is your bright child just “getting by”? (This is a sign of underachievement which is typical of a smart child left behind.)
  • Is your child a straight A student without much effort?
  • Is your child generally well behaved in group situations when they are engaged in learning activities that challenge them, but are acting up in school?
  • Does your child have a thirst for information?

Our classes are small, and students are placed with classmates in each subject who are of the same achievement and ability level. We also make all efforts to create classes that do not have students with large gaps in age. This allows for a customized education for every student who attends.

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)

ACCS Schools consistently achieve higher than public, religious and other independent schools. On average, students who receive a classical Christian education achieve 186 points above the median score on SAT tests. They also demonstrate a higher confidence and knowledge when speaking on critical issues.

Furthermore, their reading, writing and math scores are significantly higher than the national average. Several nonpublic and parochial schools in Minnesota are now choosing to change to a classical curriculum.

Parent of Kindergarten Student

Veritas Academy prepared my child for college. At 16, he is already making an impression at the university where he is in the dual enrollment program. His biology professor said his papers are some of the best first time college papers she has ever seen. That is because Veritas prepares students well.

Parent of a High School Junior

When it came time to enroll our child in school, our family was torn. Do we do what everyone else does just because it is the norm? We knew a class of 20 plus students was not going to be a good fit for our child. Would the teacher love our child as w
