Veritas Press – an overview
Whether you are designing a classical education for your family or are simply drawn to solid curriculum that uses great books, these resources are a wonderful option.
Veritas Press has been around since 1996. Their products are straightforward to use and are written from a biblical worldview using the time-tested phases of the trivium.
Great time and care has been taken to weave many of these courses together, giving students a very thorough education. However, many products stand beautifully on their own. All families should take a look at the Bible, history, and art cards and consider having them on hand. Each card has beautiful artwork, a summary of information, and a reading list on the Bible and history cards.

Bible and History
Grammar Stage Program (grade 2-6)
The Veritas Press bible and history curriculum can each be used independently of each other, but they were designed to be used together.
It’s important to teach the bible as history and we love how Veritas Press handles “bible stories”. As an example, instead of isolating the story of Joseph from history, Veritas Press shows students that Joseph lived just prior to the Hyksos’ invasion of Egypt.
The basic package includes a Teacher’s Manual, beautiful flashcards (these are really nothing like regular flashcards), a Song CD, and book package.
*The Enhanced CD is different from the Song CD. It contains the songs and teacher manual pages that can be printed off.
Old Testament & Ancient Egypt
New Testament, Greece, and Rome
Middle Ages, Renaissance & Reformation
Explorers to 1815
1815 to Present
Genesis through Joshua
Judges through Kings
Chronicles through Malachi
Acts through Revelation
History Survey and Transition Course (grades 6/7)
This is a 1-2 year course. Students use the Veritas Press History Cards alongside historical fiction novels to learn the basic timeline of history. This is designed as a transitional course for students to use between the grammar stage program and the more rigorous Omnibus program. It is also a great package for any student who would benefit from spending time studying history from a biblical worldview in chronological order.
Omnibus Program Grade 7-12
The Omnibus curriculum integrates history, theology, and literature. Omnibus Primary and Secondary are to be used simultaneously. The Primary course focuses on primary-sourced historical works and the Secondary course focuses on literature and theology. Each time period cycles through twice.
