If you are applying for financial assistance you must complete a FACTS application online (a third party agency that sets up payment plans for families). We strongly recommend that you apply for financial assistance at the same time you apply for admission. For more information on financial assistance at Veritas, please visit our financial aid page.
STEP 3: INTERVIEW AS A FAMILY
Each parent and student will participate in an interview with the Headmaster once all admission documents have been received. Admissions testing for PreK and Kindergarten will take place concurrent with the family interview. Admissions testing for students 1st grade and above will be scheduled after the family interview has taken place.
STEP 4: ADMISSIONS TESTING
Veritas admissions tests are comprised of basic reading and math skills as well as other subject areas pertinent to a child’s grade level. The tests help teachers determine the best placement for a student.
Once the family interview and admissions testing are complete, Veritas will contact parents with the decision regarding acceptance. If accepted, welcome! Your family will receive a letter of acceptance and an enrollment contract. The school will also notify parents with respect to decisions regarding any requests for financial assistance.
