Collin County | Plano

The Collin County Campus was originally established in 2004 with K – 8th grade. The Collin County Campus currently serves almost 500 students attending grades PreK through 12th.

List of 3 items.

  • Grammar School

    Students in grades PreK-4 are at the grammar stage of learning with a focus on breaking new concepts down to the required fundamental skills or facts and mastering them through memorizing jingles, chants, and songs.  Each class also has an annual festival which gives students the opportunity to share what they have learned with their fellow classmates and parents - it is fun way to start public speaking at an early age!

  • Logic School

    Students in grades 5-8 are moving through the Logic stage of learning.  During this stage, they study the relationship of facts they learned at the grammar stage and how they fit or work together.  They also are examining arguments.  Although Bible is not a separate subject after 5th grade, a Biblical worldview is interwoven into the teaching of all subjects.

  • Rhetoric School

    Students in grades 9-12 are striving to master the Rhetoric stage of learning.  This stage requires students to articulate their learning through oral and written expression.  They do this through speeches, debates and papers, as well as, proofs in mathematics.

Chapel

Grammar, Logic and High School students and teachers have chapel services once a month. The purpose of chapel is to bring students together for a time of corporate worship and a message that focuses on the greatness of God and His work in our lives in a way that would be applicable to Coram Deo students. This time is designed to heighten our awareness of Christ and integrate Him more into our everyday lives.

Parent Community

In Collin County we have several ways for parents to be involved and build community with the teachers and each other.  The best way to do this is through the PTF, Parent Teacher Fellowship.  The PTF serves CDA in three primary ways.  First, they serve as a volunteer base for many of the activities that happen in the classrooms, such as Room Moms, class parties, and Hot Lunch service.  Secondly, they help equip the school through fundraising.  They strive to make our fundraisers fun for the students, but also easy on the parents.  Our most successful is the Hot Lunch program.  We use caterers, like Chick-fil-A, that the children like, and the parents look forward to not having to make a lunch one day a week!  Lastly, and most importantly, our PTF organizes a monthly prayer meeting to pray for the school – students, faculty and administrators.  If you are an enrolled family at the Collin County campus, you are already a member of the PTF, so come and join us!

    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.

    Siblings: Joseph David Crespo (CDA Class of 2019)

    Grade started CDA:   7th grade

    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.

    Siblings: Erin Bryant (Class of 2016)

    Grade started CDA:   Kindergarten

    Activities while in HS: Art, Basketball, Track, Church Choir, High Adventure Treks for Dads and Sons, Market Street Employee, Baskin Robbins Employee

    Favorite moment at CDA: I absolutely loved working on the house videos for Churchill. It’s a lot a stress but so much fun at the same time. These past two years I’ve worked with Jackson Meazell and Taylor Brower at Jackson’s house to finish editing the videos late into the night, and both times were absolutely wild. We had so much fun laughing at our stupid mistakes and our (sometimes) funny ideas.

    Colleges applied to: TAMU

    Possible career path: Writer, Filmmaker, Producer, Journalist

    How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? CDA has prepared me by teaching me both about God and the world. I understand how Christian morals differ from other religions worldwide and how to interact with non-Christians in a way that both showcases my faith and respects their own beliefs. In Theology this year we are learning about the different strategies to introduce Christianity to others and argue a case for God; I will take these strategies with me to college as I grow in my faith and hopefully lead others to it as well.

  • Mrs. Hudler's silly kinders!

    Silly Hat Day!

    This week, our kinders dressed up for their reading of Silly Sally and learning the letter 's'.  Silly hats for everyone!
  • Talking about Virtue & Honor with 5th, 8th & 10th graders!

    As a district of schools, our mission is to train ethical servant leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God.  As a Christian, classical school, we are always looking for intentional steps in and outside the classroom to do this.  Over Oct 23-24, our Collin County Campus took part in a "Virtue & Honor" project that we are currently pursuing on all three of our campuses.  Campus Administrator and Rhetoric principal Dr. Armstrong, Grammar & Logic Principal Mrs. Garland, Dean of Students Mr. Hudler, Rhetoric teacher Mrs. Summers and Dean of Schools Mr. Oaks presented a one-hour long, facilitated discussion on the seven virtues (Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, Temperance, Faith, Hope and Love) and biblical honor, each one speaking to a different class (5th grade Bible, 8th grade history or 10th grade theology)  The goal was to create a grade level appropriate discussion at such critical ages that could continue on for months and years to come.  It was a significant time to address (or in many cases re-address) these concepts and also discuss what it looks like to apply them.  It is our hope that initiatives like these will make a difference in and through the lives of our students that would last well beyond their time here at CDA! 
  • Hands On Science

    In their study of the human body, our 2nd through 4th graders explored their senses by observing spheres made of different materials.  Learning about our God and His creation through science is fun!
