First and foremost, Veritas exists to disciple students in the paideia of the Lord, to train the whole person to love the Lord with all their hearts, minds, and strength. Discipleship takes place as teachers mentor the students in the way they think about every subject and how they live it out, all from the perspective of God’s Word, in a way that reflects the truth, goodness, and beauty of God.
This discipleship is carried out through a “classical” model of education, which emphasizes the cultivation of wisdom and virtue in addition to knowledge and skill, and teaches students to think critically, not just to access information. By training them in the liberal arts of the trivium and the quadrivium, classical education produces students who are truly wise, virtuous, and free.
A godly community is both the means and the end of a true education. Education of the whole person requires a community of parents, teachers, friends, and pastors who will keep the student accountable. The student is loved, encouraged, and discipled to grow into a vital member of the body of Christ and a valuable citizen of the commonwealth.
