CDA-CC HS Senior Class of 2022
Save the Date: Saturday, May 14th
Have you ever wondered– What is the purpose of all of the hours of memorization, tests, and 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. If you are a pre-K through 11th grade family, 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 2022 seniors to give you an opportunity to meet them before you join us for the celebration May 14. This week’s featured senior is Mary Dickinson.

Favorite moment at CDA: I have a year’s worth of delightful memories from my sixth grade World History class with Mr. Powell. The Daisy Stone, the whirlpool ride of death (crocodiles included), and the Buddhist telemarketer are a few of the humorous ways in which we engaged with history, and I still find “the giant Jell-O in the sky” a helpful analogy for Hinduism.

How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? Coram Deo Academy has introduced me to pre-Christian thinkers and given me the tools to read some of them in their original language. By appreciating those centuries during which man moved in the dark, searching for Truth, I have a hint of how remarkable and necessary Christ’s advent was. The guidance I have received at CDA has inflamed my passion to share the joy of the Incarnation.
