“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
– Jeremiah 29:11

Welcome to Veritas’ Site for College Knowledge!
My name is Heidi Jones and I have been blessed to serve as College Advisor for Veritas since 2008! My two sons graduated from here in 2006 and 2008, so I have not only seen the amazing impact this incredible methodology and school have had on my own children, but have also walked alongside more than 100 other high schoolers as they’ve researched, visited, and applied to just as many, if not more, colleges and universities from around the country.
The most exciting aspect of this “ministry” for me is seeing how the Lord leads each student to just the right place where he or she needs to be that fall after graduating from Veritas! The college-application process is a huge step of faith, both for the student and the parents. I’ve had moms and dads call me in tears because one of their children has become absolutely smitten with a private college that they don’t think they can afford. Each time I remind them to pray and cling to the truth that God can get their child into any college He wants to, and if it’s not the one the highschooler loves, then that just means that’s not the best place for him or her. There is no greater joy in this job then to later receive a phone call from the same parents, screaming on the phone because their child had received a huge scholarship offer from the “I’m smitten!” college! I love that this sort of trust and patience sets an amazing foundation for prayer in that family – and any younger children can see that trusting in the Lord removed much of the typical stress associated with these major life decisions. And even if it didn’t work out financially for their child to attend the “smitten school,” the family’s response can be one not of anger, but of anticipation to see where the Lord was leading, instead.
I can honestly say that the college reps are pursuing our students. These admission personnel repeatedly tell me that they definitely see a confidence and competence – both socially and academically – that is not often seen in their applicants. Because of this noted difference, our seniors are also being blessed with substantial scholarship offers from a wide variety of colleges and universities.
My job is to help with all aspects of the college search and application process – starting with the ninth graders and finishing when I watch the seniors walk down the aisle at graduation each spring!
