Founded in 1978
Veritas Christian School has been providing a Christian alternative to the Lawrence educational community for over 30 years. At Veritas Christian School, our goal is to equip children to become successful, contributing members of society while at the same time to be shining beacons for God. Originally named Douglas County Christian School opening in 1978, the school grew and in 1998 the pursuit of academic excellence was enhanced by the implementation of a classical method of instruction.
High School added in 2004
With the start of the 2004-05 school year, Veritas added 10th through 12th grades and began offering education opportunities for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade, thereby offering a complete educational process for children. Students benefit from a highly trained and qualified staff and a wide range of course offerings. On-site library and computer lab facilities provide opportunities for educational support and practical application. Students also enjoy the playground and open areas for recess activities, the multi-purpose room for P.E. and school assemblies, and a hot lunch program.
New facility groundbreaking in 2019
Veritas hosted a 40th Anniversary Gala and Groundbreaking April 16, 2019 on property just south of Lawrence as a new school facility is planned and begun. Veritas Christian School has continued to grow and expand as more and more families seek to provide an education for their children that honors the wisdom of the ages coupled with a fully integrated Biblical worldview. We at Veritas view our role as one of partnership with the families as they endeavor to fulfill the task God has given them of educating their children in the knowledge of the Lord and nurturing their obedience to Him.
