Our Story

Our Story

The seeds to plant a classical Christian school in Richmond were first sown in 1998 by 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. In 2009, the school purchased the property adjacent to Crestwood Presbyterian Church on Jahnke Road to accommodate our growing student body and to bring all students together on one campus. By the summer of 2013, Veritas School had exhausted all available space at Crestwood Presbyterian Church and 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. Over the years, the school has purchased adjacent seminary buildings to fill out our nineteen-acre campus in Richmond's historic Northside.

Today, our stately and historic buildings surround a traditional grass quad and house classrooms and common spaces dedicated to serving the discipleship and scholarship of over 600 students.

Great is Thy Faithfulness
