Grandparents


Welcome, Grandparents!

Although we are unable to host Grandparents' Day on campus this year, we are so glad that you can join us for our virtual celebration. We hope that you enjoy the stories and images on this page, and we eagerly anticipate the day when we can gather together in person again.

We miss you!

How Can You Get Involved?

Veritas welcomes and encourages grandparent involvement!  We believe that grandparents can have a direct impact on their grandchildren's education by praying faithfully and by being active members of the Veritas community. We have listed some of the ways that you can be involved below, and we will update this list as more opportunities become available. 

Should you have any questions, please reach out to Director of Development Barbara Hickerson at bhickerson@veritasschool.com.
