Christian Education

The mission of Coram Deo Academy is to train ethical servant-leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God. We approach this mission from a distinctively Christian perspective. How this plays out in the life of our school is most clearly seen in our ecumenical approach, our committed faculty, and our curriculum and school life.
 
Interdenominational
Without ties to a specific church or denomination, we attract faculty and students from a variety of Christian churches and denominations. With Christians throughout the ages and around the world, we are united together in our commitment to the Scriptures as the Word of God, and we affirm the faith summarized in the words of the Nicene Creed. Rather than viewing our theological diversity as a hindrance to our mission, we embrace the opportunity to begin conversations about our faith in the classroom, which are then brought into your homes and churches. In an increasingly polarized culture, our students graduate with an appreciation for the diverse ways that Christians of different traditions understand the particulars of our faith.
 
Our Committed Faculty
Beyond the classroom, students enter into relationships with teachers, staff, and coaches who all seek to model a life lived coram Deo — in the presence of God. In this sense we see theological education at Coram Deo Academy as modeling Paul’s ministry with the church in Thessalonica.

1 Thessalonians 2:8

We care so deeply for you that we are determined to share with you not only the gospel of God, but also our own selves, because you have become very dear to us.

On a daily basis students are surrounded by caring adults who see our students as human beings on the path of being made more and more like Jesus, not just as minds waiting to be filled with information.

Our Curriculum and School Life
A worldview that is rooted in the Bible and Christian theology makes its way into every course we teach, regardless of whether or not the textbook or other classroom tools are created by a Christian publisher. Our highly-trained teachers integrate this worldview into all of our Math, Science, History, Language, and enrichment courses. We require several formal Bible and Theology courses from K-12th grade, and we also offer a full lineup of High School Theology electives.
 
Our Chapel services, which are tailored for each of our various age groups, focus on reading Scripture, prayer, and worship through song. We also have several opportunities for our older students to serve as leaders in various spiritual development offerings.
