School Notes:

At Veritas, we seek to challenge children individually at all levels and teach them how to learn by using the centuries-old and well-proven classical method.

Much of Western Civilization – our culture, laws, history, and language – has been built on the heritage of the ancient Hebrews, Greeks, and Romans. For an education to have depth, certain aspects of this heritage need to be studied, understood, and appreciated.

Early Christians developed the classical teaching method, which revolved around what were called the Seven Liberal Arts. This method was utilized through the Middle Ages and into the early 1900’s, proving to be remarkably successful.

By adopting an updated version of the “Trivium,” the name given to the first three of these Seven Liberal Arts, the teachers at Veritas are better able to pass on the invaluable “tools of learning” that built the foundation of education throughout this amazing period of history.

The three parts of the Trivium are:
Grammar – memorizing the basic facts of a subject
Logic – understanding the relationship of those facts to each other; and
Rhetoric – knowing how to effectively communicate this knowledge to others.

At Veritas, the Trivium model is applied to every academic subject through various teaching techniques and activities carefully related to a child’s age and stage of development.
