Core Values

Veritas means truth, and in today's world, it is more important than ever to distinguish between knowledge and truth. Every day, we seek to teach our students that knowledge alone is not enough. Knowledge and truth must go hand-in-hand, and the truth of God’s grace, authority, and character is at the center of our core values. 

Together we are...

Truth Seekers

seeking discernment and wisdom in biblical and academic truth

Resilient Souls

persevering through difficult trials with the steadfast knowledge that God is sovereign

Unconditional Love

recognizing every person as an image bearer of Christ, deserving our respect and love

Teachable Hearts

seeking to improve through accountability and grace in a way that reflects Christlike humility

High Expectations

pursuing excellence, knowing that we are each uniquely created for an eternally significant purpose


On September 8, 2010, Veritas Christian Academy opened its doors to 44 excited students and 12 staff members. Formed following the closure of Westgate Christian Academy, our vision was simple---to provide a thriving, Christ-centered community that offered excellent academics at an affordable tuition rate, while simultaneously developing authentic and lasting faith in our young students. 


All of the research, wisdom and advice we sought confirmed that we were trying to accomplish the impossible. But our God is a God of miracles. What was required was sincere prayer and bold faith, which we had in abundance. With only five families each contributing $6,000, Veritas had a financial foundation of $30,000. Several critical things happened in quick succession to allow us to open our doors. Each one of them a reminder that God was preparing the path ahead. Celebration International Church opened its door to welcome our new school and a thriving partnership began. Six weeks after our initial consideration of opening a school, we presented our proposal to the town, where they unanimously approved Veritas as the first private school in Wayland’s 200-year history. 


From the earliest days, Veritas Christian Academy has been a distinct community that is equally passionate about cultivating inquiring minds, authentic faith and compassionate hearts. Over the last 13 years, Veritas has grown from 44 students to 198 students reaching across two campuses, with our main K-8 campus in Wayland, MA and a preschool in Wellesley, MA. We have launched 101 graduates and walked alongside close to 500 students during this journey. As we look forward to the next chapter of Veritas, we remain passionately committed to educating students who know who they are and what they believe.
