Why Choose Veritas Academy
Veritas Academy aims to help parents raise up life-long learners in the training and admonition of the Lord.
Rather than promoting a set body of facts to be mastered, the classical approach teaches children to think critically and creatively by cultivating a mindset which is firmly rooted in the traditions of Western culture and the wisdom of a time when Christ and Christianity were the center and foundation of all learning.
University Model Schools provide a unique form of education. Veritas is a full-time, five-day per week school with students spending two days each week in the classroom and three days studying in their satellite classroom under the supervision of a parent. As students mature, they become increasingly independent so that by the time they reach the 12th grade they work and study as independent learners, ready for college. The Satellite Teachers work under the guidance and supervision of Veritas and its campus teachers using Veritas curriculum and lesson plans.
News & Announcements
Introducing Mrs. Michelle Wohlford, our new Head of School!
Michelle Wohlford settled in Tucson in 2010 after moving around the country her entire life as a military daughter and wife. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Angelo State University and her Master’s degree in Education from the University of Phoenix. She’s been married to Jeff since 1993, who she met while serving in the Air Force for four years. She was blessed to stay home with their three sons for about ten years, and she was also able to teach Sunday School, tutor, and lead Women’s Bible studies. She felt a strong calling to teach children, so she began her formal career as a middle and high school math teacher. She served as an administrator for nine years in local charter schools and has classical education experience. She is grateful to God for leading her to Veritas Academy of Tucson, and her life verses are Proverbs 3:5-6.

What is the CLT?
The Classical Learning Test is a college entrance exam developed by Classic Learning Initiatives. T test consists of 40 questions that cover reading comprehension, grammar, and mathematical and logical reasoning.
The CLT was originally developed to address some of the controversies that have dogged the ACT and the SAT for decades, including accusations of bias and unreliable metrics. One of the standout differences of the new standardized test is that it targets a classical education, a type of education that is commonly taught at liberal arts colleges in the United States.
Our next Information Meeting is on October 19th at 6:30 PM. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We look forward to connecting with you!
Words of encouragement from our Head of School and Family Ministries Director on living life well as believers, principles of parenting and discipling one’s child, and practical ways to make the Veritas home teaching experience better.
