Paideia Conference & Camp

Paideia Conference & Camp


Orientation (Pre-Conference)

All new students, along with all students entering grades K, 5 & 9, will attend Student Orientation during the week of Paideia. Additionally, all new co-teachers and faculty will attend Teacher's Orientation on the same day. Camp leader training and the SR House Induction Ceremony will take place during the afternoon as well.

Paideia Conference

The Paideia Conference is an annual training held each August to further the classical education of Veritas Academy's teachers and parents. The Conference is FREE for parents of currently enrolled students at Veritas, and participation is required of families and teachers new to Veritas Academy. All parents are strongly encouraged to attend -- particularly the co-teaching parent of returning students. 

Paideia Camp

The Paideia Camp is an event for all Veritas students. The Camp occurs on the Veritas campus while parents are attending the Paideia Conference. Although Paideia Camp is FREE for all students, registration is necessary for an accurate headcount and t-shirt ordering. 

During Camp, K-6 students visit stations throughout the day with our 7-12 grade students leading them in activities. Not only are great friendships fostered, but so are relationships between the school levels: we're all Defenders!
