Frequently Asked Questions


   
Is Veritas Academy a homeschool co-op group?
No, we are a private school that comes alongside homeschooling families to help them provide their children with a quality classical Christian education.

Is Veritas Academy associated with any particular denomination or church?

Veritas students come from a variety of Christian backgrounds and churches.  The school doesn't receive funding from any denomination, church, or ministry organization.

Is Veritas Academy a non-profit organization?

Yes, we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  All donations beyond tuition costs are tax deductible.

Do only children from homeschooling families attend Veritas Academy?

The majority of our students come from homeschooling families, but students may occasionally come to Veritas from a public or private school.  Once enrolled, students are considered to be homeschooled and parents must be leading the child's education and meet all state legal requirements.  Homeschooling parents are required, by law, to notify their local public school superintendents of their intent to teach their children at home.

What if I've never homeschooled before?

Homeschooling requires a high level of parental commitment and involvement, even more so if the child is young.  While you are responsible for the oversight of your child's education (i.e. completion of assignments and homework, proctoring exams, purchasing texts, etc.) Veritas exists to support families like yours and provide structure and accountability for the courses in which your child enrolls.
Do students attend classes every weekday?
Students attend classes at the Veritas campus two to three days per week depending on the courses taken.  They are expected to be completing coursework five days per week, including teacher-directed assignments and exams that may be taken at home.  We follow a "university model" of education that teaches your child time management and study skills that will help them tremendously if they choose to attend college.
Is there a minimum course load a student must take?
Students may enroll in as few or many courses as their schedules will allow.  Students are either considered full-time (4 or more 50 minute classes) or part-time (fewer than four classes).  Discounted tuition is offered to full time students, and they are also given priority if classes reach their enrollment limits. More information may be found on our admissions page.
How much does it cost to attend Veritas Academy?
Veritas Academy offers one of the best values in private education in central Ohio.  Tuition varies depending on the status of the student (full time or part time student).  This is reviewed on the admissions link of this site and we encourage you to call the school office with any questions you may have.
Are scholarships available to defray tuition costs?
Veritas is piloting a scholarship program for students whose family are able to demonstrate financial need and academic potential.  We also offer discounted tuition to the children of Christian pastors.
Are uniforms required for students?
Yes, we have a uniform policy.  Details on the policy are covered in the Parent-Student handbook, and details are available from our school office.  There are several educational apparel stores in the local area that offer a good value.  Click here for a list of requirements from the Educational Outfitters web site.
When can I enroll my child at Veritas Academy?
Students may be enrolled at any time during the school year, but some evaluation and assessment testing may be needed to determine placement level.
Are students who attend Veritas Academy eligible to participate in Ohio's PSEO program?
Yes, we have many juniors and seniors who have qualified to take college level courses at no cost through the state's PSEO program.  To be eligible students must be in their junior or senior year, be in good academic and disciplinary standing, and have been a student at Veritas Academy for at least one full academic year.
My child has special needs that require an Individual Education Plan (IEP).  Does Veritas Academy offer this?
As a small religious private school supplementing the education of homeschooled students, Veritas is not required to comply with the IEP requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  Veritas is not equipped with the expertise to provide for the needs of special needs children and cannot develop IEPs for their students.  Homeschool families can seek assistance from the public schools to develop an IEP for their child, but Veritas is not equipped or obligated to create or comply with an IEP.
