Getting to know senior Paul Lee

Toby Oaks
CDA-CC Grammar, Logic & Rhetoric School Families:
Meet the CDA-CC Senior Class of 2019!
Have you ever wondered, how do the hours of memorization, tests, and assignments here at Coram Deo Academy come together at the end of a student’s time here?   Our objective in all the work, activities, sports, and student life is to help raise up ethical servant leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God.   For the rest of the year, we will be giving you an opportunity to get to know each one of the 21 members of our senior class.  You will be getting a glimpse of who they are, their aspirations, and what they have learned from their time here.   We hope that in this you will be encouraged as you and your family are a part of this mission, as well!

Now introducing  Paul Michael Lee

How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God?  Being at CDA has instilled in me Christian values that will affect my daily life, especially showing compassion and patience to others. The things I have learned in Theology I and II have increased my understanding about my faith and its intricacies. The best part about those classes, in addition to being able to defend my faith, is their emphasis on how relevant religion is in our daily lives. Also, while I am naturally a quiet person, classes that involve some form of speeches, debates, or discussion have encouraged me to become more open in sharing my ideas in front of people.
