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.

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!

Collin County Campus News

List of 8 news stories.

  • We Love Reading

    How do we learn to love to read?  We model those around us who love to read.  Apparently, our second graders have caught the reading bug!  I took this during the lunch recess this week.  Here is a rather large group of students who chose to sit and read instead of play.  And while running and playing is important for a student's growth and development, I love that some of them chose reading as an alternative in their down time. Thank you parents and teachers who are instilling this in our littles!
  • Mrs. Hudler, the traveller, is attacked by two robbers, Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Monsalve.

    Special Grammar Chapel

    This week our Dean Emeritus and I presented a special chapel to the grammar students.  All year, we've been learning about Jesus' parables, so Mr. Rector and I asked the teachers to help us tell the story of the Good Samaritan.  As we told the story, the teacher acted it out.  Gaging from the student responses, I think it was a hit.  Thank you to our grammar teachers for being such great sports!
  • En Français o Español

    Is your child an auditory learner?  If so, the grammar age is an especially great time to learn a foreign language.  We offer Spanish and French to our littles on Fridays.  Both Mrs. Oaks and Mrs. Petit create an immersive experience in the classroom while the students are learning new vocabulary by giving instruction and directions in the language being learned.  God has blessed us with two bilingual teachers who love their languages and your students!  Here is Mrs. Petit's French class practicing their colors!
  • Kinder Under Construction

    What a week we had in Collin County!  Our kinders reached their 100th math lesson and celebrated all day by building 100s.  Thanks to the teachers and parents who made the day fun and exciting.  A special thanks to Mr. Wong who provided shirts for Mrs. Hudler's class, and to The Home Depot for the construction aprons!
  • 3rd Grade Festivals!

    This week our 3rd graders celebrated their history time line: the Middle Ages and Renaissance!  The students dressed in costume and taught each other about life during these eras.  Thank you students, parents, and teachers for another successful series of festivals.  What a great way to wind down the school year.
  • Pep Rally Highlights

    The 2nd Pep rally in the history of our Collin County Campus took place on Friday, Oct 5th and was certainly a memorable spectacle.  The packed gym, filled with the enthusiastic celebrations of the Rhetoric school houses of Arc, Churchill, Luther and Newton, our Collin County Yell Leaders, athletic teams and a representation of grammar and Logic families reverberated with the excitement fitting for the end of a packed Spirit Week leading up to our annual Homecoming football game.  A special thanks to our Collin County Associate Athletic Director, Josh Nokes, Yell Leader Coach Brittnay Evans, House leadership and spectators for making this such a special event! 
  • We Believe Part Five: “Light from Light”

    The Nicene Creed is carefully framed. As it transitions from its statement that the Creator of all things is the one God we know as Father, it begins a new sentence. “We believe in...” but now the object switches from “one God” to “one Lord.” It is no longer God’s title, but his name, “I Am.” This is a subtle way to signal that we are still dealing with the one God known through the Old Testament Scriptures, but that this God is not just “the Father,” but also “Jesus Christ, the only Son of God.”

    CDA Is My Ace - Jocelyn Nordin

    "CDA has also influenced my faith.  This school has given me the opportunity to understand how God fits in with the rest of the world. We learn how God has a place in math, science, history, English, Latin, sewing, and even athletics, because He is the one who created all these things.  My faith and understanding have grown because of the amazing Bible classes I have been taking at CDA since kindergarten. CDA also helps me understand other religions, their beliefs, and what they are lacking, which makes it easier me to spread the gospel and helps me understand what God offers others through my faith."
