Veritas Classical Schools understand that parents are ultimately responsible before God for the education of their children. This education includes an upbringing that will teach them the basics of education and plant in them a thirst for knowledge and truth. It is their responsibility for the academic and spiritual nurturing of their children.
We believe that each child should have the opportunity to learn truth from a scriptural perspective and evaluate life’s philosophies from a biblical worldview. Veritas Classical Schools have been established to provide home schooled students with:
An integrated core curriculum in history, literature, composition, grammar, critical thinking, and vocabulary/language with regular assignments to outline the student's weekly work at home.
Accountability for completed assignments.
Teaching of advanced subjects with enrichment activities not frequently included in home school studies.
Evaluation of student's progress by experienced educators.
Weekly classroom peer interaction in an academic environment.
The purpose of Veritas Classical Schools is to help mold students into thinkers, young men and women who do not simply "regurgitate" the information they have been fed but rather who analyze, critique, and affect the world by applying biblical wisdom to their lives, families, and communities. Veritas Schools offer homeschooling families a unique complement to their home study programs by providing weekly classroom instruction with an emphasis on classical as well as traditional subjects taught from a distinct Christian perspective. It is our goal that Veritas students learn to THINK biblically and logically, not just to blindly memorize seemingly unrelated and irrelevant facts required to do "well" on tests. The Veritas student is taught to be a lifelong learner, to consistently evaluate and critique relevant issues, and to always seek to skillfully communicate his thoughts. All students at Veritas Schools learn factual and philosophical truth, learn to evaluate the messages they are receiving from the world around them, and learn to defend their beliefs in a persuasive manner.
