A Permanent Home to Call Our Own
In order to be able to expand our programs in the future, Veritas needs to have a permanent campus of its own. Toward this end, Phase I of a school capital campaign was launched in 2005 and over $1 million has been raised since then! With that money, God has graciously provided us with five acres of land for our new school in the foothills of Newberg’s Chehalem Mountain, as well as the use of 11 adjoining acres for athletic fields. He has also blessed us with complete architectural plans and extensive site preparation. All we’re missing is the funding necessary to actually move onto the property.
After much prayer, and with guidance from the team at Mission Advancement Professionals (MAP), the Veritas Board has recently completed a strategic planning process that helped them identify the best way to relocate Veritas to this new property on the corner of Bell Rd. and Hwy. 219. A capital campaign has been launched that will, Lord willing, raise the remaining money need to provide facilities for the student body we now have, and leave exciting options for phased-in growth and expansion that future generations ca choose to complete.
The Master Site Plan for the campus was developed in 2005 by Dan Cook and Assoc, an internationally recognized architectural firm specializing in school design.
Designed to be built in phases as the school grows, the goal for the campus is to provide facilities that support Veritas School’s mission, distinctive curriculum and delivery of enriched programs.
When complete, the plan includes academic buildings for Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric, a gymnasium, a music and fine arts building, an administration building, play grounds, athletic fields, and courtyards.
The Master Site Plan reflects the school’s educational philosophy in an environment that honors God in its good stewardship and which incorporates the elements of discovery, joy of learning, nature study, and integration of building with nature.
