The essential priorities of Veritas' educational model cost more per-student than what we receive from the state. Therefore, we ask our families to contribute to the annual Community Investment campaign and help make up that difference.
What does it support?
Family support through the Community Investment campaign allows the leadership of Veritas to run the school day-to-day, and to hold fast to our mission as we plan and grow. It ensures that:
Our class sizes stay small at an average of 23 students
We maintain an on-campus student-teacher ratio of 14:1
Our teachers teach, on average, only four and a half hours per day, as compared to district averages of five or six hours
The result is that our teachers instruct far fewer students than the district average, are better able to prepare for their lessons, and have more time for communication with students and parents. Our students receive more meaningful assignments, daily feedback, and the opportunity for one-on-one tutoring. These are essentials you will not find at a district school. These are the essentials that set Veritas apart.
How do families participate?
We ask each family to contribute $1.500 during the 2013-14 school year and $1,200 during the 2012-13 school year to help cover the per-student gap between what we need for our academic model and what we receive from the state. Knowing that every family's financial situation is different, we encourage families to give as they are able. Many families choose to spread out their contribution by making monthly gifts over the course of the school year. Other families make a one-time gift to the Community Investment campaign. Every family's participation, at whatever level, is vital to supporting the priorities of Veritas.
