Collin County | Plano

CDA Collin County is a classical Christian school in Plano, established in 2004. The Collin County Campus currently serves over 520 students attending grades PreK through 12.




Grammar

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. Read More..

Logic

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. Read More..

Rhetoric

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. Read More..






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!

  • Symphonic Band TPSMEA Concert

    Last Thursday, members of the CDA Collin County Symphonic Band attended the annual TPSMEA Concert and Sight Reading Contest at Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas. The students performed 3 selections they'd been working on all semester, and afterwards they were given a brand new piece of music they had never before seen to sight read in front of the judges. The band performed amazingly both on stage and in sight reading and was awarded first division ratings from all three judges across the board for everything they played! This is the second year strong now in the CDA CC Band's history to earn Sweepstakes, or straight 1's, at this contest. Bravo on your hard work this year, band!
  • CC Student, Aiden Bazzell, commits to High Point University for Soccer

    Aiden Bazzell began playing soccer at the age of 4. When he was 8, he set himself a goal to be part of the Development Academy team when he was older. For the next 4 years, he remained dedicated to that goal, pushing himself to improve and grow and overcoming each obstacle as it was presented to him. When he was 12, he was selected as part of the U13 FC Dallas Development Academy team. Over the next few years, he won numerous accolades with the team; twice wining Liga MX Tournament (2019, 2020), Dallas Cup Champions (2021), MLS Next Texas Cup Champions (2022).
     
    The fall of his junior year (2023), he was being pursued by numerous top D1 programs in the country. While completing visits and finalizing discussions, he landed poorly during training, breaking his right foot. Within days, he had surgery to repair the break and began his recovery. Blessed with access to some of the best technology and physical therapists he worked diligently and, to the amazement of his doctors and therapists, returned to the field 11 weeks later. Unfortunately, this had a serious impact on his college recruiting, stalling discussions and missing major recruiting events.
     
    While this injury had a massive impact on his college recruiting, he returned stronger than ever. In addition, the experience gave him a passion for Physical Therapy and created a foundation for his desire to major in Exercise Science. As he revitalized his college pursuits, we were anxious about his opportunities to play college soccer given the timing of his injury.
     
    In December Aiden reached out to college coaches and invited them to come watch him play in the MLS Next Fest showcase.  Many were able to see him play in that showcase, and we would later find out a few were misinformed that he had already committed to a school.  Mid-February he was asked to come for official visits to two D1 schools of interest. While visiting one of the schools in Charolette, the High Point University coach reached out via social media to clarify Aiden’s committed status.  Realizing that Aiden was in Charlotte, he immediately asked if we could reschedule our flights and visit that Tuesday.  
     
    That evening, Aiden provided additional film and info for the coaching staff to analyze and, early Tuesday morning, Adien was on the HPU campus, visiting with the coaches, team, and touring the campus. He was impressed with the amount effort the coaches had dedicated in a very short amount of time to evaluating his film, preparing the visit, and even reaching out to FC Dallas coaches to learn about him as a player and person.  After the visit, Aiden could see himself at High Point knowing it was a place he could continue to grow and develop not only as a player but as a person.
     
    While visiting, the High Point Head Coach noted Aiden’s unique perspective regarding his college evaluation criteria: a desirable location, a place to get an excellent education in his field of study, coaches that see him as a person and not just a player, and players with character and drive.  High Point exceeded his expectations on all four. 
     
    Aiden had offers from all three schools he visited the previous week. As a family, we discussed and prayed about the right next step for Aiden. They were all good programs, and the offers were mostly comparable. Due to the difference in tuition, HPU would still cost significantly more.  Feeling God leading us to HPU, we were still uncertain until we were informed the school wanted to interview Aiden for both an advanced Presidential scholarship as well as recommend him for a fellowship opportunity in his field of study.
     
    We believe God’s hand moved in this moment in Aiden’s life. Looking back, the series of “coincidences” and timing that led to the moment he committed to HPU are too unreal to be anything else but His hand. After an enormous setback, Aiden will attend a top university next fall and play for a D1 team that consistently wins their conference and has appeared at the NCAA D1 Tournament 3 times in the last 4 years.
     
    Aiden’s work ethic and athletic ability provided him this unique opportunity; but it was his education and academic performance that enabled him to seize the opportunity at HPU to continue his education and soccer journey. Unlike football and basketball where students are granted full scholarships based on headcount statistics, soccer is a scholarship allocation sport dominated by partial scholarships. It is extremely rare for a student to receive a full athletic scholarship in allocation sports. Through Aiden’s academic credentials, he received the financial support that allowed him to commit to HPU.
     
    CDA not only provided him an exceptional education, but the football program at CDA also provided Aiden with an unforgettable experience. This was a unique opportunity, having missed out on the high school sports experience due to the commitments of the FC Dallas MLS Next team. Going into his Senior year, he wanted the experience of being part of a team with his classmates. The boys had begged him to play since junior high. After talking with the coaches, the initial plan was for him to just be a kicker, maybe having the rare opportunity to play the field occasionally. Aiden eventually solidified a spot on the defensive line, creating a powerful and dynamic defensive pair with Cameron Kirk. Except in pre-season games, Aiden never kicked a football.
     
    Aiden has repeatedly mentioned his coaches and teammates at CDA for making this short season of his life something to always remember. They lifted him up and encouraged him on and off the field. The coaches were amazing leaders and examples of how to be a man of God to those around you.  Men he could respect and look up to as examples. He will forever be grateful for the brief time and experiences he had with the CDA football team, and the true sense of camaraderie and fellowship created by the coaches and team.
     
  • Cheer Wraps Up Season in Showcase

    The Collin County Cheerleading team wrapped up the end of their season in a memorable showcase to family, friends and peers. 
    Coaches, Brittany Evans and Eryn Hall, both coordinated the Grammar School's elective Friday cheer class to start the show. These cheerleaders in training showed off their learned skills in a lively routine. 
    For both Varsity and Junior High teams, there were routines with popular music and incredible stunts from the cheerleaders. 
    For CDA, we know that God has given us as His children the abilities to jump and shout for joy, and these girls exemplify this well.
