Head of School Search

After 13 years of faithful leadership, Veritas co-founders Lisa Gerdes and Cindy Wellman informed the Board of their desire to step down from their respective roles as Principal and Executive Director at the conclusion of the 2023-2024 academic year.

“Veritas Christian Academy would not exist without the visionary leadership and commitment to excellence of co-founders Cindy Wellman and Lisa Gerdes. Over the past 13 years, they have made a positive and lasting impact on the minds and eternal souls of more than 300 children. As we look ahead to the next chapter in Veritas’ history, we are committed to finding a Head of School that will carry forth the clear mission and rich traditions for which Veritas is known and loved.”


- Joseph Medendorp, Chairman, Board of Directors
