1. Attend a School Information Meeting: Due to our unique school model, parents are required to attend an information meeting about Veritas Academy of Tucson prior to Admission. Both parents/guardians in a two-person household need to attend. These meetings are held at scheduled times on campus during the year. RSVP here.
2. Application: If, after reviewing the school material and praying about the decision, you are still interested in pursuing our school, then please complete the online application. There is a non-refundable $125 per student application fee required at time of submission.
- Wait Pool Information
If your child meets the admission requirements but no seat is available, we will offer to place your child in a Wait Pool. When/If a seat becomes available, the most qualified student will be offered admission. If you already have children enrolled in Veritas Academy, every attempt will be made to admit a new sibling.
3. Parent Interview: This step involves an interview between the parent/guardian(s) and a member of the Admin team and Board. The purpose of these meetings is to make certain that each family has had an individual opportunity to have their questions answered regarding our school, as well as to certify whether Veritas is the best fit for the family. A member of the Admissions team will contact you to arrange the interview.
4. Placement Testing and Evaluation: Academic courses offered require placement assessments for students. Once a satisfactory application has been received and the parent interview has taken place, placement testing will be scheduled.
5. Letter of Acceptance: The Admissions team will email each family indicating their decision. The family will formally accept an offer by completing the online enrollment packet and submitting all required documentation. In the unfortunate event that your plans change and you need to withdraw your child from Veritas, please see our withdrawal policy on the website under Admissions > Tuition and Fees.
Parent and Student Responsibilities
