We are now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 school year! You may begin your application here.
Your child’s best opportunity to be considered for our most competitive grades for the 2024-2025 school year will be to submit your application between November 1 and December 15. In order to be considered in Round 1 admissions, your child's application file must be complete by January 19.
If you are unable to complete this process by January 19, your application will be included in future rounds as space is available.
Once your application file(s) are complete, you will be eligible to be invited for an interview. At that time, your Admissions Coordinator will contact you with information on your interview with the school Principal(s)
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.
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.
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.
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:
LATIN CAMP DATES FOR SUMMER OF 2024: Session 1: the week of June 3, hosted at the Dallas Campus Session 2: the week of June 10, hosted at the Collin County Campus Session 3: 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.
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.
As Director of Admissions, Barbara Rogers oversees new student admissions for all CDA campuses and supports reenrollment at the district level. Drawing upon her experience as a homeschooling parent and former college admissions counselor, Barbara has been shepherding new students into the fold of CDA since 2001 and assumed the role of admissions director in 2006.
The Rogers’ family aspired to homeschool classically and turned to CDA for a stronger foundation when the academy opened its doors in 1999. With first-hand knowledge of the school’s Christian, classical, and collaborative program from the grammar through logic to rhetoric stages of learning, Barbara is passionate about helping families embrace CDA’s model. She enthusiastically affirms the investment of time, talent, and treasure is quite worth it!
Barbara earned her BA in Drama from the University of Dallas. She has directed an alumni opera production at UD and also taught Shakespearean drama for CDA. Her husband, Greg, keeps their family amused with his music, poetry and exhaustive knowledge of history. Together they enjoy sharing truth, goodness, and beauty with their adult children and seven grandchildren.
