    My young kids love this school. They have made really sweet friends and they are learning a ton! We really like the classical approach because it emphasizes mastering traditional knowledge such as history, geography, scripture, grammar, phonics, art, science, math, and music. The memory period is very effective for teaching memorized material through song, and there are many fun special holidays, events, and field trips, as well as swim team/swim lessons and school play!

    The middle and high school are also amazing! The humanities/omnibus courses are really unique in combining classic literature with history, religion, politics, and philosophy--so it's all combined in a way that connects and make sense. Students read the primary texts from that time period rather than just reading a vague summary in a typical textbook. A great preparation for college and a great way to gain wisdom for life!

    I’m very saddened By a recent One Star Review! And angry. I recently graduated from Veritas, and it was a wonderful Christian environment. It’s very ironic, that the individual who wrote it, Faith Clark, claims the School was just in it for money: Because her and her family were in the school for three years and everyone knows they never paid a cent. Also the school has helped so many families financially, including one who’s dad just died. It’s a slap in the face to the school to attend it for that many years not pay and then claim it’s in it for the money. Her father was a teacher; a very poor one. Shame on her for even writing this! He never taught before, and should never been hired. I almost left the school because of her father, after he accused me of cheating, and only stayed when the administration took action to help me out and remove him from teaching classes he was obviously not qualified. I feel sorry for her. She must be bored with her new school!
    We have found a home at Veritas! A wonderful multi-cultural Global School, with campuses in Virginia, Washington DC, China and Hungary. We are a military family. When we moved to the area I was sure we would have many fantastic choices for Christian high school education, but I did not find that to be true. We were looking for strong integration of Biblical truth throughout the curriculum and the lives of the faculty and staff, excellent academics that could meet or exceed the already high-standard of we demanded of our kids, a full complement of activities and sports, caring faculty and administration, and a beautiful campus to serve as a respite of the "crazy busy" of the Virginia Beach area. But as we searched for options, only one school could meet these standards- Veritas. Our children are academically ahead of their local peers, and are learning to live and breathe their faith as well. Additionally, graduates attend the top universities in America.
