School Profile

Founded in 2008, Coram Deo Academy exists to assist parents in their duty of biblically training their children by offering distinctly Christ-centered and Classical academic instruction.

Rather than teaching students to be test-takers, CDA educates the whole child, training them to be lifelong learners. Our holistic curriculum is designed to create scholar disciples who can think critically, communicate persuasively, and serve effectively for the glory of God. Students master Latin, logic, and other subjects essential to developing organized, thoughtful, and eloquent communication.

Biblical Truth

Coram Deo integrates biblical truth into every subject.
Students learn to make Christ the cornerstone in their minds, wills, and hearts to live for the glory of God.

The staff at Coram Deo Academy are devoted participants in local evangelical churches and are worthy of imitation in life and faith. By maintaining small class sizes that promote academic excellence, the faculty at CDA has the time, space, and passion to provide students with a purposeful education from kindergarten to graduation.

The very best thing for our schools to do is to prepare the young for continued learning in later life by giving them the skills of learning and the love of it.

- Mortimer Adler, educator & philosopher

Mission & Values

Classical Christian Education is transformative education. Coram Deo Academy’s two-fold methodology of discipleship and scholarship creates durable disciples who will lead and influence the world with their lives.

Discipleship: Students learn from faithful Christ-followers through instruction, imitation, and practice. Biblical truth is integrated into every subject, so Christ becomes the cornerstone in all areas of life, as modeled by CDA staff.

Scholarship: Students develop a love of learning and cultivate mastery of the tools of learning. Through this mastery, CDA students become lifelong learners.

Scholarship: By equipping our students with the tools, skills, and love of learning, we are able to raise lifelong learners.

Discipleship: By learning from and imitating faithful Christ-followers, our students are trained to have a Christ-centered perspective and approach to all of life.

The greatest legacy one can pass on to one’s children and grandchildren is not money or material things accumulated in one’s life, but rather a legacy of character and faith

– Billy Graham

School  Culture

Our culture is built on a close community of staff, students, and parents, all of whom are committed to CDA’s mission. Instead of elevating the school above the family, Coram Deo Academy partners with families to bring up their children in the training and admonition of the Lord.

“By the time children are twelve years of age, they have spent more hours in school than they have spent with their families and religious community combined. Indeed, it would take seventy-five years of attending church and church school regularly to equal the school’s influence in the first twelve formative years of a person’s life.”

– John Westerhoff, Duke Divinity School
