About Us

Veritas Preparatory Charter School is founded on the belief that all students — regardless of race, class, or socioeconomic circumstance — are entitled to a high-quality education defined by high expectations. Veritas Prep is designed with a “no excuses” approach based on an intensive study of the highest performing urban schools. Veritas Prep provides a rigorous college preparatory curriculum and character education within a structured learning environment. We utilize an extended school day and year and data-driven instruction to drive dramatic gains in student achievement. The school opened in August 2012 with Grade 5 and will grow one grade per year to eventually serve students in Grades 5-8. Many of our scholars live in neighborhoods where educational opportunities are limited and expectations for academic achievement are low. Less than 32% of Springfield residents have graduated with a four-year college degree. Almost half of the students who start as kindergartners in Springfield city schools do not graduate from high school. Learn more about our mission and educational philosophy.
