List of 6 items.

  • 2. Register for Electives

    CDA offers a rich selection of elective classes for students in grades K-12. Rhetoric School (high school) students have required electives, such as science labs and fine arts on Fridays. Students on athletic teams may need to attend practices before and after school on both at-home learning days and on-campus learning days.

    New students must complete the admissions process and be enrolled in order to register for athletics and fine arts as well as make core selections such as foreign language, AP/dual credit, and science labs.

    Elective tuition is non-refundable after July 31. The complete electives policy, including drop/change fees, may be found 
    here. Please contact your school office/registrar for assistance with electives questions and schedule adjustments.
  • 3. Attend Events for New Families

    Once enrolled, you will be invited to join campus specific events designed to help new families acclimate to Coram Deo Academy and connect with others in our community. Typically held in late spring or early summer, new and returning families get together to learn how to prepare for the coming school year.
  • 4. Order Books and Uniforms

    Although some curriculum items are distributed in the classroom, the majority of books are purchased by the family. Summer Reading information usually is available in May. The School Year Book List generally is published by mid-summer. Parents of newly enrolled students will receive information on how to access the book list when it is released.

    Parents also are responsible for ordering uniforms before the start of school.
  • 5. Academic Preparation

    In addition to required summer reading, various summer camps may be offered for optional enrichment. If extra math or other academic preparation is needed, this will be discussed in your family interview. 

    Students entering 6th grade and above with no previous Latin exposure benefit from participating in Latin Summer Camp prior to the start of school. Choose the date/location which best fits your family's summer schedule:

    Session 1: the week of June 10, hosted at the Collin County Campus
    Session 2: the week of July 15, hosted at the Flower Mound Campus

    If your child has studied Latin, arrangements can be made for a placement test by contacting the school office.
  • 6. Attend Parent Orientation (August 2024)

    Because of the collaborative nature of CDA's model, orientations are mandatory; this ensures the best possible start to our educational partnership. Orientations typically are scheduled the week prior to the first day of school and at least one parent must attend. At the logic and rhetoric school levels (grades 5-12), students often participate as well. Please consult the campus calendar for specific dates/times and watch for email announcements from your school principal.
