The  Board of Directors for Classical School of Dallas consists of families who live in the area around White Rock Lake in Dallas, are members of different local church bodies, have a passion for Classical education, and have multiple children who have attended public schools, homeschool and co-ops, private schools, and collaborative models similar to CSD. Based on the Board's collective experience, we earnestly believe that CSD offers a differentiated and cost-effective Christian private school alternative for families in our circumstances.
