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.
