Save the Date for Paideia Week
Paideia Week is held each summer to equip, educate, and inspire the Veritas community, and attendance is required for new students, families, and faculty/staff. Our purpose is to create an ideal atmosphere while connecting you with people who share the same passion as you to strengthen your family and raise your children in the paideia of the Lord. The lessons you learn, the advice you take in, the friendships you deepen, and the new relationships you form will leave you (re-)oriented, (re-)energized, (re-)connected, and (re-)inspired. We pray you will leave full of zeal for the Lord, your family, and our upcoming school year!

What is Paideia?
Paideia is the ongoing transmission of a cultural heritage of goodness, truth and beauty by impressing those values upon each generation, through discipline and instruction, with the telos (purpose, end, goal) of creating excellence and virtuous minds, body and souls. In short, Paideia is the disciplined crafting of a man—the whole man—in excellence and virtue.
