Why Veritas Academy Private School
Students at Veritas Academy are immersed in exceptional and challenging educational experiences. As a private school, we are able to create the environment for these experiences through a shared philosophy, smaller class sizes, committed teachers, and enrichment opportunities and extracurricular activities.
Veritas Academy utilizes a classical approach to education, the Trivium—Grammar, Dialetic and Rhetoric. We focus specifically on the two stages that correlate to the middle school and high school grades to help develop critical thinking skills and teach tools of learning in preparation for college.
"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)
Veritas Academy provides a biblically based curriculum and teaches subjects as parts of an integrated whole with the Scriptures at the center. Students learn the truth and relevancy of God’s word that will prepare them to proclaim and defend the faith.
He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (Acts 4:11, I Peter 2:6).
He prayed for his disciples and asked His Father to “sanctify them by your truth. Your word is truth.” (John 17:17).
We foster a vital partnership between the academy and the homeschool family. By following the commands of Scripture, parents and teachers create a climate in which students grow in knowledge, character, and faith.
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.”
As a Christian, college-preparatory school, we blend aspects of private and home schooling. Students meet on campus two or three days per week, and complete lessons at home on alternate days under the direction of professional teachers, with parents serving as co-teachers.
As a university model school, Veritas Academy offers one of the best values in private education in central Ohio when compared to traditional Christian schools. Many teachers work part-time, which provides for an affordable full-time and part-time student tuition.
