Collin County | Plano

The Collin County Campus was originally established in 2004 with K – 8th grade.  In 2009, we were blessed to start our high school, and in May 2013, we celebrated our first graduating class.   In January 2015, the Collin County campus moved into their newly constructed campus combining all grades.  The new facility is complete with classrooms, science labs, a gym, stage and playground.  The Collin County Campus serves over 430 students attending grades PreK through 12th.

List of 3 items.

  • Grammar School

    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.  Each class also has an annual festival which gives students the opportunity to share what they have learned with their fellow classmates and parents - it is fun way to start public speaking at an early age!

  • Logic School

    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.  They also are examining arguments.  Although Bible is not a separate subject after 5th grade, a Biblical worldview is interwoven into the teaching of all subjects.

  • High School

    Students in high school are striving to master the Rhetoric stage of learning.  This stage requires students to articulate their learning through oral and written expression.  They do this through speeches, debates and papers, as well as, proofs in mathematics.

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!

  • The Van Eerdens

    Coram Deo Is A Blessing - The Van Eerdens

    This is our 2nd year at CDA and it is a tremendous blessing to our family.  CDA desires “to train the next generation of ethical servant leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God.”  We have observed CDA to be a school that excels at their mission and we thank God for it.
  • An update regarding the Logic/HS carline

    An Update regarding the Logic/HS Carline

    Logic & High School families, thank you for helping the process of carline go as safely and efficiently as possible!

    As we go into our 4th quarter, I wanted to send a couple of carline updates:

    1) if you are a part of the Logic/High School carline, please do not line up in position at the church lot until 2:30 p.m.  We want to make sure that the lot is not blocked off for the grammar cars that need to come through.  Mr. Hines or me will release cars in position at the church lot to come over to the carline around 2:40 p.m. in time for the 2:45 p.m. Logic/HS dimissal.  

    2) Please do not go through the first entrance into the church when you are coming on the south bound lane Independence from 121, but rather go through the main/middle entrance during the carline.  It can cause traffic to spill out prematurely on Independence and also can create problems with the flow of traffic of the carline itself.

    Let me know if you have any questions at  Thank you! 

  • Coach Manuel Challenges 12th Grade Theology II Students

    CDA CC's Head Basketball and PE coach Ryan Manuel is known and appreciated by our families and students  as he is one of the first people to greet kids in the morning in carline, encourage the grammar children during the day at PE, and coach the  upper school students in the afternoon with PE or his role with our High School basketball team. However, many do not know about his journey from being a part of the SMU basketball team coached by the legendary Larry Brown to various stints with basketball teams, nor his relationship with the Lord.  Coach took sometime this last week to encourage our 12th graders as they prepare to transition from Coram Deo unto the university.  He spoke to them as a brother in Christ exhorting them to honor Christ and pursue His purposes for them as they enter their life in college.  We have been blessed with some amazing coaches and are grateful for opportunities like this when one crosses over from the gym into the classroom to share their valuable life experience.  Thank you, Coach Manuel!
  • Hands on Science This Week

    The weather outside was a little wet - and so was our classroom!  This week our K-1 science class learned about some scientific aspect of water.  The 2nd-4th class had snail races and a snail pull!  Now, where are the paper towels?

  • Senior Spotlight - Max Meade

    CDA-CC Grammar, Logic & High School Families: See the Future Now
    You are Invited to our May 13, 2017 Commencement
    CDA-CC  HS  Senior Class of 2017: 
    Save the Date: Saturday, May  13th, at 4:00 p.m. at Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, TX.

    Have you ever wondered, what is the purpose of all of the hours of memorization, tests, assignments that you have to work through as CDA families?  Our goal is to raise up ethical servant leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God.   The CDA-Collin County Commencement is an opportunity to see all this come together as you watch our students prepare for the next season of life.  Whether your are a pre-K or 11th grade family (or anywhere in between), please plan on joining us for this day and prepare to be encouraged!  Over the next several weeks  we will continue to feature our class of 2017 seniors to give you an opportunity to meet them before you join us for the celebration May 13.  This week’s featured senior is Luis Maximilian Meade V.

    Siblings:  Rachel Meade (2015 graduate) & Emily Meade (10th grade)

    Activities while in HS:  Track, Cross Country, Speech & Debate, Rita’s Ice & Custard

    Favorite moment at CDA:  During my junior year I went to the TAPPS State Competition for Speech & Debate and placed 4th place in domestic extemporaneous speaking.   Also, when I was in 8th grade, I high fived David Mullen, and that high five was exceptional in every way, surpassing every high five I have participated in since.

    Colleges applied to:  Oklahoma State University, Texas Tech University & Mary Hardin Baylor

    Possible career path:  Constitutional Attorney, Judge, Congressman

    How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God?  I used to understand leadership in the context of power (i.e. someone with more power is the leader) but CDA changed that perspective and I now understand leadership through the context of respect, as a leader must respect others enough to humble him or herself to their peers and lead by example.
  • 7th grader Shelby Shanahan working on her skeletal chart

    Making 7th grade science "Life Size"

    Dr. Janice Arion & Tina Van Zeeland's 7th grade life science class has been studying human body systems (anatomy and physiology).  To aid in their study, the students  created life-size "body charts" this week representing the skeletal system.  Activities like this reinforce concepts with hands-on experience as students examine the intricacies of God's creation.
