Coram Deo Academy of Dallas, established in 2006, is a classical Christian school located near Hillcrest and 635. The CDA Dallas campus serves over 200 families and 390 students in grades PreK-12. We are a University-model school, offering both Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday programs for students, in addition to robust Elective, Fine Arts, and Athletic programs that meet on Fridays and after school.


Grammar School (PreK-4th) is the foundation of the trivium in classical education. We strive to create a sense of wonder and a love of learning through a Christian worldview lens during these years. The grammar stage focuses on building long-term memory such as phonics rules, spelling rules, and math facts.


Students in grades 5 – 8 move through the Logic stage of the trivium. During this stage, they study the relationship between facts learned at the Grammar stage. Students dialogue with one another as they explore how God reveals himself through the truth, goodness, and beauty present in all subjects. Read More..


The Rhetoric School (Grades 9-12) is the pinnacle of the trivium in PreK-12 Classical education. In the Rhetoric School, students begin to seek wisdom through the content they are learning. Mastery of this stage requires the articulation of learning through oral and written expression. For CDA students this includes, but is not limited to, speeches, debates, papers, working with original source documents, and proofs in mathematics. Read More..

Sports & Physical Education

Our Athletics/PE program has options available to every student. Grammar students attend PE on their days at school. Additional Friday PE Electives are available to all ages as well. Pre-K through 3rd grade students play on Parent-volunteer led recreational teams that compete in local rec leagues. Beginning in the 4th grade, we offer official Athletic teams. 4th-6th grade students play in the CSAF league, 7th-8th grade students play in the IAA league, and high school students play in the TAPPS league. Current athletic offerings include Girls Volleyball, Co-ed Soccer, Co-ed Cross Country, Boys and Girls basketball, Boys Baseball, Co-ed Track and Field. Our goal in all competitive Sports is to train students to win with humility and lose with dignity.
