Re-Build Cambridge

The Cambridge School of Dallas was damaged in the EF-3 tornado that hit North Dallas on October 20, 2019. Amidst the stories of schools and homes being damaged, there was one missing, The Cambridge School of Dallas. We are a small Christian, classical, college preparatory school serving grades 5 through 12, that rents space from Northway Church – the church with the iconic damaged sanctuary images that have now even caught the attention of Times.

The front of The Cambridge School of Dallas may look fine from the outside, but we cannot hold classes without power, water, heat, gas, or other facilities. Cambridge’s athletic facilities and equipment have been decimated. Two of our vehicles were smashed together and the third is running but in desperate need of retiring. The Sanctuary, where the school comes together at least three times a week, is a hollow shell of a room. Cambridge’s drama closet and storage areas are littered with soaked ceiling tiles, insulation and ductwork.

The mission of The Cambridge School of Dallas is clear: Academic Discipleship: Fostering a Love of Learning with a Passion for Jesus Christ – a mission that is evident in each classroom, sports team and social event. The Cambridge School of Dallas is ranked by Niche in the top 3 Best Christian High Schools in Dallas-Fort Worth. The school has had more than 20% of Cambridge graduates attend the most highly selective colleges and universities. Cambridge is worth the investment.

The school began as Logos Academy in 1996 and experienced a season of rapid change which lead to 2001, when we became The Cambridge School of Dallas. For almost 19 years, Cambridge has fulfilled our desire to transform the lives of students so that they will engage life using their God-given gifts and abilities to meet the world’s deepest needs, all without a permanent home of our own. The time is now where that needs to change.

“Cambridge needs a home. Dallas needs Cambridge. The world needs Cambridge students,” said David Waldrep, Board member for The Cambridge School of Dallas.

Cambridge needs help. Cambridge needs to re-build.

Whether it is fixing and staying for the time being, or if it is going ahead and building on the land Cambridge has already purchased at Royal Lane and Webb Chapel Road and staying somewhere in the interim, Cambridge must and will re-build. And we can only do that with your help. Will you help build Cambridge on a solid rock for generations to come?

We want to provide an update! We have relocated to an interim location for the school year. We are still actively trying to meet the needs of our school after losing so much from the tornado, and still need help, but we are moving forward and will continue to do so. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
