Tuition Assistance

From its inception in 2000, Veritas has been committed to providing a school of high spiritual and academic standards.  We understand that paying tuition for a classical, Christian education can be financially inaccessible to some families.   Our philosophy of cost-based tuition and need-based tuition assistance seeks to balance sound stewardship with compassionate support to families that need assistance to attend Veritas.

All resources provided to families are based solely on proven financial need as evaluated by Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST).  FAST provides third-party, objective and completely confidential financial need assessments for families who apply for tuition assistance.  After reviewing your financial information, FAST makes a recommendation on total tuition assistance for your family (using a standard method of computation based on the tuition structure of Veritas.)  Veritas receives a report from FAST for each family that applies for assistance.  The school’s Tuition Assistance Committee then awards assistance based on the FAST report. The total tuition is then reduced by the amount awarded.  Returning families are given priority in the awarding of tuition assistance. Remaining funds are used to assist new families.

The FAST website can be accessed through the Veritas School website at www.veritasschool.com.  The FAST link is located at the lower section of the Veritas School home page.  FAST accepts credit or debit card payments only.  If you are not able to pay using one of these methods, please contact the Veritas Business Office at 804.272.9517.

 

Tuition Assistance Application Process

1. Tuition assistance applications are to be completed on-line through FAST after enrollment application and fee are submitted to Veritas School Office of Admissions.
2. Once the applications have been completed online and copies of taxes are mailed, FAST will provide Veritas with a report detailing award amount recommendations.
3. The Tuition Assistance Committee will review the recommendations and make final award decisions.
4. Award amounts are then reported to families confidentially.
5. Families then have until the designated enrollment deadline to decide whether or not to accept the award and enroll for the following school year.
