Veritas Academy’s financial aid program is need-based. If a family desires a classical and Christian education for their child(ren), we want to make it possible. We use an independent agency called Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to assess families’ financial needs. FAST will make a recommendation to the school regarding scholarships. Veritas Academy reviews their recommendations and grants funds accordingly. Our financial aid is awarded based primarily on the income earned by the applicant. The admissions process must be completed before financial assistance is awarded. If a family is unable to secure financial aid, and therefore is unable to attend Veritas, the registration fee will be refunded. Financial aid is available for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. A new application with financial data is required for each school year.
