MISSION

Veritas is an independent Christian school in the classical tradition that prepares students for lives of service and learning through academic excellence, character development, biblical literacy, and intentional engagement opportunities.

OVERVIEW

Established in 2002, Veritas Christian Academy is a Pre-K to 8th grade co-ed, independent Christian school in  Bellaire, Texas, on the southwest side of metropolitan  Houston. Visitors to the school appreciate the beautiful campus, the warm welcome from the faculty and staff, and  how engaged students are in their work. Visitors recognize the partnership of school and family to prepare students spiritually and academically, growing their Christian commitment of service to others.  

Veritas Christian Academy of Houston is committed to a  curriculum of classical pedagogy and principles of classical thought. The school believes that students’ hearts and minds are informed and shaped through biblical content,  and a deeper awareness of its meaning and ethical application. Veritas is a robust laboratory of learning for students in classrooms, on the playing field, and during school travel, with extensive fine arts integration and community service opportunities. Guided by academic excellence, character formation, biblical literacy, classical foundation, and intentional engagement, Veritas Academy is committed to preparing its students for lives of service and learning. 

CORE VALUES

In pursuit of its mission, the Veritas community is guided by five core values. The school’s values represent the philosophical commitments of the community; values are reflected in the school’s history and guide the commitment to the future. The core values of Veritas embody the promises made for students’ development.  

Academic Excellence. Veritas embraces a history of excellence in academic achievement.  The school is committed to challenging students to the highest potential in academics and stretching intellectual boundaries, seeking to model and impart the virtues of inquiry, preparation, and discipline in the pursuit of knowledge and understanding.  

Character Formation. Veritas educates holistically, both character and mind. Moral  formation and mature behavior are of equal value to the acquisition of knowledge. The school is committed to developing students’ hearts and minds, seeking to instill knowledge and Christian values in them.  

Biblical Literacy. Veritas seeks to shape students’  thinking through scripture both by understanding biblical content and through a deeper awareness of its meaning and ethical application.  The school believes that students’ minds are informed and fashioned through Christian studies and by mastering core competencies of the Bible.  

Classical Foundation. Veritas is committed to a classical pedagogy to develop students’ intellectual abilities and assist them in acquiring the skills for good scholarship. The principles of classical thought inform and guide the school in its curricular aims to prepare students for success beyond Veritas.  

Intentional Engagement. Veritas values providing various engagement opportunities, both curricular and co-curricular, for the development of each student. The classroom, the playing field, travel exposure, fine arts integration, and community service are all part of the laboratory of learning for Veritas students.
