Welcome to Coram Deo Academy! I am Dr. Alan Marshall, and I serve as the President of Coram Deo. We are one school with three campus locations in Dallas, Plano, and Flower Mound, Texas. Our school is distinctively classical, thoroughly Christian, and proudly collaborative. Our mission is to train ethical servant-leaders and wise thinkers to shape culture for the glory of God.
We serve children from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade with strong academics, robust programs, and an emphasis on developing a Christian worldview.
Coram Deo Academy students test an average of one to two standard deviations above the mean on national standardized tests. We believe our dedication to classical Christian pedagogy and family collaboration takes children from wherever they are and elevates them to the be the very best students they can be. We also pride ourselves in training our students to be polite, courteous, and well mannered. “Yes, Sir” and “Yes, Ma’am” are phrases that you will frequently hear from our kids as well as “please” and “thank you.”
Our exceptional faculty and staff are dedicated to providing a classical education that is integrated with Christian values. The classical model relies on the Trivium where students focus on learning and memorizing important facts and rules in the Grammar phase, gain an understanding of these facts and rules in the Logic phase, and better develop their abilities to communicate their understanding in the Rhetoric phase. Since we recognize the importance of teamwork, Coram Deo has a strong athletic program to include, football, soccer, basketball, baseball, softball and other sports. Coram Deo also has a strong fine arts program with band, art, drama, and music. We are committed to providing a solid foundation in math and sciences. We are developing servant leadership in our student body that is modeled in our faculty, staff, and administration.
Please take some time to look at Coram Deo Academy. I believe our school combines the academic rigor of a classical education with the strong moral foundation that comes with a Christ-centered worldview, and the strength that only dedicated family collaboration can provide. We are in an exciting period of growth and renewal where students, teachers, and parents all feel the energy that comes from being involved with a cause greater than self. We hope you come to visit with us and that you will let us show you how enthusiastic we are about our mission of training ethical servant-leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God.
