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!

  • CDA District Choirs Excel in Competition

    51 Choir students from Collin County and Flower Mound attended Solo and Ensemble Competition  Saturday, February 23 in Frisco at Legacy Christian Academy. We had two large ensembles, two quartets and 12 solos for a total of 66 first division ratings! I am incredibly proud of these students and all of their hard work!
  • CDA serving with "Feed My Starving Children"

    On March 1 & 2, around 120 of our CDA Colllin County students, parents and faculty came together with the  Christian ministy, Feed My Starving Children to help towards the preparation of over 1 million meals for kids facing the perils of starvation.  This is the fourth year that we as a school have been able to partner with the ministry.  A special thanks goes out to our Mon/Wed/Friday Front Desk Assistant, Mrs. Kristen Cachero, who coordinated and organzied the sign ups for the event.  
  • Chivalry & Modesty: March 20 & 21 Grades 5-12 8:05-8:45 a.m.

    Logic & Rhetoric Families, 

    I am pleased to announce that we will be having  special "Chivalry and Modesty" messages for all students grades 5-12 on Wed and Thurs, March 20-21 from 8:05-8:45 a.m. (followed by a normal school day, just with periods shortened by 5 minutes).  

    This is an initiative that was started by our current Dean of Schools and former headmaster, Mr. Bill Rector.  The objective of these presentations is to speak into the lives of Logic & Rhetoric guys and girls through four separate, simultaneous messages designed to encourage and spur students to pursue God's purposes in their friendships and character. 

    At different points this year, some of you have spoken to me about your desire to see something like this, so your prayers would certainly appreciated.  More than that, in the spirit of our collaborative model, I wanted to invite you as parents to come, as well.  The only thing we would ask is that the moms go to the girls only talks and the dads to the boys talks.  

    Our speaker line up will include the following:
    Mrs. Crystal Summers in the gym to our Logic level girls on both days 
    Mrs. Stephanie Garland in room 403-404 to our Rhetoric level girls on both days 
    Mr. Nathan Hudler (for now) in room 401 to our Rhetoric level guys on both days 
    Mr. Bill Rector and I will be speaking on alternate days to the Logic level boys, for now in room 301 of the modular buildings (this may change). 

    Please let me know if you have questions, and also if you as a parent plan on attending a time and also which session you would like (this may affect our room options, particularly for me and Mr. Hudler).

  • Getting to know senior Victoria Patterson

    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,
    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:   Victoria Jayne Patterson
    Siblings: Catherine (Class of 2014)

    Grade started CDA: 4th Grade

    Activities while in HS : Piano, art, tutoring, cheerleading, tumbling, youth group, and volunteering with the preschoolers at church every week.

    Favorite moment at CDA: My favorite moment at CDA was getting to cheer at all the football games during high school. Every single game was so much fun and I have amazing memories cheering the Lions on with my friends.

    Colleges applied to: Dallas Baptist University (accepted), Baylor University, and University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (accepted)

    Possible career path: Elementary Education

    How has CDA prepared you to be an ethical servant leader and wise thinker in order to shape culture for the glory of God? Through the teachers I have been blessed with and the many friends I have encountered at CDA, I have been trained to think about my actions and how they can reflect my faith, ask questions about my faith and seek the answers, and to love others always. CDA has overall provided me with an environment that has allowed me to cultivate my faith and learn the practical ways I can live out my faith and love for God once I begin the next chapter in my life.
  • A Festival of Pharoahs

    What a busy week we had on campus this week before Spring Break.  Our first graders celebrated their history time line - the Old Testament patriarchs and Ancient Egypt. Since history is the backbone of the grammar school curriculum, our first graders begin at the beginning.  From the days of creation to the exodus, our students learn how God's hand is weaving His plan through human history. Thank you parents and teachers for making the festivals this week so special for the students.
  • Congrats to our Semifinalists!

    The Lady Lions Varsity Basketball team traveled to Robinson, TX, to compete in the TAPPS 2A State Tournament on Friday of last week.  The team competed admirably and continued to fight the entire game before seeing their season come to an end against the eventual state champs.  Ashley Faux and Sophia Engman were named to the All-Tournament team for their play during the semifinal game.  The future is very bright for the Lady Lions, as they have the opportunity to return their entire roster to chase a state title again next year.  This season was an amazing start for our first-year varsity girls basketball team!  
  • Final Four Shirts Still Available!

    To commerate the Lady Lions run to the semifinals, the athletic department printed up a limited quantity of long-sleeve shirts to celebrate the team's success.  There are a few remaining shirts available for purchase for $20 at the CDA-Collin County front desk.  The shirts are first-come, first-serve, and cannot be reserved by email request.  They are spirit wear acceptable for students.  Sizes still available are small, medium & extra-large.
