Steps to Apply
The 2024-2025 Admissions Season Has Begun!
Admissions for the 2024-2025 school year have officially opened! If you are interested in receiving communication about our fall Open House and learning more about the admissions process, please fill out an inquiry and RSVP for the Open House on Jan 9. If you have additional questions, please schedule a call with our Admissions Office.
Tuesday, January 9, at 6:30pm
Open Houses begin each fall and provide an opportunity for parents to hear directly from school administrators while touring campus and receiving an overview of how our academics, schedule, and partnership may be a great fit for their family.
Fri, Jan 26, 2024
After attending an Open House and prayerfully considering your family’s needs for education, we invite you to complete an Application for Admission. After submission of the application, families will be contacted with next steps, including Placement Testing and a Family Interview.
As we get to know one another better, the following books/resources provide valuable insight into Veritas Academy and our heart for discipleship and education. Furthermore, affirmation of our Statements on Faith, Life & Conduct is a prerequisite for the submission of an application.
- Veritas Academy Statements on Faith, Life, & Conduct
- Veritas Informational Packet (provided at Open House)
- An Introduction to Classical Education, A Guide for Parents by Christopher A. Perrin, M.Div., PH.D.*
- Free to Parent by Ellen Schuknecht and Erin MacPherson*
*These books are available for purchase from the school office, at an Open House, and online. You may begin the required parental reading at any time; however, it must be completed by both parents prior to scheduling a family interview.
For Students (Grades 8–12)
- So Your Parents are Thinking of Sending You to a Classical Christian School by Joshua Gibbs
The required student reading is for all students applying to enter Grades 8–12 and is a very practical overview of what makes classical, Christian school and education different from other schools. The pamphlet is available at an Open House and must be completed prior to a family interview.
Following the submission of an application, you will be invited to schedule a family interview. The family interview provides important time for you to ask questions and for us to get to know one another better while discussing the compatibility of your family’s goals with the school’s methods and philosophy. The applicant(s) and both parents are required to be in attendance, but your whole family is welcome to attend the interview.
NOTE: Family Interviews are generally 45 minutes long and are scheduled during the school day. Depending on when your application is received, your family interview may be before or after placement testing.
Placement Testing for Applicant
Students applying for PreK and Kindergarten will participate in a readiness assessment, while students in Grades 1–12 will complete Placement Testing, with those applying for Grades 5–12 also participating in a Shadow Day. Testing is held on select weekdays at Veritas Academy, and results help guide the placement and/or admission of students. In some cases, an academic meeting may be scheduled to review testing results.

Admissions decisions will be emailed in early March 2024, after all prior steps of the admissions process have been completed.
If we do not have openings in your child’s grade level but believe your student and family are a good fit for our school model, we will keep your child’s application active until the start of our annual Paideia Week Conference in August and let you know if any seats become available before that time. The wait pool is unranked and begins anew each admissions season, with students needing to reapply for the next school year if desired.
Applications received after the dates listed above will be processed on a rolling, space-available basis. Wait pool applications may be accepted after a grade is filled.
Following an offer of acceptance, you will be invited to enroll and submit course requests for the upcoming school year.
Enrollment communicates your decision to accept our offer and officially reserves a seat for the upcoming school year.
Enrollment is due in March, and includes payment of the annual family (re-)enrollment and setting up a FACTS Tuition & Management account.
