Educational Philosophy

Our philosophy

Ver­i­tas Clas­si­cal Schools (VCS) acknowl­edges that chil­dren are a gift from the Lord. They are giv­en to par­ents who are com­mand­ed to be faith­ful stew­ards of God’s good gift. As such, par­ents bear imme­di­ate respon­si­bil­i­ty for the aca­d­e­m­ic and spir­i­tu­al nur­tur­ing of their chil­dren – nur­tur­ing which nec­es­sar­i­ly includes instruc­tion in the philo­soph­i­cal, his­tor­i­cal, and the­o­log­i­cal foun­da­tions of the Chris­t­ian faith.

VCS fur­ther acknowl­edges that this process nec­es­sar­i­ly includes instruc­tion in what truth is, how to iden­ti­fy it, and how to detect false­hood — all of which is pur­sued with­in the con­text of a com­pre­hen­sive Chris­t­ian under­stand­ing of God and his creation.

Our mission

The sacred mission of Veritas is to serve Christian families through the provision and promotion of Classical Christian Education. Our endeavors are not simply directed towards the dissemination of knowledge but towards the cultivation of virtue, as guided by the Holy Scripture and the traditions of Christian scholarship. Moreover, our vision is the restoration of classical Christian thought and practice within the halls of education. We aspire to resurrect the rich heritage of the Christian intellectual tradition and to rekindle the spirit of classical Christian inquiry, thereby guiding the minds and bodies of our students and their families towards a deeper understanding of God's creation and their role within it.

Veritas pro­vides home schooled stu­dents:

  • An inte­grat­ed core cur­ricu­lum in…
    • Bible, theology, and apologetics
    • Christian values and ethics
    • Philosophy, logic, and rhetoric
    • History, lit­er­a­ture, grammar, and composition
  • Teacher direct­ed assign­ments designed to orga­nize and out­line stu­dents’ work at home
  • Account­abil­i­ty for com­plet­ed assignments
  • Eval­u­a­tion of student’s progress by expe­ri­enced educators
  • Week­ly class­room inter­ac­tion with peers
  • Advanced sub­jects with enrich­ment activ­i­ties that may be dif­fi­cult to include in a home­school environment

Our daughter wasn’t fitting into the traditional, one-size-fits-all school system. Veritas allows for deeper study rather than seven classes a day and has better prepared our daughter for her next step into college.
