Admissions Process for Siblings
Sibling applicants receive priority consideration and should apply for the upcoming school year by early January. 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. After all, siblings make the best Defenders!
Sibling applications open each fall via the School Memo and can be accessed by logging into Family Portal Please be sure to follow this helpful Checklist as you begin and submit the Sibling Application to ensure you 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 must be submitted by the 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.
Application Deadline: Apr 19, 2022
Placement Testing: as scheduled on Apr 21-22
After prayerfully considering each of your children's needs for education, complete a Sibling Application for Admission. You will login through Family Portal to begin and submit an application, including the $100 application fee, and the online portal will help you track additional application items (e.g., school records and recommendations, student writing samples and reading lists, student and academic references, etc.).
Instructions for Completing a Sibling Application
After submitting an online application, our admissions department will be in touch to schedule testing. Students applying for Kindergarten will participate in a readiness screening while students in grades 1-12 will complete Placement Testing, with those applying for grades 5-12 also participating in a Shadow Day. Testing results will be evaluated and shared with parents within a few weeks, as they may influence student placement and/or admission.
Admissions decisions will be emailed on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, after all prior steps of the admissions process have been completed. Following an acceptance offer, you will be invited to enroll your newest Defender(s) with currently enrolled siblings via our annual (re-)enrollment and course request processes. Additional enrollment information will be communicated in the School Memo.
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 with Enrollment. Please be prepared to submit your current Tax Return and W-2 form(s) as part of your TA application.
Order books, uniforms, etc. and submit medical records
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 Paideia Week.
