    Christian, Collaborative Education, A Model That Endures to the Next Generation

    For many CDA Dallas parents, classical, Christian, collaborative education is entirely new. My first real exposure to a University-Model® education was through my husband, Jared. For Jared, and two other CDA Dallas parents, Andrew and Ana Bobo, the University-Model® was not a new concept. It was a concept that profoundly impacted their education and spiritual formation. These three parents graduated in 2008 from the first University-Model® school in the country, Grace Preparatory Academy.

  • Collin County Holds First 5th Grade Science Fair

    On Thursday, April 18th the 5th grade held science fair at our gym.  During the year, the students studied the lives and great discoveries of over 25 scientists of the Industrial Age. For the fair, they each chose a scientist to focus on.  The students then created an experiment or a project to demonstrate their scientist's discovery.  Students performed experiments, such as elephant toothpaste to demonstrate the use of a catalyst, filling balloons with various gasses to demonstrate Avogadro's Law, mixing light colors like Maxwell, and using a small Tesla coil with various objects.  They demonstrated fermentation by making pickles, sourdough bread, ketchup and root beer.  They made maglev train models, faraday cages, motors, circuits, and more.  The students presented their projects to other students, parents, and teachers.  We hope they carry a love for God's creation and a wonder at the complexities of our world throughout their years at CDA and beyond.

  • "It's All Greek To Me!" - 2nd Grade Greek History Festival

    Last week, our Collin County second grade classes participated in the annual Grammar School History Festival.
    Those second graders presented all about the Greek culture, art, sports, and philosophers. 
    The second graders work diligently all year to be ablet to make it to these fests that are put on as a showcase for parents and friends. They start by reciting a song they've been learning in class, but all of them have memorized the Nicene Creed by memory. This impressive feat for second graders accumulates the standard that CDA holds, as we also live by this Nicene Creed in and out of the classroom. 
    Next, these students recite their also memorized Greek alphabet! From A-Z or Alpha to Omega, these smart students showcased their studies in strides. 
    Each student also had a personal presentation on one of the forementioned categories, explaining the history, people, and giving examples behind all of them. For example, some female students did a presentation over Greek makeup and jewelry, describing where the Greek women would find and how they would make the ingredients for the makeup. 
    For some male students, they would give cunning and descriptive notes of the Olympic games or accounting the Greek Gods.
    To hear these very intuitive second graders stand up on their own and speak clearly, owning their education that is presented, it is a privilege to see just where the University Model of CDA can take them! 
    Our teachers, parents and families have been well-involved in their process the whole year, and we want to thank all of them for their hard work also.

    CC Students Become Eagle Scouts

    CC Students, Brayden Axford, Luke & Patrick Teson, and Evan Meyer, have all recently become Eagle Scouts. 
    This is a major accomplishment, as they have a huge impact on the community by being good and productive members of society. This helps train the mental muscle of perseverance and working hard to achieve whatever they put their minds to. For these students, the journey to become an Eagle Scout can take anywhere from 2 to 6/7 years, which means a fortitude and dedication by all.
    For these students who not only have a rigorous school schedule and, for some, athletics included, the time and attention put into reaching their goal of becoming Eagle Scouts truly shows their desire to make CDA's mission come to life as they are training to become ethical servant leaders in and out of the classroom.
    We are so proud of Brayden, Luke, Patrick and Evan for their high achievements.

  • Collin County Alumni Chapel

    “When you’re at CDA, most things have a set schedule. You don’t necessarily get to have options on when you do things, but in college, you get to choose.”
    “Because you typically have more free time, you get to decide whether or not you fill that time with community, classwork, or even self-care.”
    Making sure students fill that time wisely was a near-unanimous piece of advice that the alumni wanted to present to CDA’s high schoolers.
    In addition to time management, leadership training, and using time in college to grow yourself, the biggest takeaway was to appreciate how CDA created a strong foundation for their faith.
    “My world exploded after leaving CDA,” expressed one Alumnus, “whatever you have planned, be excited that the Lord might take it and toss it out of the window.” Another shared, “Being a part of CDA reaffirmed my faith and who I am, which made it easier to step into college where people have lots of different beliefs than me.”
    Hearing these wise and ethical servant leaders speak, everyone seemed to be entranced at their humble knowledge that was shared with the current class. The Collin County Campus feels honored to have hosted the esteemed panel, welcoming these past students back with open arms, and are thankful for their willingness to share and continue to contribute to the CDA community as a whole.
