Why Choose Veritas Academy?
We are Classical in Approach
We are committed to a classical approach to education.
The Classical approach is based on a system developed in antiquity. It consists of three stages and is generally referred to as the Trivium. We are committed to coming alongside parents in
teaching their children how
to learn, not just facts and figures. Modern education focuses on teaching subjects.
Classical educators focus on teaching students the tools of learning
in preparation for further study of subjects after high school. "For
the sole end of education is simply this: to teach men how to learn
for themselves; and whatever instruction fails to do this is effort
spent in vain." (Sayers, The Lost Tools of Learning)
We are Christian in Mission
We are committed to the fact that Classical Christian education is
historic, biblical education. Jesus Christ is the chosen and
precious cornerstone upon which classical Christian schools are
built. (Acts 4:11, I Peter 2:6). He said, “I am the way, the truth,
and the life.” He prayed for his disciples and asked His Father to
“sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” (John 17:17). For
education to be true, it must include Jesus Christ and acknowledge
the truth of Scripture. Classical Christian educators teach truth to
students and live truth before students by acknowledging that God’s
word is relevant to each subject and to every activity.
We are a Community in Purpose
We are a close-knit community of families seeking to faithfully obey
the commands of Scripture concerning the raising and educating of
our children. We seek to help parents obey
Paul’s instruction in Ephesians, “And you, fathers, do not provoke
your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and
admonition (the paideia, i.e., the rearing of a child,
training, discipline, and chastening) of the Lord.” We
understand that God gave authority and responsibility for raising
and teaching children to parents, not to schools. When children are
taught well and consistently by parents, churches, and schools, good
fruit is often borne in the lives of students.
