A classical education is a liberal arts education, meaning it is broad in its scope, taking into consideration how each discipline is intertwined with the others. A liberal arts education provides the student with the skills necessary to pursue any topic with relative ease because they have acquired the tools of learning. They know how to think and analyze various subjects and how to present what they know in an understandable and persuasive manner. The tools of learning in the classical education model are acquired through the implementation of the Trivium, or the first three of the seven liberal arts: grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric.

Classical Education at Veritas

The classical method of instruction is practiced in all classrooms at Veritas. Emphasis is placed on grammar, the fundamental facts and rules of each subject; logic, the ordered relationship of particulars in each subject; and rhetoric, the eloquent and persuasive expression of the grammar and logic of each subject.

Above all, our highest goal is to provide a rigorous educational environment that challenges our students to live and think from a Christian worldview.
