The vision of establishing a classical Christian school in Richmond began in 1998 with several parents committed to providing a Christ-centered education with strong academics for their children.
A board of directors was established in 1999 and in the fall of 2000 Veritas Classical Christian School opened its doors to 25 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade at Crestwood Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia. Stony Point Presbyterian Church was added as an Upper School campus in 2003 to accommodate growth in enrollment.
The property adjacent to Crestwood Presbyterian Church on Jahnke Road was purchased in 2009 to accommodate our growing student body and to bring all students together on one campus.
Exhausting all available space at Crestwood Presbyterian Church by the summer of 2013, Veritas School conducted an extensive search of appropriate campus locations. In God’s providence, a permanent campus home became available and the school moved to the former campus of the Baptist Theological Seminary of Richmond. Within two stately and historic buildings are classrooms and common spaces dedicated to serving the academic and artistic development of each of our students. With the addition of several adjacent buildings bordering a traditional grass quad, this property will serve as the long-term home of Veritas School.
Veritas currently serves over 330 students in Grades K4-12. These students represent over 50 churches and come from as far as Montpelier, Hopewell, Glen Allen, Manakin-Sabot and Chester.
