In the months leading up to our Big School Decision I heard a podcast that addressed the "Great School Debate" and weighed the options facing parents today. The podcast described their experience with a small Christian school as "a warm hug." As the mom of a six year old introvert with a strong desire to be with his parents all hours of the day, the idea of school being a "warm hug" was intriguing to me.From the moment I first observed the Veritas kindergarteners singing "Holy, Holy, Holy" on my first tour of the school, I knew this was the environment I wanted for my son. The structure, the excellent education, the emphasis on manners, and the solid Biblical worldview had me at hello. Knowing the teachers are not only the emotional version of a warm hug, but a spiritual one, too, helps me to rest a little easier. I can walk down the hall after kindergarten drop-off with confidence knowing my child is seen, cared for, prayed over, and loved. And when he needs it, hugged.

We have had a wonderful experience at Veritas! The classical model makes Veritas a very unique school in Lancaster County. As parents we are impressed by the amount of information our kids are able to learn and retain. More importantly, we appreciate the way teachers and administrators come alongside us to carry out the goals we have for our children. Building their character and preparing them to know and share Christ in this world.

Veritas Academy is a friendly, warm and welcoming school. Three of my children are thriving at Veritas. The teachers are especially knowledgeable and skilled, and beyond that, they care deeply for my children and help them work through life with Christ as their Helper. I love the quality education my kids are receiving in every subject, including broad History and Science in addition to the "3 Rs." Adding Bible, Latin, Music, and Art, Veritas does a great job as a Classical Christian school.
