The Collin County Campus was originally established in 2004 with K – 8th grade. The Collin County Campus currently serves almost 500 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!

  • 2019 Alumni Chapel Highlights

    Last Friday, we were joined by 13 alumni and had a time for a panel of four of our past graduates speak to questions such as "In what way do you feel that CDA best prepare you for college  and ife?", "Please give an example of hou your Christian formation from CDA has helped you in college and life,"  and "What is one piece of advice you would pass on to a current CDA student"?  

    Some of the responses: 
    • I learned how to interact well with my teachers (which carried over well into college)
    • The academic rigor and your time management skills learned at Coram Deo will help you to balance your life in college
    • CDA helped me in learning how to write papers (a much needed skill in the university)
    • The background I received in theology helped me through some challenging situations in college. 
    • Advice: try to relax more while you are here & It is not all about grades (remember that your worth comes from God).  
  • CDA Represents in the Community

    Congratulations to our current and former CDA students involved in a Frisco troop of American Heritage Girls.  They won the prestigious President's Volunteer Service Award.  Click here to read an article published on the FriscoEnterprise website. Way to go, ladies!
  • Feed My Starving Children Opportunity (Response Needed by Jan 18)

    Over the last three years, hundreds of CDA-CC parents and students have had a unique opportunity to make an impact in feeding malnourished children through a program called “Feed My Starving Children.”  The program involves a two hour commitment where we would meet in a local church in Frisco (Stonebriar Community Church; 4801 Legendary Drive, Frisco, TX 75034) in two hour shifts with the goal of packing over  1,000,000 meals to help feed more than 2,700 for a year.  

    We are looking at a possible  two hour shift on Friday, March 1 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. and another on Saturday,  March 2 from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.  Whole families are encouraged to participate (ages 5 and up).  These shifts are not guaranteed for our school until we can give them an accurate idea of how many to expect, so you would need to contact by not later than next Friday, Jan 18 if you would want to sign up for these slots (we would need your e-mail, and the names of the participants and how many adults and children below 18).  

    As soon as we have our total count on Jan 18th, we will try to reserve those shifts and then you would receive a confirmation email.  

    Thank you for your consideration to help make a tangible difference in Christ's name in the lives of others. 
  • Getting to know senior Blake Goodwin

    CDA-CC Grammar, Logic & Rhetoric School Families:
    Meet the CDA-CC Senior Class of 2019!
    Have you ever wondered, how does all of the hours of memorization, tests, 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                                 
    Blake Reed Goodwin
    Siblings:  Lillian  (9th grade)
    Grade started CDA: 8th
    Activities while in HS : Horseback Riding, Band, volunteering at Manegait, working at Starbucks, Tennis
    Favorite moment at CDA: At the homecoming football game 2017 I was handing out flowers to the drill team and tripped, dropping the flowers. I then proceeded to say to the nearest drill team member, “Wow, y’all did so well these flowers were just falling for you.” Later I realized there was an extra flower for Mrs. Bowen… which had broken…
    Colleges applied to: Lynn University, Florida Atlantic University
    Possible career path: Horse Trainer, Olympic Competitor
    How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? Coram Deo has given me the life skills of learning how to deal with a rigorous workload and the stress related to that, as well as strengthening my foundation in God.

  • The Grammar Hallway Timeline Mural is Complete

    Over a year ago, Mr. Oaks and Mrs. Garland created a group of parents and teachers to give ideas and opinions regarding the aesthetic nature of our campus. One of the ideas from that group was a timeline mural for the grammar hallway. After many months of planning and production, the timeline was finally completed this past holiday break. Thanks to everyone who contributed to its creation and installation, including Mrs. Garland's daughters Grace and Georgi, who helped with the painting.

    Next time you're in the grammar hallway, enjoy!

  • Grammar Christmas Parties

    Our grammar students celebrated both the Christmas holidays and the last day of the semester!  Thanks to our parents for making the Christmas parties so much fun!
  • Writing Warriors Complete 167,633 Words!

    Under the encouragement of English teacher Mrs. Crystal Summers, more than twenty Logic & Rhetoric students in Collin County, "the Writing Warriors", wrote over 167,000 words in November in celebration of National Novel Writing Month. Each November, professional and amateur writers from around the world write as many words as they can. The Writing Warrior's total amounts to over 600 manuscript pages, about 30 manuscript pages per student--all completed in a single month. Liesel Smurawa, with 14,000 words, wrote the most words among Logic students; Gabe Ganter, with 19,000 words, wrote the most among Rhetoric students; and English faculty member Miss Hitefield wrote over 25,000 words.
    All of these young writers deserve congratulations on their creative work. 
  • 3rd Grade Castle Projects

    I always look forward to the end of the second quarter because the 3rd graders bring in their castle projects.  Our 3rd graders learn all about the middle ages in history and one of the best ways to teach them about the parts of a castle, since we don't have them here in Texas, is to make their own.  The students use all types of media to construct them - from Legos, to cardboard, to Rice Crispie treats!  Good job, 3rd grade!
