Veritas Christian Academy Ratings & Reviews
When the BIBLE teacher is himself prejudiced against women excelling, how is he expected to teach those in his tutelage how to become proper Christians. When people write papers about being a woman that aspires to becoming a doctor, and then is belittled in front of her classmates by the BIBLE TEACHER, of all people, because she shouldn't be planning for a career in anything but barefootedness and pregnancy, that's just wrong, and your kids deserve better. I agree with other reviewers who said homeschooling would be a better option.
No class selection, all freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors are assigned to the same classes every year. lack of organization in the classroom and virtually no extra-curricular activities. Veritas isn't really a school, its more like a homeschool group that meets in a church. In my opinion, it would be very hard for a child to succeed in the real would when in this tiny, sheltered environment. Unless you are an extremely conservative christian and don't care about having any class or extra curricular options, id check out another school.
Veritas Christian Academy has proved its worth among private schools in Northern New Jersey. It has provided a great education to its students and continues to have a bright future. Veritas Christian Academy is committed to strong and prescriptive worldviews that fit within conservative evangelical protestants. It is difficult for students to formulate their own worldview because they feel the peer and teacher pressure to conform to views that are taught instead of being encouraged to formulate a worldview for themselves based off of Scripture. Veritas Christian Academy offers an alternative to public education and travel to other Christian schools. However, parents and students must way academic achievement with the value of their own personal and religious convictions. Those who don't define themselves as conservative evangelicals (I am not one) beware.
This is a wonderful school that teaches the Christian worldview in all its courses of study. We have two graduates in our family and they are moving on successfully to college. A great place to send your child. All teachers and staff are excellent, loving and supportive. A blessing to have this school in our community
I am the parent of a former student, a current student, and a future student, as well as the parent of an older child that attended a public HS. There is no comparison between the behavior & attitude of the students at Veritas, and my older daughters former classmates. MOST of the students at Veritas are great kids who truly desire to do what is right in their lives. There is not a lot of peer pressure to do bad things, in fact, most of the students want nothing to do with "bad things" and steer clear of those who do. The staff has been awesome and there for my son for the past 4 years. They have lovingly encouraged him to join sports when they knew he had ability, and he ended up playing 2 years of soccer and loving it. He also joined the band (after never being in any type of band program) and loved that and being in the school play as well. More kids do more things here - kids are not put into a stereotypical group for one of their abilities. My daughter has loved having an older female student mentor her. I am a very active parent and around these kids all the time. They are the real deal.
