Friday elective classes at Coram Deo help foster your child’s creativity. There is no doubt that creativity is as natural and necessary for children as fresh air and sunshine! By exposing children to creative experiences, we give them the gift of a rich and memorable childhood while laying the foundation for a lifetime of creative expression. Explore the CDA Electives offerings and choose the classes right for your family. We look forward to seeing you on Fridays! Please note that elective offerings vary from campus to campus. Read our elective policies.

CDA Parent

CDA has blessed our family with an abundance of grace, love and truth that has been poured into our children. I am constantly amazed at the teachers and how they love my children so well and teach with enthusiasm, creativity, and energy. We will be at CDA for many years to come!
