Admissions Process

Veritas School accepts applications throughout the year. Official enrollment season for the upcoming school year begins October 1.  You may enter the application process earlier by completing the Early Reservation Form.  This places your child in the wait pool for future school years.

To enter the process, simply submit a completed application with fee.  You will receive a letter of confirmation and a phone call to schedule a student assessment.  Each applicant is assessed by a teacher for the appropriate grade level looking specifically at math, reading, writing, and grammar.  Rising kindergarten students must turn 5 by September 1 of their starting year of kindergarten.

Student recommendation forms must be submitted before the family interview.  These recommendation letters give Veritas a more complete picture of each prospective student and how they interact with their peers and in a classroom environment.  The family interview is the final step in the application process.  This is an opportunity for parents to meet with a school administrator to learn more about Veritas School and allow us to learn more about your family.

The checklist below lists the specific steps from application to enrollment.
