How & What?

Veritas Classical Grammar School (grades 1-4)will emphasize student exposure to and comprehension of core knowledge in literature, writing, informal grammar, vocabulary, history, geography, and fine arts. The Veritas Grammar School curriculum incorporates methods developed by Charlotte Mason, including narration, memorization, picture study and sketching. Weekly assignments will guide the student and parents in preparation for the next week's class.

At Veritas Classical Preparatory School (grades 5-12), all subjects are taught from a distinctively biblical worldview. The curriculum integrates history (world and American), literature (classical, American, British), composition, grammar, study skills, logic, and critical thinking. Students will begin studying Latin, and at the high school level, will also study Greek for one year. Each week, the student will receive an assignment sheet delineating the work required in each subject area.
