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!

  • 7th Grade Life Science

    This week our 7th grade scientists practiced making cell membranes out of PlayDoh. 
  • Fine Arts Highlight

    Visual Art 1 is currently studying color theory, learning the relationships on the color wheel, and comparing and contrasting the use of Blue, Red, and Yellow  as primary colors, rather Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow. They will be applying this study in the coming weeks as they copy works by master painters such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Claude Monet.

    Advanced Art is studying the relationships between colors and the principles of design. They created asymmetrical designs, which they then tiled to make a larger  symmetrical one. Each quarter of the design will be painted with a different color theme: Their challenge is to keep the rhythm and unity of the piece while drawing attention to the asymmetry.
  • Grandparents' Day and Book Fair Success

    What great days we had this week!  Wednesday and Thursday our grammar school welcomed and celebrated grandparents and extended family by hosting our annual Grandparents' Day.  The teachers held an open house in their rooms while the PTF hosted the Book Fair, a photo booth, a fun activity, and refreshments.  Thank you to Mrs. Wojinski and her Grandparents' Day team and Mrs. Cheng and her Book Fair team for such a wonderful week!  And, thank you, grandparents, for coming to celebrate and support CDA and your students.
  • Meet Senior Nicholas Bercier

    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, assignments that you have to work through as CDA families? Our goal 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 Nicholas Bercier.

    Siblings:
    Claire Bercier (9th grade)
     
    Grade started CDA: 3rd Grade
    Activities while in HS : Choir, Columbian Squire - Notary, Altar Server, Tennis, VBS Volunteen, Courtesy Clerk at Sprouts
    Favorite moment at CDA: : I have many favorite moments. If I had to choose one, I would choose when we were making the house video last year in Arc. While we were recording the Luther battle, we started to laugh at many weird sayings and just enjoyed the time as a House (and had some good snacks).
    Colleges applied to: Baylor University, Abilene Christian University, Letourneau University, and the University of North Texas
    Possible career path: Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, Anesthesiology, or Accounting
    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 leader through all my teachers. Each and every one has taken the time to help me both in my faith and in classes. They are my role models for my later years. Although I do not want to be a teacher as my career, I want to use what I have learned from them, possibly as a tutor.
  • Grammar Music Class

    We’re excited for our GS new Music Classes! K-1 students are learning how “God Made Music” through a curriculum designed to integrate God’s truth using a wide variety classical & folk music. Students have heard Mozart, Brahms, & more.
     
    2-4 are playing recorder & ukulele, and studying how temple musicians played skillfully before the Lord.
     
    All are learning basic music literacy, notes/rests on the staff. Basics of proper vocal development & singing tone is emphasized as we learn correct usage of the singing voice. We’re using the “Solfege” system of sight-singing (Do Re Mi, etc.) which works wonderfully for music reading.
     
    All are playing melodic percussion instruments (glockenspiels, xylophones & bells). Capping this off with drumming, & incorporating singing games emphasizes many of our skills.
     
    Come join us in Music class, we have plenty of room for more, and your students will LOVE it!
     
    Glen T. Miller, music instructor, has taught all levels of music from K to 12 grade here in north and central east Texas. He has also taught private piano, voice & guitar lessons over the years. He and his wife, Sharon, CDA Choir Director, taught a community wide junior high and high school show choir for many years, and enjoy collaborating over the great things going on currently with CDA Music. Mr. Miller recently retired as a high school choir director for Frisco ISD, after a 38-year career in music education.
