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!

  • House Race and Video Results

    Another great year in the House race has come to a close. This year's final event, as always, was the House Video competition. Virtual watch parties were hosted by the Houses while the judges had plenty of time to review the excellent entries from the comforts of their own homes. The House of Newton was able to secure 1st place for the video but it was not enough to unseat the House of Arc, who held onto their lead from before the break and finished as this years overall House Champion. Churchill finished 2nd in both the video competition and in the overall race. Luther, despite a proud tradition of victory, found themselves in last place in this years race. Each House was lead well by its respective President and officer team. The Rhetoric school will rest up over the summer before returning to try to propel their House to victory in the fall.

  • Meet Senior Lindsay Whittle

    CDA-CC HS Senior Class of 2020:
    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 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 Lindsey Whittle.

    Favorite moment at CDA: It’s hard to pick one moment at Coram Deo to be my favorite because I have too many, but the most prominent memory right now is building the garden with Dr. Arion in AP Environmental Science. I can’t help but smile when I think about the numerous class field trips we took with Dr. Arion and Mr. Hines to Home Depot. We were hauling 50 bags of potting soil around, picking out plants with cool names, arranging them, and decorating the garden with aesthetic signs that we painted. These memories are my favorite because I got to spend my time doing something I love, with the people I love. That’s what high school is all about.

    How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? Going to Coram Deo has taught me that Jesus is the most important thing in my life- not my grades or my success or my friends. The teachers and mentors I’ve had at CDA have shown me that success is measured by personal growth and glorifying God in all you do, not by the red numbers at the top of your assignment. My friends have taught me that true friendship is founded upon the love and grace of God that He gave us by sending His Son to die a death that we deserve upon a cross and raising Him to life again, forgiving us of our sins. Having learned this, I am prepared to face the rest of life ahead of me, knowing I have a friend in Jesus and my merit is based on Him and Him alone. 
  • Coronavirus Can't Stop Book Lovers

  • Ashley Faux of CC nominated to be McDonald's All-American

    Congratulations to senior Ashley Faux from CDA Collin County for being nominated to be a McDonald’s All-American. What an achievement! Way to go, Ashley!
  • 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."
