Veritas Prep is successful both because of how deeply we care about each other and also how much we expect from one another. Our team is dedicated to getting it right for our scholars. Not only do our scholars achieve at high levels, but in their four years with us, they grow into incredible young men and women who will make great contributions to our world. We’ve learned as much from them over the years as they have from us. Together, our story is one of students, teachers, leaders, families, and community members supporting each other to raise the bar for ourselves, our scholars and the world around us.

Our scholars in Springfield had another stellar year of learning and achievement, and Veritas Prep expanded our impact to Holyoke. In partnership with the Holyoke Public Schools we launched a new middle school this fall that will serve students in grades 5-8. We will use the successful practices of Veritas Prep Charter School to provide children in Holyoke with a world class education. The opportunity to serve more students in our region is the result of years of hard work by our tenacious Springfield team who has proven that even in our most struggling communities, students can and will achieve at high levels. We remain driven to put every scholar we serve on a path to college and future success. We will keep pushing ourselves to defy the odds and prove what is possible for our scholars in Springfield, and now, in Holyoke.

We couldn’t do this work without your support! With this report, we invite you to take a closer look into some of our stories and accomplishments from 2018.
