5.00 (3 reviews)
- Centrally located in the Bellaire area of Houston, Veritas Christian Academy serves students from three years old through the eighth grade.
- Rooted in our Christian faith and grounded in the love of learning itself, Veritas offers a challenging, well rounded, liberal arts program of study that nurtures the growth of every academic discipline.
- Small class sizes allow our students to learn at an accelerated pace.
- Our primary objective is to enable each student to reach their full potential in Christ.
- Veritas serves as an extension of the Christian home, actively seeking to involve parents in every phase of the student's development.
- We believe and teach that children must learn how to live before they are asked to make a living, and seek to build character before they strive to build a career.
- In this aim we will shape lives that will shape the future.
- To accomplish our task, we seek students who are eager to learn and willing to work; parents who are partners in our task; and educators who are lifelong learners, called and gifted to teach, prepared to match precept with example.
- Veritas is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).

Academic excellence, incredible caring and well educated teachers, a campus that has great future plans. This school is going from strength to strength. Solid leadership. Consecutive Blue Ribbon qualification from the US Dept of Education and 65-75% of all middle school students have qualified for Duke Tip Talented and Gifted programs.

Nestled in a lovely Bellaire neighborhood, Veritas has two kinds of families: those wanting rigorous academics who''d rather not sacrifice their Christian worldview, and those wanting a nurturing faith environment who end up delighted by how much kids learn. Taught using a classical model, our girls are mastering content in math, science, art, history, language. From the early memory work through middle school logic, our 7th grader already seems prepared for high school, (including sports.) Art, integrated with history, is a favorite with our 1st and 4th grader. No school is perfect, but my kids are loyal Rams.

We transferred to Veritas from another private school in the area, and we wish we had moved sooner. Veritas is the best combination of challenging academics and Christian foundation in the Houston area. The teachers are great! We love having a stellar fine arts program as well. Sports are continuing to grow and expand. We are a school on the grow!
