About Veritas Prep Holyoke
Veritas Prep Holyoke is a college prep middle school, where our close-knit community sets high expectations for each student and supports them with daily tutoring and customized supports.
Veritas Prep Holyoke opened in the Fall of 2018 with 130-150 students in grade 5. Veritas will grow by one grade per year to serve 515-600 students in grades 5-8 when operating at full capacity. The desire to open a new middle school option is aligned with our vision of a pathway for every student and our desire to create more options for students and families. It also fits in with our longer-term planning of having 2-3 middle schools for students in Holyoke in the next few years.
