CDA-CC Grammar, Logic & High School Families:
See the Future Now
Save the Date: Saturday, May 16th, at 4:00 p.m. at Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, TX.
Have you ever wondered– What is the purpose of all of the hours of memorization, tests, assignments that you have to work through as CDA families? Our mission is to raise up ethical servant leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God. The CDA-Collin County Commencement is an opportunity to see all this come together as you watch our students prepare for the next season of life. Whether you are a pre-K or 11th grade family (or anywhere in between), please plan on joining us for this day and prepare to be encouraged! Over the next several months, we will be featuring our class of 2020 seniors to give you an opportunity to meet them before you join us for the celebration May 16. This week’s featured senior is Matthew “Benjamin” Crespo.

Activities while in HS: Internship at Spector Chiropractic, Carline Patrol Coordinator, Churchill’s Chaplain, Churchill’s Community Service Coordinator, Assistant Martial Arts Instructor, Martial Arts, Youth Choir
Favorite moments at CDA: My favorite moments were sharing weekly devotionals as Chaplain and forming the Carline Patrol because these gave me the opportunity to connect with CDA students of all levels and encourage them during their time at CDA. I enjoyed praying for, sharing with, and listening to fellow Rhetoric students during devotions, as well as greeting Grammar students in the carline and sending them off to class with a smile on their faces.
Colleges applied to: Texas A&M University, Baylor University
Possible career path: Medical Doctor (possibly Oncologist)
How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? As Churchill’s Chaplain, I was blessed with the opportunity and responsibility to delve deeper into God’s Word. As I spent time daily in the Bible, I learned more about God’s standard on right and wrong and His absolute truths were further cemented in my mind. This in conjunction with CDA’s Bible-based curriculum equipped me with a stronger and more informed faith in God that will prove invaluable in helping me withstand the ungodly influences of our culture and instead shape it for the glory of God.
