I graduated from Veritas after being there for eight years and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I received an excellent education there and, thanks to the efforts of their wonderful teaching staff, I was was incredibly well prepared for college. The Veritas community taught me to think critically, work diligently, and love genuinely. I will always be grateful for my time there.
Both my sons graduated from Veritas and went on to attend Wheaton College. I really believe that a classical Christian education is an incredible gift to give your children. My boys not only gained an incredible college-prep education, but they learned HOW to learn and to think...not this "memorize for the test and move on" mentality. The teachers are all Christians and make Christ central in what they teach. The staff is amazing and cares about the whole student, not just how they do academically. Students are taught social skills, too - such as how to write a thank-you note, make a toast, what all the silverware is for, etc. - and also how to reflect Christ in all they do. And in all the classes, they make learning enjoyable. Lots of hands-on activities, field trips, songs, chants, public speaking, debates, etc. And the colleges are pursuing Veritas' graduates! In a recent newsletter, it said that the 18 members in the Class of 2013 received scholarship offers totaling more than $4.25 million - to schools like Stanford, Hillsdale, and Baylor! That speaks volumes to me... Veritas is a good investment all around.
Our children have attended this school for 3 years. The academic excellence that comes from this school is nothing short of impressive. While sports and extra activities are a bit limited the programs they do have are excellent. This school has 50% of it's population that travels from outside of Newberg, with some commutes as high as 1 hour (1 way), this speaks to the level of education they are offering. The teachers and leadership of the school really go above and beyond to address the heart of each child and how they react to one another. We find our children's hearts being shaped to seek God and to honor their family daily. We love it.
Can't get any better than a 100% college acceptance rate. Considering that's 10 years worth of graduates, it's a pretty amazing stat. Vertias students run rings around public school students in all areas, especially things like ethics and civic pride.
Veritas is a wonderful school and, like many parents, we've made financial sacrifices to enable our children to attend this school; it's been worth every penny. While the small size tends to limit some extracurricular activities, many students remain active outside of Veritas and the educational and social environment more than make up for this deficiency. Overall there simply is no comparison between the education my children are receiving at Veritas and what their peers are receiving at the arguably good local public schools.
