Veritas Press is known for its curriculum that provides homeschoolers with a classical education from a Christian point of view. Did you know that Veritas Press also offers Live Online Classes and Clubs? The clubs (biology, chess, computer, Latin, math, photography, Spanish) are only open to currently enrolled students. Veritas Live Online Classes are taught by expert teachers in the Veritas Virtual Classroom. They are rather pricey at $499 for summer classes and $649 for regular Secondary School Courses (not including books or materials). Still, many parents think they’re worth it, to take some of the stress out of homeschooling. For example, they can help:
- Teach a subject you’re not comfortable with.
- Reduce the number of subjects for you teach.
- Allow you to not worry about grading papers or tests.
- Get your teen excited and motivated to learn.
A Live Online Course is one in which the students meet together online at a set time for real time instruction from their teacher. The Veritas Live Online Courses are taught using the Adobe Connect classroom platform which allows for an interactive learning environment. All of the course sessions are recorded and archived for the student to access at any time if they miss a class or want to go back and review the material.
Covering every subject Veritas offers, the Live Online classes include both core and elective courses. Some of them have minimum age requirements. With only 20 students permitted to be in each Live Online course, these classes fill up fast. Hurry and register now if you want to take a summer school class! As of June 4th, five classes still have seats available: Novels of Jane Austen, Film and Worldview, Latin, Logic, and Creative Writing. (I love the creative writing theme – “Come up with a novel response to the question, ‘What did you do over summer vacation?’”)
Here is a complete listing of all the course offerings for grades 7-12.
