Summer Skills Camps for Schools of Logic & Rhetoric

Summer Skills Camps for Schools of Logic & Rhetoric

 

Veritas Academy is offering skills camps before the start of the 2018-2019 school year to help students in the Schools of Logic and Rhetoric brush up on their grammar, writing, and keyboarding skills!
