We train children to think clearly and listen carefully with discernment. Our students gain understanding and the ability to reason persuasively and articulate precisely.

This is our children’s fourth year attending Veritas. We have been very pleased with educational experience and Christian atmosphere. The small class sizes, individualized attention, and ability to meet each child’s academic needs drew us in. The teachers have all been wonderful! Each one has connected so well with the students. They really go the extra mile and we appreciate their dedication. The school’s organization/events could be preplanned better, Allowing more notice or more concrete details. For being a small school they do offer a variety of sports, clubs and activities. Every year we take part in the school play which comes together beautifully. Our cafeteria is restaurant quality meals. The children sit down to deliciously prepared meals, with a new variety each week. We joke we should have lunch dates there- we really should! All in all it is a well rounded school and we recommend it to everyone we know.

Veritas was an awesome experience for me as a student. I graduated a few years ago, and now see the fruit of all that the school sews into their students. I attended their old campus, which was small, but cozy. Everyone knew each other, and were encouraged by the administration to love one another, and never look at other people's differences negatively. We were encouraged to embrace our differences, and uphold one another, much like siblings (without the fighting, of course). I think thats what makes Veritas such a special experience. I know that they are now on a brand new beautiful campus in Chesapeake, and have opened a second campus in the Washington DC area, as well as international campuses in China and other countries. I'm amazed and proud of my alma mater. Mr. and Mrs. Elgut, and Mr. Keating, have done a great job! So happy for you all.
Congrats. to my old school for being the top school in Chesapeake and Norfolk. Saw this yesterday! I was a student of Mr. Elgut's many years ago, and would never had guessed the small school I attended would be international and receive the honors they have. I attended a school very close to Veritas for a number of years, and transferred to work with Mr. Elgut, who helped me finish and prepared me for college. I am very proud to be an alumni of Veritas, and so thankful for all of the help and guidance given to me. Love the Diversity Ranking!
