CDA Alumni: Leaving an Impact

When CDA speaks of “Training ethical servant-leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God,” our faithful desire is to see a legacy of Christian leadership and service to our Lord Jesus Christ in all areas of world influence.
Since 1999, we at Coram Deo Academy have been called to support parents as they teach children “in the presence of God” with a time-honored tradition called classical education. This historic approach formed some of the world’s greatest hearts and minds from the early Church Fathers to America’s Founding Fathers, providing the bedrock for the church and Western Civilization. So stewardship of our mission resounds in every area of our planning and purpose. The school’s success is seen best in our students’ lives.
