What We Believe
Veritas Academy is a distinctly Christian community dedicated to fulfilling our mission:
To partner with Christian parents to provide their children with a classical Christian education for the lifelong pursuit of wisdom and virtue in the service of Jesus Christ for the glory of God. Our collaborative approach integrates professional instruction with parent-mentored study and discipleship to cultivate genuine faith in Christ, godly virtue, and excellence in academics and workmanship.
Veritas is distinguished by its commitment to teaching and practicing those things that the Bible proclaims as good, true, and beautiful, and in doing so, fostering ideals that lead to human flourishing and are consistent with a Biblical worldview. This commitment informs our moral, ethical, and behavioral standards, which when observed, have a profound impact on our lives—from the meditations of our hearts to the work of our hands and the words we speak. It shapes our culture, informing the things we pursue, nurture, and celebrate as well as the things we renounce, avoid, and pray to be delivered from. It becomes the how and what of our shared lives as a community seeking to equip families to learn and live out the glorious, historic, and orthodox truths of the Christian faith.
Our desire to be a God-honoring community requires that we develop and affirm mutual understandings. We seek to promote Christian freedom without becoming libertine and to promote responsibility without encouraging the bondage of legalism. This is a daunting task, but neither the challenge in the undertaking nor the imperfections in the result should deter us from establishing necessary and reasonable expectations. It is our long-held aim to cultivate the ethos echoed by the Lutheran theologian Meldenius: “In essentials unity, in nonessentials diversity, and in all things charity.” It is with this heart and mind that we share the following Statements to outline the beliefs, understandings, and expectations for members of the Veritas community.
