In 2016, we had the quintessential “good problem” to solve: a growing student body in need of more classroom space, a growing athletic program in need of fields, and remarkable century-old buildings in need of specialized maintenance. Thankfully, our good problem had a great solution. Together, we met those challenges.
The Flourishing Campaign launched in August of 2016 with a goal of raising four million dollars. With the Lord’s provision, and through the generosity of His people, the goal was not only met, but exceeded. We are humbled and pleased to announce that 5.2 million dollars were pledged to the Capital Campaign and an additional 1 million dollars in estate gifts.
In the fall of 2018, the completed renovation of North Hall added eleven large classrooms to our Upper School. One week after we received the Certificate of Occupancy, ten of the eleven classrooms were in full use; the distinct sounds of classical Christian education could be heard throughout the crisp, bright hallways and purposefully-built learning spaces.
While the transformative renovation of North Hall garnered the most attention, the Flourishing Campaign also secured our campus footprint. In a high-demand Northside real estate market, Veritas’ footprint is now secure. Our historic campus accommodates more students and more academic and co-curricular programs than we could have imagined just a few years ago. We are so grateful for the many parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends who invested in this campaign.
In the midst of a rapidly changing society, Veritas remains committed to the proven combination of classical scholarship and Christ-centered discipleship. Generous gifts to the Flourishing Campaign secured the campus that makes it possible to offer this beautiful education. Thank you.
To God be the Glory!

- “When we enrolled our children at Veritas, we desired several things: that they would be in a place where they felt known and loved, that they would receive an academically rigorous education, and that they would learn in an environment where a Christian worldview and values are truly woven throughout everything they do. Those expectations have been exceeded in so many ways. We consider our giving to be an investment in something that will make a difference in our family, our city, and even the world.”Jess and Steve Godfrey
