We adore Coram Deo. Our children have thrived @ CDA. The academic program, teachers, and facilities are outstanding. It is such a warm, loving, and fun school. We love their Friday elective programs as well.

CDA has been a great experience for our children. We found a high quality education with a strong focus on values, supported by committed and caring faculty. Extra-curricular opportunities continue to grow with the school.

We love Coram Deo Academy for all its acedmic excellence and especially for incorporating faith into the curriculum. Such a blessing to be apart if this school.

Our two children have been attending CDA for the last 4 years. It has been a wonderful experience for all of us. The faculty has been most helpful and supporting as we have the 7th grader in a 5 day on campus program and the 5th grader going 2 days on campus and 3 day at home campus. Assignments and keys are readily available so the home days are busy but not impossible. The kids like the electives of art, music and theater. The 5th grader loves the Latin classes. And the uniforms make it easy to decide what to wear today. ;) We think going to CDA was the best decision we have made for the children's future.

Great school with rigorous academics, strong Christian values, and warm environment! Challenging for students academically, athletically, and spiritually.

This is our 14th year at Coram Deo Academy! We are so thankful for the extra family time provided combined with an excellent Christian classical curriculum.

CDA is a rigorous school that teaches literature, math, science, athletics, the arts, etc. from a Biblical perspective. It is not for the faint of heart, but for those whose hearts genuinely yearn to grow deeper in God's truth and love. CDA's university model encourages students to manage their on and off days well. Parents (especially of younger students) stay connected with their students as they homeschool on the off days. Our sons are now in high school, and I appreciate how they continue to value our input even as they have become increasingly independent over the years. College guidance directs older students to pursue God's plan for their lives. I would highly recommend CDA to anyone seeking God's definition of success in their children's lives!

Top notch academics, great family atmosphere, and a positive peer culture are just a few of the things my family appreciates about Coram Deo!

This school has been a great experience for my family. It's opened doors for great conversations about the Lord with my children. Also, it's allowed rigorous education while increasing our time together and depth of understanding of each other.

Coram Deo Academy provides an excellent academic education as well as wonderful social and extracurricular activities. The work definitely challenges the students, and parent involvement is a must. The teachers and staff truly care about each and every student, and they include teaching the gospel in every subject. Having college age children now that attended CDA, I can say CDA prepared them very well for that next educational step. We highly recommend it!

We love this school! It's been a blessing to watch our kids grow - mind, soul and body. The one downside would be a few classes in 7th grade that can be frustrating.

Coram Deo has been amazing. Coming from a public school kindergarten to CDA for first grade was a night and day difference. Watching first graders graph sentences, explore history, use deductive reasoning, work simple algebra, and read essays before their class; has been a beautiful reminder of how capable our children truly are when the right instruction, love and encouragement is being lavished on them. -- The electives are fun to choose each year, and the flexible scheduling is much appreciated. My daughter loves going to school and actually misses it during Spring and Summer breaks.

Coram Deo Academy is more than a school, it is an extension of family. Each family at CDA walks out their faith with a sincere dedication to raising their children to bring glory to God. The Christian environment is priority at CDA- the teachers, staff, and administrators all pour in to these students with love and devotion reflecting who they are in Jesus Christ. The collaborative model serves to keep parents involved in their students` education as the primary instructors in their child`s life. While to some this may seem taxing, there is an incredible amount of support offered by the CDA community to help families transition to this type of education. The classical instruction my children have received has opened their eyes and broadened their thinking to a Christian worldview. I have 2 students who have attended CDA for the past 8 years. One is a current student, and one has gone on to a successful college career in a large public university. She often tells others how fortunate she was to have been well prepared for university level courses because of the incredible instruction she received during her years at CDA.

This school is top notch all the way. The academics are above and beyond with the most committed teachers and administrators. The students truly stand out as such a bright, well-spoken, and well-mannered group. The quality of all that is offered at Coram Deo is amazing!

We love CDA! We have found it to be a wonderful school with strong academics and caring teachers. We appreciate the university-model schedule that allows us to participate in our children's education.

We were skeptical that we could afford private school, but Coram Deo Academy was very affordable for our family. I have one graduate from CDA and have a high school student enrolled currently. The graduate was fully prepared for his college experience and is a working professional now. Both children enjoyed extracurriculars and Christian relationships that would not have been options in public school. Faculty and staff are at the top of their fields and are grace-filled people that are concerned with the whole student. We love CDA!

After sending three of my children through this school from elementary to graduation from High School, and seeing all of them enter college with scholarships, the first graduating with honors and a great job, one heading into being a Dr. and one beginning college in a Boston medical college, I heartily endorse this school.

CDA, Collin County campus, is an excellent school. The staff is highly qualified and is invested in the success of each student. It is a challenging curriculum that prepares the students for a successful college experience, as well as life outside of school. The extracurricular activities we have participated in- basketball, art, speech/debate, and choir- have been of great benefit and personally rewarding to each of my children.

My children attended CDA for 26 combined years. This is a great school and totally prepared my children for college and beyond. Their collaborative model enable us to have more family time. I highly recommend Coram Deo Academy.

Three of our children have attended Coram Deo Academy Flower Mound campus over the past 12 years. We have been so blessed by the quality of education and opportunities for our children. It is an outstanding community of engaged parents and teachers. Our oldest is now in college, and CDA prepared him well.

We have had a great experience with this school and many of the families that are involved. I have 3 children that attend and have now completed almost every grade. It has been a very nice fit for us. I highly recommend!

It's our first year for my oldest son who is in kindergarten. We are so happy to have made the decision to come to Coram Deo Academy in Plano. It's God first school and education is excellent. Teachers and all of administration love the students. I highly recommend Coram Deo Academy.

Coram Deo has been a wonderful fit for our family. We love that the curriculum coincides with our faith, and the core program offers great flexibility for our family. The teachers are gifted, caring, and well qualified. CDA offers a wonderful learning environment.

CDA provides an extraordinary education for families willing to invest in the model (classical, collaborative, Christian).. Students develop strong critical thinking, speaking, and writing skills setting a solid foundation for whatever field the student chooses to pursue later. The teachers are fabulous and truly invest in each student. The arts programs (choir, drama, speech, visual, and band) are strong and welcoming to all students.
