If you are homeschooling your children or are considering doing so, Veritas Classical Schools is here to help. The goal of Veritas is to offer homeschooling families a unique complement to their home study programs with an emphasis on classical as well as traditional subjects taught from a distinctly Christian perspective. Veritas serves you by coming alongside in the role of tutor and providing quality instruction one day a week. We provide homeschool families with:
Integrated core curriculum in history, geography, literature, composition, grammar, critical thinking, and vocabulary/language with regular assignments to outline student's work at home
Weekly (one day a week) classroom instruction and peer interaction in an academic environment
Math, Science and Foreign Language courses to complement our Humanities program are offered on a second day
Biblical encouragement by knowledgeable, Christian instructors who help you guide your student in understanding that all truth is God's truth
Gentle accountability for completed assignments
Teaching of advanced subjects with enrichment activities not frequently included in homeschool studies
Evaluation of Student's progress by experienced educators
Veritas recognizes that parents are ultimately responsible before God for the education of their children. This education includes an upbringing that will teach them the basics of education and plant in them a thirst for knowledge and truth.

The Unexpected Connection Between Handwriting and Learning to Read

Handwriting can seem so mundane and is a real struggle for some of our youngest. This helps understand the purpose in all of this practice!

understood.org Why does handwriting matter for literacy and learning to read? Dr. Sheldon Horowitz explains the unexpected connection.

[08/27/19]   This is the first week of classes for Veritas Classical Schools, South Carolina. We are so excited to begin our 13th year in this great state and we await expectantly what the Lord has for us and for these dear children, kids and families! We pray that the Lord will raise up countless warriors for Christ who are armed with the Word of God, the love of Christ, and a lifetime of learning ahead.

What is this new tech-world doing to our brains?!

"[N]euroscience proves what each of these busy people have found: it actually takes less energy to focus intently than to zip from task to task. After an hour of contemplation, or deep reading, a person ends up less tired and less neurochemically depleted, thus more able to tackle mental challenges." A timely challenge from Philip Yancey.

Words of wisdom from out mentor, Susan Wise Bauer!

When we recommend memorization in THE WELL-TRAINED MIND, this is the kind of memorization we have in mind--not meaningless mnemonics and raw repetition, but the repetition of repeated use and the connection of facts together with a whole body of knowledge. Great piece on the difference for your weekend reading.
