Admissions Process for Siblings
Sibling applicants receive priority consideration and should apply for the upcoming school year prior to December. While we seek to make the most appropriate admissions decision for each student, meaning sibling admission is not automatic, it is always our desire to bless families by serving as many of their children as possible. Afterall, siblings make the best Defenders!
Step 1: Application Process
Sibling applications open each fall via the School Memo and can be accessed by logging into Family Portal. Please be sure to begin and submit the Sibling Application for Admission (as opposed to the New Student Application for Admission) in order to receive the reduced application fee of $100. Parents will need to periodically login to Family Portal to check the status of required supplemental forms (e.g., school records and recommendations, student writing samples and reading lists, etc.).
Please note that Sibling Applications should be submitted by the Early-Bird deadline to receive priority consideration and an admissions decision prior to (re-)enrollment for current students. Also, the sibling application may be used as an update, when appropriate.
After submitting an online application, our admissions department will be in touch to schedule testing. Students applying for PreK and Kindergarten will participate in a readiness screening while students in grades 1-12 will complete Placement Testing. Testing results will be evaluated and shared with parents within a few weeks, as they may influence student placement and/or admission.
Step 2: Admissions Decision
Admissions decisions will be emailed after all prior steps of the admissions process have been completed and prior to Veritas Academy's annual (Re-)Enrollment and Course Request Processes. Following an acceptance offer, you may enroll newly accepted students while re-enrolling sibling(s), streamlining this process for your entire family.
For siblings who apply via the Spring or Summer Deadline, you can expect to receive an admissions decision 3-4 weeks following placement testing.
Following an acceptance offer, you may enroll newly accepted students while re-enrolling sibling(s), which streamlines this process for your entire family.
Online Course Requests
Course Request submissions follow Online Enrollment and are needed for each enrolled student in PreSchool-12th Grade. To help with this process, families will have access to the Course Catalog, planning sheets for each school level, preliminary course schedules, and additional resources. Keep in mind that courses with limited seats, such as electives and higher-level math and science courses, will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis, so all requests will be date- and time-stamped.
Academic Advising for Incoming 9th-12th Grade Students
Prior to completing Course Requests, all new 9th-12th grade students will schedule an advising appointment to discuss graduation requirements/credits and course planning for the upcoming school year.
Tuition Assistance (TA) is an important part of Veritas Academy and allows us to help make a classical, Christian, university-model education affordable to families. TA applications are processed through FACTS Grant & Aid, an unbiased third-party application service and are generally due on the same day as Enrollment and Course Requests. Please be prepared to submit your current Tax Return and W-2 form(s) as part of your TA application and look for further details in the School Memo. If you have questions at any point, please reach out to Accounting@VeritasAcademy.net.
Step 3: Prepare for the School Year
The beginning of summer is a good time to prepare for the upcoming school year by purchasing school uniforms and textbooks and scheduling doctor’s appointments for immunizations, screenings (vision, hearing & scoliosis), and sports physicals. You should have all your books purchased and all health/medical records submitted before New Family Orientation.
All new K-12 students, along with all K, 5th, and 9th grade students, will attend New Student Orientation & Paideia in August.
