Our 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, which places your child in the wait pool for future school years.

To begin the process, please submit the following application and fee. After the application is processed, you will receive a letter of confirmation and a phone call to schedule a student assessment. Each applicant is assessed by a teacher, looking specifically at math, reading, writing, and grammar at the appropriate grade level. 

After applying, parents are also asked to request student recommendations (sent directly to the school by the recommender), which give us a more complete picture of each prospective student and how he or she interacts with peers in a classroom environment. The recommendations must be received before the family interview, which is the final step in the application process. This interview is an opportunity for parents to meet with a school administrator and learn more about Veritas School, and for us to learn more about your family. 

Please note that, for their starting year, rising Junior Kindergarten students must turn four by September 1 and rising Kindergarten students must turn five by September 1.
