Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Guidelines for Admission
Veritas seeks students who can contribute to and benefit from the school's academic program. Students are selected for admission to the school on the basis of academic potential, school achievement, interest in and readiness for the school's programs, willingness to contribute to the school community, and appropriateness of the match between the family and the school. Selection is also based on the completed application, the results of the admissions assessment or testing, teacher evaluations, and previous academic record. Veritas serves Christian families prepared and motivated to meet the requirements of a rigorous academic program.
 
 
Application for admission to Veritas is a non-refundable fee of $250 for the first applicant and $150 for the second applicant. Additional sibling applicants beyond that will only be charged a $50 application fee.

Enrollment Process
Once the application process has been completed and the Admissions Committee has reviewed your application, you will receive a letter from the Admissions Committee informing you of the final decision. If a student is accepted for enrollment at Veritas, an Enrollment Contract will be provided for you.

 

Before the first day of school, parents are encouraged to read the Parent/Student Handbook (available on our website). They are expected to read it carefully and discuss it with their children. Continued attendance at Veritas is dependent on every student satisfactorily meeting the educational and behavioral expectations in the handbook. Failure to do so may result in the child's status becoming probationary.
