Education, in many schools, has been reduced to a transactional relationship between teachers and students regarding tests and grades. At the center of this type of education is information that is “covered.” This is such a common practice in schools that we are prone to believing that education itself is nothing other than the transfer of information.
At Veritas, we know this is not the case. The purpose of education is formation. It is about training students to become something, namely, lovers of God who are awakened and attuned to His beauty, goodness, and truth. A school that does not purposefully seek to form its students in this way will, intentionally or unintentionally, form them to become shallow intellectually and relativistic morally. Formation for a school is not optional.
