Quest for Excellence
Students at Veritas Academy are being intentionally prepared to lead with clarity and virtue. As an independent, classical Christian school that is not subsidized by any church, government, or religious organization, we have worked hard from very humble beginnings. We are on an earnest quest for excellence to equip young people with an exceptional education that will transform our world, beginning in Chisago County. Veritas Academy must acquire all funds for operations and capital improvements through tuition and fees, annual charitable contributions, and occasional capital campaigns. We follow the Independent School Financial Model where charitable giving finances enhancements to student and teacher programs.
Teacher Endowment Fund
Quality teachers build quality programs. To ensure the right teachers are retained, an endowment fund is needed. The fund will provide for faculty development and compensation that won’t depend on economic ups and downs from year to year. Multi-year plans depend on investment income to provide lasting support. Securing the future means BUILDING a Teacher Endowment Fund.

Veritas Academy is in the process of acquiring a building that will enable us to fulfill our long term dream of enrolling students from all over the world. With occupancy set for June 1, 2020, the new 100,000 sf building on 15+ acres of land will have the capacity to house up to 90 boarding students. With an onsite medical clinic, parents will rest assured that any necessary health concerns will be addressed immediately. This new prime location has high visibility and easy access for domestic students. Donations are BUILDING tangibly for Veritas Academy’s future.
Build our Capital Fund
Doing without government funding is a financial sacrifice for both the school and our students. It means that although Veritas Academy charges one of the lowest private school tuition rates around, scholarships are still necessary for many students. More than 50% of our students are scholarship recipients, which means that faculty, staff, and other donors make sacrifices to ensure that every student who desires to attend Veritas Academy can do so. Automatic deposits feed into a pool which keeps these scholarships funded. Signing up for a monthly donation is a way of BUILDING the Scholarship Fund.
