From The Davidson Academy

The Davidson Academy is a game changer for profoundly gifted students. The Academy’s classes group students by ability rather than age, offering a middle and high school level curriculum that is matched to their abilities, strengths and interests. Our unique approach to learning has attracted families from across the country and globe.

The Academy offers two educational options specifically designed to meet the needs of the highly gifted – an online campus for those living anywhere in the U.S. and Canada and a school on the University of Nevada, Reno campus for local residents. Both options are centered on a dynamic academic environment where students thrive among their intellectual peers.

The Davidson Academy is the only middle and high school of its kind for students who score in the 99.9th percentile on IQ and achievement tests. The Reno campus and online campus have separate applications with different deadlines. Please check our website for details.

Personalized Learning at the Davidson Academy

Students along with their parent(s), an Academy guidance counselor and the curriculum team create a Personalized Learning Plan (PLP). The purpose of the PLP is to deepen and strengthen the learning experience for all Davidson Academy students. These PLPs are consistent with the Davidson Academy philosophy of treating students as individuals who are invested in their own learning.
