Curriculum

The mission of Coram Deo Academy is to train ethical servant-leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God. This training begins with a community of dedicated Christian instructors, parents, and students who embrace the challenge and rigor of a CDA education. Since all wisdom and knowledge is derived from God, our instructors teach from a Biblical worldview based on the foundation of the creation, fall, and redemption of man.

The curriculum at CDA is taught classically through an approach to learning known as the trivium. In the grammar stage of learning, the focus is on breaking new concepts down to the required fundamental skills or facts and mastering them through memorizing jingles, chants, and songs. The logic stage is the study of the relationship of those parts and how they fit or work together, as well as examining arguments. And finally, the rhetoric stage requires students to articulate their learning through oral and written expression. Students, continuously learning through this time-tested process, acquire the skills that will prepare them to study even more challenging subjects in the future. They are prepared for whatever God ultimately calls them to do because they have mastered the art of learning itself.

At Coram Deo Academy, students in PK4 through 12th grade complete a rigorous, vertically aligned, and systematic course of study. Classical education is an invitation, as one writer puts it, to join the “Great Conversation.” Reading the best authors, such as Homer, Dante, Shakespeare, and Dickens, not only encourages critical reasoning and sharpens students’ writing abilities, but also develops the moral imagination as students grow in their love for what is good and true. Students begin the study of Latin in third grade, which develops logic and problem solving skills while reinforcing a student’s understanding of grammar and language. Studies have shown that students who study Latin perform better in other subjects and on the SAT, and have higher college GPA’s.* Through the study of mathematics and science, God’s creation and order are clearly illustrated. History is studied chronologically from the dawn of the ages to modern day, which provides the outline for the study of literature, art, music, and science.

At Coram Deo Academy, students are encouraged to grow in “wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man.” Academic excellence rooted in a Biblical worldview, paired with a challenge to grow into a greater reflection of Jesus Christ throughout students’ formative years, not only prepares CDA graduates to succeed in college, but even more importantly, to become men and women who are equipped to impact the world for God’s glory.

Extracurriculars

Coram Deo Academy is committed to the continued development of students outside the home and classroom. The lessons learned around the dinner table, discovered through biblical readings, and taught in the classroom need an extended platform for full development. The challenges and conflicts provided by athletics, arts, and drama programs provides that platform. Our programs are designed to assist in the development of character and integrity in our students. These traits are encouraged and developed in a safe environment with like-minded coaches who support parental authority. Our athletic, arts and drama philosophy is principle driven, development purposed, and effort rewarded. We believe the practice of biblical principles will create the discipline needed to live a successful life for Christ. We believe the combination of academic and athletic programs provides an effective tool in the development of a well-rounded person.
