“In both course offerings and social development, Veritas offers choices and opportunities that are of great benefit in preparing our daughter to pursue her goals in the medical field. The school’s counselor has been exceptional in assisting us with college preparation, keeping our daughter challenged in her course selections, and offering opportunities our family wasn’t even aware of. Veritas also makes community service an important part of their values-based environment and promotes service hours for all students.”
--Tammy Waltz—Veritas High School Parent
