Christian Worldview

The school is Christ-centered.  We aim to partner with parents to instill excellence of character and fill our children with Godly wisdom. We seek to provide an environment where children can celebrate the commonalities of the Christian faith.  All of Veritas' board members, administrative staff and faculty ascribe to our Statement of Faith. We acknowledge Christ as both Source and Goal of all creation and history, and the Center of any discussion of truth, beauty, and goodness.

A worldview is the perspective from which one views reality and interprets the world. Every person has a worldview, whether consciously or subconsciously. It is formed over time and is the culmination of everything one believes to be true. Chuck Colson and Nancy Pearcy said “A worldview is the sum total of our beliefs about the world, the picture that directs our daily decisions and actions.” For example, a toddler’s worldview is self-centered and tends to begin and end with himself. An agnostic understands man as a product of biological chance and can explain everything on the basis of natural laws.

A Christian views reality from the premise that a wise and holy Creator has revealed Himself distinctly through His Word and His creation. We believe in a rational, comprehensible universe as created by God. While the Bible, properly interpreted, is the ultimate arbiter of truth for the believer, at Veritas we believe fully that “all truth is God’s truth,” which gives impetus for vigorous achievement in all of our academic disciplines. This worldview then becomes the leading force behind every decision, emotion, and action, and therefore permeates every area of life.

It is important to realize that education is never neutral. It is more than the mere transmission of facts; it involves the communication of life principles and values and, therefore, requires a spiritual context. The truth of God and His word is fundamental to Christian education and permeates every aspect of our goals and objectives, our teaching materials, and our curriculum. God is acknowledged in each classroom as the source of all that is true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous, and praiseworthy.

At Veritas Classical Academy, parents are acknowledged as the primary educators and the school instructs those students under the parents’ delegated authority. Parents have the responsibility and privilege to evangelize and disciple their children, as God has uniquely designed families to this end. Veritas seeks to support families as they fulfill this Biblical commandment, rather than outsourcing their responsibility to another institution.

Deuteronomy 6:6-9

6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
