Craftsmanship and Character
Our Graduates Say…
The older I get, the more thankful I become for the education Coram Deo has provided me. I have learned how to reason logically, persuade effectively & communicate clearly and with grace.
Coram Deo helped me as a scholar by providing a rigorous curriculum & high expectations from my teachers, requiring a great deal of dedication to my school work. The community of strong believers helped grow me in my faith, allowing me to be open with others and comfortable sharing Christ with others. CDA also showed me how Christ is preeminent in all areas of life.
Scholarship is about asking questions and pursuing truth. I think Classical Christian education instills intellectual curiosity & reassurance that truth exists.
The Guilds, Grit, Grace, and Growth Apprenticeships & Senior Thesis:
Coram Deo integrates the liberal arts with real-world applications through Guilds that apprentice students in artistic and professional skills: dramatic performance and stagecraft (Actors’ Guild), graphic design and photoshop (Designers’ Guild), leadership and presentations (Orators’ Guild), and financial management (Bookkeepers’ Guild).
These three apprenticeships culminate in the Senior Thesis defense, and catalyze the fulfillment of the portrait of the graduate, equipping students as contagious Christians, lifelong learners, critical & creative thinkers, compelling communicators and legacy leaders.
Classical Christian Education is a time-tested method of equipping students to become lifelong learners. At Coram Deo Academy, we combine this methodology with a distinctly and consistently Christ-centered approach.
