The Family at the Center

 

At Veritas Classical School it is our belief that parents are ultimately responsible before God for the education of their children. This education includes an upbringing that will impart to them basic knowledge, give them the tools needed for self-discovery, and plant in them a thirst for truth and understanding. The parents will always be the most important influence toward academic and spiritual growth in their children.

Furthermore, we believe that each child should have the opportunity to learn truth from a scriptural perspective and evaluate philosophies from a biblical worldview. The Veritas program is designed to meet the unique needs of home schooled students and their families without compromising their own goals or autonomy. 

 

More About the Program...

In the younger grades our emphasis is on student exposure to and comprehension of core knowledge in literature, writing, grammar, vocabulary, history and geography, and fine arts. Our teachers incorporate methods developed by Charlotte Mason, including narration, memorization, picture study, and sketching. Weekly assignments will guide the student and parents in preparation for the next week’s class. 

When students gather with their peers as a class once each week, they are guided by an experienced educator through the integrated humanities curriculum. At home throughout the week, parents and students will be able to refer to the textbooks in order to complete assignments and move broader and deeper into the material presented in class. The teachers are available by phone and email during the week if questions arise. 

As students advance to the upper grades, the curriculum continues to integrate history (world and American), literature (classical, American, and British), composition and rhetoric, grammar and vocabulary, study skills, critical thinking and formal logic, and Latin as a foreign language. All subjects are taught from a distinctively biblical world view.

Once a week, Students participate in a combined grade level classroom that allows them to interact with peers and promotes classroom discussion and group projects. Students take home an assignment sheet delineating the work required in each subject area before the next class day

Our academic program has been created to challenge students to think critically and grow in their knowledge of humanities through reading, writing, rigorous study, special projects, and presentation with the integration of biblical truth in all subjects. We welcome all students who are willing to apply themselves to the best of their abilities. 

Our humanities classes meet on Wednesdays and math & science classes meet on Thursdays from 9 am – 2 pm at Woodland Hill Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama.
