Our family loves Veritas! The teachers are just wonderful and the curriculum is outstanding! Smaller classroom sizes and very little screen-time allow the students to focus on their academics. There is strong parental involvement and a family-focused atmosphere.

This is our family's third year at #VCAchesapeake and it has been a great home for us. We often feel like this small, diverse school is the best kept secret in Chesapeake. My husband and I are both educators and care deeply about the caliber of people delivering instruction and the curriculum taught. We love that this is a diverse classical Christian school. Other colleagues agree and have also enrolled their children here. So far, our child's teachers have been UVA and William and Mary grads. The main administrators have both been in education for over 40 years. The K's both UNC-Chapel Hill grads with advanced degrees from Regent. They are passionate, mission-oriented scholars and athletes. They are invested in seeing your child thrive and are hands-down the best part of the school. We are so thankful that we found this school when we did. We love the new 1832 Elbow Rd. location and love the whole #VCAchesapeake community.

My nephew attends Vetitas, and we absolutely love the school. He was pulled out of a neighboring school due to experiencing bullying and racism, and found a home at Veritas. Very diverse culture. Very welcoming to students who might not look the way others do. My sister and brother-in-law have had the best year this year.
