Online High School

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Davidson Academy's online high school!

The Davidson Academy is a proven leader in educating our nation’s brightest students. Since 2006, the Davidson Academy's Reno school has been recognized as the best option for families with profoundly gifted middle and high school students already living in the Reno area and for those who can move to Nevada. For those who cannot move, there is now an online option, which reflects the Davidson Academy’s commitment to the profoundly gifted student population by offering our students a rigorous online academic environment where they can thrive among their intellectual peers.

For the 2017-2018 academic year starting this August, the online high school will provide accredited courses for incoming freshmen and sophomores. For the 2018-2019 academic year, a full array of high school accredited courses for freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors will be offered. 

The 2018-2019 application will be available in October 2017. Applicants must be 12 years old as of Sept. 30, 2018 for the 2018-2019 academic year and commit to being full-time students.

For Nevada residents, both options – attending either the online or Reno school – are free, and there is no application and assessment fee. However, out-of-state students must pay a $100 application and assessment fee and, if accepted, tuition based on a flexible tuition model.  For details, scroll down to the tuition section of the Admissions Process & Tuition page.
