Veritas Christian Academy in Wayland, Massachusetts, has a rich and inspiring history. Founded in 2010 after the closing of Westgate Christian Academy, the school was established by a group of dedicated parents and community members who recognized the great need for a Christ-centered education in MetroWest Boston. With no outside funding or church affiliation, Veritas began simply with $30,000 donated by the five founding families and opened as the first faith-based private school in Wayland’s 200-year history.


From the earliest years, Veritas has been distinct by design, blending a sincere commitment to developing intellectual curiosity while fostering wisdom and virtue. The school started with 44 students and 12 teachers, but it grew quickly as it gained a reputation for its high caliber curriculum, nurturing environment, and authentic community of faith.


As the years went by, Veritas continued to flourish, and each year produced at least a 10% increase in enrollment. To accommodate growing demand, the school expanded its footprint within Celebration International Church (CIC), opened a new preschool at a nearby location, and purchased a ten-acre property two miles from CIC with the vision of building a permanent campus, “Veritas Village.” 


Today, even as we’ve grown, our dedicated faculty and staff understand the importance of not only educating the minds of their students, but also cultivating their character, and most importantly, nurturing their eternal souls. The name Veritas reflects our commitment to introduce students to the beauty of God’s unchanging truth in an ever-changing world.
