Student Growth

Undeniable transformation happens during these years. Students enter as older children and exit as young adults. Our students grow into independent learners as their time on campus increases, and they begin to take more responsibility for their studies.

Our teachers work to nurture the natural curiosity that students in the School of Logic possess. Students begin to pay attention to cause and effect, to organize knowledge into succinct patterns, and to recognize and investigate relationships between those patterns. In the classroom, teachers dive deeper into subjects and explore the how and the why of content, while also offering unique opportunities for hands-on instruction across our 97-acre campus.

Curriculum Overview

As students transition from Grammar School into the School of Logic, they learn to logically organize knowledge into meaningful arguments while growing in their pursuit of wisdom and virtue. An emphasis is placed on developing the skills necessary for increased independent study and time management. Artful and persuasive communications skills are beginning to be developed intentionally in order to prepare Veritas students to memorize and present a 20-minute thesis during the spring of their Senior year.

Parent Partnership

Throughout their schooling, parents play an active part in their child’s education. In the School of Logic, that role transitions to a Guide for Dependent Study and becomes more hands-off than the co-teacher role in Grammar School. Students in these grades are at a dependent age and must learn disciplined study habits through positive encouragement and the student’s growing awareness of personal consequences.

Additional Offerings & Extracurriculars

Fine Arts & Athletics

Beginning in 5th Grade students are invited to participate in fine arts and school-sponsored athletics. With offerings expanding each grade, students are encouraged to be a part of a team sport and develop a skill that suits their interests. Fine Arts provides a wide variety of paths for student learning and growth. Offerings include theatre, art, choir, band, percussion and dance. These classes are part of the electives curriculum and are taught during the school day. Athletic practices generally take place before school and vary with each season/sport. This scheduling provides students with the opportunity to explore both Fine Arts and Athletics during the same school year. 

Study Essentials

Study Essentials is offered for 5th and 6th Grade students, providing extra support as they transition into more independent management of their learning process and grow their study and organizational skills.

Outdoor Recreation & Nature Studies

In 8th Grade, an additional outdoor recreation and nature study course, focusing on outdoor exploration, observation, and survival skills is available, providing students with the shared experiencing of unplugging together and focusing on God's creation.

Scripture Memory

Scripture Memory is an important exercise as we strive to hide God's word in our hearts and reflect upon these truths, both in class and at home. Our student body is unified through memory of the same scripture passages each semester. Focusing on the same passage also provides the opportunity for the whole family to study and discuss scripture together at home.
