. . . about Veritas and Classical Education
Q.) Why Latin?
A.) Latin provides the foundation for the study of other languages, particularly English. Through the study of Latin students gain an understanding of language structure. It is through language that we communicate knowledge.  It is vital for Christians to be able to communicate the truths of God as effectively as possible.
Q.) How is a classical Christian education at Veritas different than most other schools, public or private?
A.) The actual books used are merely the tools of the classroom, used to achieve a carefully planned out program.  The program integrates all subjects with a Christian worldview as the point of integration.  Students are drawn into conversations in which they think critically and creatively.  The school day is more of a training or mentoring in all that it means to be a thinking Christian in this world.
Q.) What is wrong with the education provided by public and even some Christian schools? Why have they failed?
A.) Part of the problem is ideological and theological – if a school is committed to the ideas of humanistic modernity it will fail to provide the firm foundation of a God-centered worldview. Also, by trying to adhere to the fallacious notion of neutrality they violate the Biblical idea of sphere sovereignty – taking from the parents the responsibility of education. Due to the increasing pressure of the accreditation process and the accommodation to the world of Christian schools, some Christian schools have even failed at this, becoming little more than tamer versions of the public schools – albeit with Bible classes tacked on.

Q.) What should be the difference between a Classical Christian school and regular Christian school?
A.) There should be several differences: 1. Discipleship emphasis; 2. Moral philosophy integration in the curriculum; 3. Latin, Rhetoric, and the other disciplines of classical education to forge the thinking, and discerning skills necessary for a Biblical model of success; 4. Modeling servant leadership from the top down.  (George Grant)
Q.) How should history be taught, and why is it important?
A.)   Instead of a collection of dates and dead people, history should be the Biblical worldview taught by example. In other words, it must not be a social science but a moral philosophy. History should be taught for several reasons: 1. Because it is the primary way God teaches us (re: most of the Bible is history); 2. Because it is the telling of stories and we always learn best by way of narrative;       3. Because history includes every other subject and every other discipline and every other endeavor.  (George Grant)
Q.) Will Veritas be around for my child’s entire education?
A.) We have never considered closing our doors. We are small; there’s no denying that. But, it would not matter if we had but a dozen students; we are utterly convinced of the need and call of this ministry. The Lord has repeatedly shown us His hand upon this ministry and we will be here as long as He continues to bring children to teach.
Q.) Does Veritas teach a specific doctrine?
A.) We are founded upon the doctrine of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. A more complete Statement of Faith is available through the link to the left or in the school office. We believe that God has given the responsibility of educating children to their parents and therefore, we refer any divisive or controversial issues back to the home.
