Tuition for Grades Pre-K through 12th
Veritas Classical Academy is committed to making Christian education as affordable as possible for families in the Beaumont, Texas area, and we are the area’s highest private school value. Find out more about how to apply here.
For the 2019-20 school year, tuition is $1874 per semester. Tuition and fee discounts of 25% are available under a generous formula that ensures many middle income families will qualify. Payment options include monthly (10 month), semester and pay-at-once.
Tuition is due June 1 for year-at-once, June 1 and November 1 for semester payments, and monthly on the 1st from June to March 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 March 1st 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.
Veritas, like other schools, contracts for its facilities, faculty, and staff on an annualized basis. Since many of our expenses are front-loaded at the beginning of the school year, tuition is collected and tuition payments begin before the year begins so we can be good stewards and plan with confidence. As such, we cannot refund tuition in the event of a withdrawal, since we have made commitments to faculty members and other stakeholders based on a given level of enrollment. Enrollment at Veritas entails tuition payments for the entire year, except for extraordinary circumstances such as a move, unemployment, or severe sickness. All extraordinary circumstances will be reviewed and approved by the Head of School on a case-by-case basis.
If a family decides to leave Veritas Classical Academy during the school year for an extraordinary circumstance (severe sickness, move, unemployment, etc), as solely determined by the Head of School, the following refund 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 paying in full 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 3 months, or 30%, of total tuition, for the 3 remaining months of payments under a monthly plan.
Registration, Supplies Fees, Extracurricular/Athletic Fees, Optional Third Day Fees, Advising Fees, and FACTS fees are always non-refundable.
Application Fees are refundable if a family does not receive an offer of admission.
