Have you ever wondered, what is the purpose of all the hours of memorization, tests, assignments that the students work through here at Coram Deo Academy? Our objective in all the work, activities, sports, and student life here is to 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 our senior class, each one of the twenty of them, 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 engage in this educational model that is Coram Deo Academy!
Siblings: Benjamin (junior at CDA), Joshua , Ethan, Noah all non-CDA graduates.
Grade started CDA: 9th Grade
Activities while in HS : I served at my church as a small group leader and in AWANA, I played football for three years here, I worked at Chili’s for about 8 months, I have been in drama since 10th grade and played Ernest in the Importance of Being Earnest. I have gone to Honduras on a mission trip with Jacob Wallace and Taylor Mathews. I have been somewhat involved in youth leadership training at my church.
Favorite moment at CDA: In my freshman year, one of the most meaningful things was riding with Trey McCalley along with Alex Koele to football and just feeling like I was a part of the school almost immediately.
Colleges applied to: ACU, Baylor and I intend to apply to A&M, Ohio State, Cal Tech, University of Chicago, and Ouachita Baptist. By casting a wide net I hope for God to lead me where he sees fit.
Possible career path: I want to study chemistry and determine whether I should go into chemical engineering or medicine. I want to have useful skills (either engineering solutions to problems or being a doctor) which I can then use in another country while also teaching.
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 made me realize that my intelligence, while most assuredly a gift from God, means nothing if I don’t have a genuine passion for knowing God and loving people and so I hope to develop both of those further for the rest of my life while using my intelligence to help people and represent my faith well.
