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!

The experiences in class and the examples the teachers have shared with me will continue to impact me throughout my college career.

  • Elena Markwell, 6th MW and Tyler Newcomb, 6th TTh

    Spelling Bee Champion Declared

    Coram Deo Academy has once again produced some outstanding spellers! After the Christmas break, class champions from grades four through eight were determined; they spelled off against each other this Wednesday and Thursday, demonstrating remarkable poise and composure in the face of tremendous competition. We applaud their courage as well as their skill--Well-done, everyone!
     
    The winners from these two bees were Elena Markwell, a sixth-grader from MW, and Tyler Newcomb, a sixth-grader from the TTH class. Both Elena and Tyler were contestants in previous bees as well, so they are to be doubly-congratulated!
     
    Our MW class champions were:
    4th - Connor Chaney and Ezra Sanders
    5th - Emery Markwell and Aurora Whitehead
    6th - Nathan Hancock and Elena Markwell
    7th - Seth Bell and Kelsey Romig
    8th - Anna Johnson and Ethan Markwell
     
    Our TTh class champions were:
    4th - Melanie Bell, Jacob Carson, Brooke DeMeo, Marianna Pirrello
    5th - Josh Gustovich and Brayden Axford
    6th - Jacob Brower, Matthew Langham, Tyler Newcomb, Katie Rhodes
    7th - Noah Gustovich and Aidan Hsaio
    8th - William Cole, Sneha Daniel, Lily Turner, Allie Murray
     
    Believe me, there was a lot of suspenseful moments as our class champions spelled through a total of more than 225 different words for a total of 60 rounds (29 rounds on Day 1 and 31 rounds on Day 2—now that’s close!) Our school champions won their respective matches by spelling “steeplechase” (Elena) and “brethren” (Tyler).
     
    On Friday, Elena and Tyler went head-to-head for several grueling rounds of championship words that were not on any lists they had seen. Ultimately, Tyler emerged as the CDA victor.
    Congratulations to all our winners; Tylerwill be representing CDA at the Collin County Bee on Feb. 12 in Frisco.

    Favorite moment at CDA: My favorite moments were in my 11th grade APES class. I loved the relaxed atmosphere of the class and enjoyed going on fun adventures with my class. Best of all, we all came together and built a very impressive garden. Those sweet memories with my APES peeps will live on forever.

    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 to be an ethical servant and wise thinker through its atmosphere that has surrounded me for many years. Although I have learned a lot about being an ethical leader through the school’s Christ focused curriculum, there is something special about the atmosphere of the school that has shaped me into who I am. Being around different coaches and teachers has provided many examples that I have come to learn from. Even my fellow students have shown me ways that I can approach the world with God by my side. I will forever be grateful for the opportunities and experiences CDA has offered me, and I hope to continue to contribute towards a similar Christ centered atmosphere wherever I go.
