Our children deserve better.... A statement of faith involving spirituality - understandable. A statement you must sign promising that you attend a church- intrusive and ridiculous. Veritas should strive to earn the opportunity for our amazing children to attend their school - not the other way around. No wonder we hear of so many leaving this school!

Veritas has been a great place for my family to strike a balance between homeschooling and classroom time. The model works well for my 4 children and allows our family a lifestyle that we are so thankful for. The academics are very strong. I love knowing my children are receiving a Classical education, while the UMS model is building into them excellent time- and energy-management skills. I know my children will be well-prepared for whatever comes their way. Veritas has been a great blessing to our family.

Veritas' model creates students with the perspective, passion, and intellectual arsenal to change the world for the glory of God. Its University Model approach prepares students for the time-management and work expectations of college, and its Classical Christian Model provides a forever-underestimated emphasis on a rhetorical understanding of worldviews and argumentation to equip students with the ability to defend their faith. As a graduate from the school (2012), I have seen it grow under the incorruptible character of the founding families and director Jef Fowler. They truly think of the future of each student in their leadership and educational policies - usually with the result of challenging students to push farther and reach higher for their goals. This school will revolutionize the private school model in central Texas. I am sure of it.

Veritas Academy is truly unique! The Christian foundation, classical approach, an University model has served our family well for what will be our 7th consecutive year. We now have one in each school, Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric, and are looking forward to what the new year brings! Veritas Academy has been an incredible blessing for our entire family. Go Defenders!

The academic, leadership, character, athletic, fine arts, and extra-curricular opportunities and instruction are excellent. We appreciate the solid vision and professionalism of the staff at Veritas. Our three kids (grades 12th, 9th, 4th) are well-rounded, independent, and confident. Veritas is a great training ground for them.

Teaching within a Christian worldview is so important to us as we not only want our children to excel academically, of which Veritas has high standards, but also within the worldview of what Christ wants us to do in our daily lives. Veritas provides both, while partnering with parents in the education of their children.

Veritas is an amazing community where the parents are supported in their primary role as teacher to their children. I am consistently saying that I feel like I should be paying tuition, as the school provides so many resources to parents in true partnership fashion. I also feel so in touch with my childrens' strengths, weaknesses, etc. and can provide one on one assistance to help them where they are struggling. I appreciate this gift of extra time with them to pour into them!

My 6th grade and pre-K daughters attend Veritas Academy. It has been a joy to learn alongside my children with its beautiful balance of classroom and home school instruction. We have been extremely pleased with the school's multisensory learning methods for early learning, rich curriculum for all classes, character development, parent/co-teacher support and education, and most of all, for the Christian worldview that is woven into the fabric of the entire school.

Our family has been with Veritas from its beginning. The coursework is challenging and relevant, and Veritas is continually finding ways to improve itself and its offerings. Our family couldn't be happier with Veritas Academy.

My wife and I love Veritas Academy becuase it is a Christian school and because it works well for our family. The UMS model works well for us because it allows us to spend more time with our children. It is great to be able to be part of a school where we can work along side faculty and other parents with similar values and beliefs. Veritas is a GREAT school.

My daughter transferred into Veritas as a Sophomore. This is her second year now and she really loves it. It is a very good challenge for her where she was not so challenged at her previous Christian School. The closeness to our house is also a big plus.

We love this school. The students are challenged academically and the teachers want the students to learn. My children have great friends at this school and because of the family oriented culture we know our children's friends and their families. That is important when you have teenagers! The teachers and the leadership are great role models for the students and really work with families to partner with parents in raising their children.

We have a 3rd and 5th grader at Veritas. We homeschooled our oldest for a year and then switched to Veritas with its university model. We love it! The administration and faculty truly has a heart for our children. When issues arise, we work together to help our children achieve their best. The academics are challenging and there is great depth in the core subjects of language arts, math, history, and science. Our oldest loves history and we're so greatful that the curriculum is so rich and feeds his passion. We thoroughly enjoy our "home days" which generally include dad as he works from home. Our family is so blessed to have so much time together. We highly recommend Veritas!

We're very happy with the spiritual, academic and athletic training our children receive at the school. All three of our children go there, and our oldest was just accepted into Texas A&M University's College Of Biomedical Sciences, so we're thrilled.
