Student Life

At Veritas Christian Academy, every effort is made to nurture the whole child – mind, body, and spirit.

 

“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely, and may your spirit, and soul, and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He will also bring it to pass.”  (I Thessalonians 5:23-24) 

 

Each student is an integral part of the community and his or her unique gifts and abilities contribute to the vitality of the student body.  Prayer undergirds our ministry to these precious students and is a part of daily life at Veritas Christian Academy.  Convocation is held at the beginning of the year to facilitate prayer with the Veritas family, and faculty and staff pray with one another and with students and classes when appropriate.  We are grateful that God has heard our prayers and has abundantly blessed Veritas. 

 

As expressed in our Philosophy:  “Prayer is essential to this Christian institution, and we solicit the prayers of all who are involved with its Mission so that the unity of the Spirit and the peace of the Lord will be manifest in all our activities.”  The teachers’ dedication to the Christian faith shines through in their everyday activities.  Coaches take the time to have team devotions, to share prayer requests, and to lead team prayer.   A solid and mature commitment to faith in Christ is required of all teachers, administrators, and support personnel at Veritas Christian Academy.  Our teachers and staff evidence love for the Lord and attitude of grace towards our students.  Students are treated with respect and love.

The VCA House

System

The Veritas House System incorporates all rhetoric aged students within four different houses.  The houses will grow in community with each other by competing in challenges against other houses by working together throughout the year.  This will give a natural place for friendships to grow and opportunities for leaders to lead inside each house, and for students of all high school ages to work together building the pride of the house.

 

Our house names derive from our rich tradition in studying epic poets such as Homer, Virgil, Dante and Milton.  Each house has a cardinal virtue attached to its name which reflects the nature of the poet’s writings and calls us to contemplate further the relevance in our own houses and lives.  Each house created a motto, and incorporates its name and colors inside of its crest.

The houses are called the following: Homer house of Fortitude, Virgil house of Temperance, Dante house of Prudence, Milton house of Justice.
