The information on this page is for students who plan to live in Reno, Nev. to attend the Davidson Academy public day school located on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. For those interested in the Davidson Academy Online High School starting with eighth grade for students living anywhere in the United States, please visit the Online section of our website, including the Online Tuition page.


The Reno Davidson Academy is a public school. For residents of Nevada, there is no tuition associated with attending the Academy.


The cost of courses and textbooks are covered through a combination of public and private funding. University of Nevada, Reno courses that are being used to fulfill Davidson Academy graduation requirements are also covered at no additional costs to Academy students. Some Academy classes, extracurricular activities and clubs may occasionally have a small fee that is the student’s responsibility.

If an Academy student wishes to take a University course outside of their graduation requirements, they will be responsible for the tuition and other expenses associated with the class. They are charged the in-state, per credit tuition rate. A need-based scholarship fund is available through the Academy so that students can apply for assistance for the costs incurred when enrolling in University classes beyond those that apply towards Davidson Academy graduation requirements.
