The mission of Veritas Christian Academy is to train the minds, develop the Christian character, and enrich the spiritual lives of its students through quality academic programs and extracurricular activities. “Our purpose is to glorify God by teaching a Biblical worldview of life in a Christ-centered environment. That mission is accomplished for the 2021 graduating class.”

The Class of 2021 marks the 13th graduating class in the school’s history. The return to a standard graduation affair was a welcomed change from the unusual events of 2020 as Veritas commenced its school year by honoring one of the largest classes in recent history.

Fifteen of the nineteen seniors have plans in place to attend college in the fall while others are still considering options or looking to immediately enter the workforce. Below is a roster of the 2021 graduating class of Veritas Christian Academy along with their college destination and scholarships awarded. Nineteen students will graduate with over 170 college credits earned during their tenure at Veritas.

While scholarly knowledge is the intent of every school, it’s the instilling of the knowledge of God that Veritas has as the focus of its curriculum. 1 Corinthians 10:5 (NIV) says, “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” The hope of Veritas Christian Academy “is that these seniors walk away from their high school years with a greater portion of the knowledge of God as they set out to be leaders in this world.”

Veritas congratulate the graduating class of 2021 and pray that they continue on the path the Lord has set for them:
