You will often hear, "Parents are primary, but not solitary," as a key motto at Veritas Academy (from Dr. Turner's Character Driven College Preparation). To ensure you are not walking the Veritas journey alone, we invite you to engage in the Defender Community and be a part of all the great things happening within our school.

Please click on "Categories" for calendar cateogries and know that we actively keep this calendar up-to-date as the primary event calendar for Veritas. For more detailed information, please read the weekly School Memo and check the school calendar in ParentsWeb.
