The School

Established in 2002, Veritas Christian Academy is a PK though Grade 8 coed, independent Christian school located in Bellaire, Texas, on the southwest side of metropolitan Houston.

Veritas Christian Academy is committed to a curriculum of classical pedagogy and principles of classical thought. The school believes that students’ hearts and minds are informed and shaped through biblical content, and a deeper awareness of its meaning and ethical application. Veritas is a robust laboratory of learning for students in classrooms, on the playing field, and during school travel, with extensive fine arts integration and community service opportunities. Guided by their five core values of academic excellence, character formation, biblical literacy, classical foundation, and intentional engagement, Veritas Academy of Houston is committed to preparing its 206 students for lives of service and learning.

In 2016, Veritas purchased its current campus of four acres and over 40,000 square feet of instructional space. The school’s strategic plan, A Foundation for Life, was established in 2018, and includes a commitment to enhance programs and curriculum, transform campus and facilities, and develop the faculty, while maintaining financial sustainability. Veritas is dually accredited through Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, SACS, Association of Christian Schools International, ACSI, and the Southern Association of Independent Schools, SAIS.
