Paideia Conference & Camp

Veritas Orientation and Paideia Conference & Camp

Veritas Orientation (Monday)

Orientation is the "pre-conference" track to the Paideia Conference and is an essential time for NEW students, co-teachers, and teachers to orient themselves to Veritas Academy. Orientation is generally held on Monday during the first week of August.

Paideia Conference & Camp (Tuesday & Wednesday)

The Paideia Conference is an annual training held each summer (generally on Tuesday & Wednesday during the first week of August) to further the classical education of and inspire Veritas Academy’s co- teachers and teachers. Adults will attend keynote presentations and breakout sessions of their choice, all focused on helping us grow together in the teaching and training of our children's/student's hearts and minds. Students have their own track and will participate in Paideia Camp either as a "camper" (grades K-6) or a "volunteer" (grades 7-12).
