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 Electives, Fine Arts, and Athletics 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 5th-8th grades move through the Logic stage of the trivium. During this stage, they study the relationship between facts learned during 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.


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.

Sports & Physical Education

Our Athletics and PE program have 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. PreK through 3rd grade students play on parent-volunteer led teams that compete in local recreational leagues. Beginning in the 4th grade, we offer official athletic teams. Students in 4th-6th grades play in the CSAF league, 7th-8th grade students play in the IAA league, and high school students play in TAPPS (Texas Association of Private & Parochial Schools). 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.

Our Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) serves our campus by building a tight-knit community among our families and teachers, supporting our campus administrators and teachers so they can do their work effectively, and advancing our school’s mission. The PTF is the umbrella for all parent volunteer opportunities on our campus.

    Christian, Collaborative Education, A Model That Endures to the Next Generation

    For many CDA Dallas parents, classical, Christian, collaborative education is entirely new. My first real exposure to a University-Model® education was through my husband, Jared. For Jared, and two other CDA Dallas parents, Andrew and Ana Bobo, the University-Model® was not a new concept. It was a concept that profoundly impacted their education and spiritual formation. These three parents graduated in 2008 from the first University-Model® school in the country, Grace Preparatory Academy.
