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.

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!

  • 3rd Graders Learn about Illuminations

    In history, our 3rd graders learn about the Middle Ages and early Church history.  One of the fun activities associated with this course of study is creating their own illuminations. Early Christian scribes would bring beauty to the hand-written pages of Scripture by turning letters into works of art..  Here, our own students create beautiful letters of their initials.

    You are Invited to our May 15, 2021 Commencement
    CDA-CC  HS  Senior Class of 2021: 

    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, 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.  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 2021 seniors to give you an opportunity to meet them before you join us for the celebration May 15.  This week’s featured senior is Trey Bergstrom.

    Siblings:  Cole Bergstrom (Class of 2019), Bryn Bergstrom (7th)

    Grade started CDA: 2nd 

    Activities while in HS :  Worship band for church and school, Club Soccer, Varsity Co-ed Soccer, Track, Choir, Firehouse Subs employee

    Favorite moment at CDA:  My favorite memory from CDA was participating in the first ever Collin County Rhetoric School soccer team. I will always have fond memories of being able to play the sport that I love with my best friends.

    Colleges applied to: Texas Tech, Belmont, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M

    Possible career path:  Business

    How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God?  The relationships I have made with both teachers and students while at CDA, along with participating in various different electives have taught me what Christian leadership looks like. Along with this, the Theology I and II classes have helped me in building, a firm, logical foundation for my beliefs.

  • Join the Lions Club!

    School has started and so have athletics on our wonderful Collin County campus!  With the first games less than a month away, the time is now to join the Lions Club to grab those season passes for home games, the sweet t-shirts, and support Lion Athletics as we get ready for great seasons ahead.  The Lions Club enables our athletic programs to better prepare for competition by making it possible to purchase more training tools like blocking dummies, weighted basketballs and resistance bands for volleyball that help us raise our level as a program!  

    Also this year, we are adding the opportunity to "Fly Your Flag" in the CDA gym for the year.  If you have a university you are particularly fond of, you can contribute to the Athletics Fund to see your school's flag flying in our gym all year long.
