Student Life

IMG_2464.JPG

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

At the heart of Rhetoric School’s student life is our house system.  Inspired by the English model, our students and faculty are divided into four houses, each named for a timelessly important poet- Homer, Virgil, Dante, and Milton.  Each house is associated with one of the four cardinal virtues- fortitude, temperance, prudence, and justice, respectively.


The goal of the house system is to foster camaraderie and cultivate virtue among the student body through regular activities of healthy competition and fellowship, including weekly house challenges, a poetry contest, a talent show, an annual Pi Day celebration, and many other opportunities through the year.  The house system allows for friendships to form across grade levels and personal interests and promotes student leadership, as each house is led by a senior Prefect chosen by the teachers and a senior Tribune chosen by the students.
