Tuition for Grades Pre-K through 11th
For the 2018-19 school year, tuition is $1777 per semester. Tuition and fee discounts of 25% are available under a generous formula that ensures many middle class families will qualify. Payment options include monthly, semester and pay-at-once.
Tuition is due June 1 for year-at-once, June 1 and December 1 for semester payments, and monthly on the 1st for monthly plans.
Monthly payments must begin by June 1, or the 1st of the month following admission, whichever is later. Payments beginning after June 1 will have a down payment equal to the missed payments so all tuition payments for the year are completed by May 1 of the academic year. Veritas partners with FACTS to make payments quick, easy and convenient for families; payment options include direct bank ACH or credit card (convenience fee applies).

Books & Uniforms
Families purchase their own books, uniforms, and at-home school supplies. The cost of books ranges from $150 to $900 per student per year, depending on grade and whether the books are purchased new or used, and whether books can be reused from siblings. Some books and resources may be shared by multiple children in the same family. Uniforms are purchased at Lands End. We encourage families to budget $1000 per year per student, as an average, for books and uniforms, though cost-conscious families are often able to vastly reduce this expense through trade, sale or borrowing among the Veritas community.
On-Campus School Supplies
On-Campus School Supplies Surcharge - $75 per student, posted to FACTS in September or first payment, whichever is later. This covers teacher supplies, teacher curriculum, printers, printer paper, toner and other on-campus expenses.
Veritas, like other schools, contracts for its facilities, faculty, and staff on an annualized basis. Tuition is collected and tuition payments begin before the semester begins so we can be good stewards and plan accordingly. As such, we cannot simply refund tuition proportionate to student attendance, since we have made commitments to faculty members and other stakeholders based on a given level of enrollment.
If a family decides to leave Veritas Classical Academy for any reason during the school year, the following policies apply:
We require a one month written notice in order to process a family’s withdrawal.
If paying monthly: Failure to notify the school of such a change will result in the school charging an additional month's tuition to the family.
If paying by semester or year-in-full: Tuition that was pre-paid will be refunded in the same amount as if the family was paying monthly. For example, a family gives adequate notice in November of a December withdrawal. In such a case, the chargeable months of tuition would be June through December, or 7 months. The family would be refunded 5 months of tuition, for the 5 remaining months of payments under a monthly plan.
For the 2019-20 school year monthly tuition payments will be reduced from a 12 month payment cycle (June through May) to a 10 month payment cycle (June through March). Veritas will also align its refund policy with other private schools, expecting that families commit for one year to all payments, regardless of attendance. This will allow us to more confidently plan and invest tuition into better experiences for students.
