Summer Skills Camps for Schools of Logic & Rhetoric

 

Veritas Academy is offering skills camps before the start of the 2020-2021 school year to help students in the Schools of Logic and Rhetoric brush up on their grammar, writing, and keyboarding skills! While the camps are open to all Veritas students, they are highly encouraged--and sometimes required--for new students as they prepare to transition into the classical model.
