DOWNLOAD THE VCA PHONE APP
Dear Veritas Community,

We encourage you to download the Veritas Christian Academy Phone App on your Apple and Android Devices!

We are excited to relaunch this wonderful tool. The VCA App was a new method of communication for us last year and has now been reconfigured with our new website links.
*If you downloaded it last year, please delete and redownload!*

You will especially appreciate:
  • An easy to use Google Calendar (you can set reminders in your phone!)
  • The streamlined push notification feature, which allows us to send reminders and urgent updates.
  • The quicklinks in the Resources tab which helps you to navigate the website more easily when you're "on the fly."

Contact cpritz@veritasnc.org with any questions!
SALT AND LIGHT KICK-OFF IS THIS FRIDAY!

HOUSING REQUEST

Dear Veritas Families,

Some of you may know the Suarez-Robles family that attended Veritas for several years. During the summer, the family was obliged to relocate to Wilson, NC. As the school year has progressed, the family has expressed a desire to bring their children back to Veritas to finish their education here. Julian is a senior, and Juliette is a junior. However, given the price of housing in the area, they are asking if the children can stay with a Veritas family. Ideally, they would stay together, but they can stay apart. The Suarez-Robles family is willing to contribute to their living expenses.

I ask you to prayerfully consider their request, and please let their mother, Roxanne Santiago, know if you are interested. Her email address is santiagoroxannepr@gmail.com and her phone number is (828) 280-5655. Thank you for your time and your support.

Most Sincerely, 
Nick Phillips 
Rhetoric School Principal 
WARRIOR NEWS

I hope everyone is getting excited about VCA Fall Athletics. We will be kicking off training for Men’s soccer, Women’s JV and Varsity volleyball, and Cross Country on October 19th.

Soccer will practice from 3:45 to 5:45 p.m. every day.
Volleyball (both JV and Varsity) will start at 5:30 until 6:45 p.m. Their times may change after the first day depending on amount of players.
Cross Country will meet right after school. 

Anyone who is planning on participating in Fall Athletics MUST have a completed Athletic Physical Form on file with us. You can pick a form from the office. A copy of the form can also be found on our website.

Please try and have this completed before training starts. We cannot allow your child to play without it. Also please turn in your athletic fee to the front office. 

Here is the coaching staff lined up for the fall:
Soccer – Michael Jennings
JV Volleyball – Jamie Douglass
Varsity Volleyball – Eddie Bingham
Cross Country – Adam Guice

Please contact me at mjennings@veritasnc.org with any questions.
Looking forward to playing again!

Thanks,
Michael Jennings
