Program Details

The Fellows Program at Veritas School is designed to set new teachers on a firm path toward a career in classical Christian education. By providing a soft entry into the classroom and amenities such as on-campus housing, the program gives new educators the opportunity to learn the ropes in an environment that is designed to keep them afloat. 

Fellows may ask to be placed in either the Lower School (JK – 6) or Upper School (7 – 12). Each fellow will be paired with a primary mentor who provides guidance, constructive feedback, and encouragement for the duration of the academic year. The fellow will primarily work within the classroom of his/her mentor but will have opportunities to observe other teachers as well. 

Fellows will begin the academic year with orientation, training, and observation of their mentor teacher. As the year progresses, they will be given opportunities to independently plan units and deliver instruction, with growing responsibilities over the course of the year. 

In addition to daily classroom experience, fellows will also meet regularly with the Fellows Training Program Coordinator and attend seminars on classical education and pedagogy. Fellows will actively participate in faculty meetings and on-campus professional development opportunities, and they are encouraged to participate in the social opportunities that make up the life of the school.


The Veritas Fellows program runs from August 10 – June 10, with the opportunity to move into campus housing as soon as August 1.


Fellows are provided with housing in Kraemer Hall, a residential hall located on the Veritas School campus in the historic northside of Richmond, Virginia.


A stipend will be provided for the duration of the 10-month program.

Strings & Choral Fellowships

Do you have a passion for helping students develop a deep and abiding love of music? For the 2024-25 academic year, a limited number of fellowships are dedicated to training educators in Strings and Choral Instruction. This is a unique opportunity to "apprentice" in the art of teaching and to transition from student to teacher under the guidance of a seasoned music instructor. Recent graduates with a degree in Music or Music Education (preferably with a concentration in Orchestral Strings or Choral Singing) are highly encouraged to apply. 

The Strings and Choral Fellows will receive all of the benefits of the fellowship program with the following additions:

  • Strings and Choral Fellows will assist the Veritas music faculty in classroom instruction and conducting, leading sectionals, and preparing for concerts.
  • Strings and Choral Fellows will have opportunities to teach private lessons and participate in the High School Orchestra or Concert Choir.

When applying, please note your request for a Strings or Choral Fellowship in your cover letter. 

Who Should Apply?

Ideal candidates should:

  • Be a recent college graduate with a desire to enter the field of education (a degree in education is not necessary). 
  • Demonstrate an interest in the classical Christian tradition, including a willingness to pursue great literature, music, and art in their own time. 
  • Express interest in honing the craft of classroom teaching.
