College Advising at Veritas Academy
In alignment with our school's mission, the Academic and College Advising program seeks to support Veritas families and their students as they prepare for higher education. The college advisors commit to give each student individual guidance throughout the college preparation process and to support alumni in their pursuits beyond Veritas.
Just as each student is unique, our goal is to provide support that is individualized for each student's specific priorities and goals. We advocate for a college application process that is thoughtful, exploratory, and reflective (and dare we say enjoyable?). We walk students and families through a four-year curriculum, and meet individually with each family multiple times throughout their four years in the School of Rhetoric. Additionally, we seek to educate parents and students with unbiased, objective information in order that they would feel well-equipped and confident in their post-secondary plans.
Students will continue their education for the glory of God in a context that best fits their unique talents, priorities, interests, and goals.
