Davidson Academy Student Life

Students at the Davidson Academy have the opportunity to participate in many activities throughout the school year. From the Fall Festival and Winter Dance to Pi Day and Spirit Week, there is always something fun happening!

“At the Academy, there is a place for every student, young or old, no matter their interests. We have students creating musical languages, working with lasers and debating like pros. Whatever your interest, no matter how esoteric, you are sure to find someone who can relate. Even if you aren’t sure what your passion is, there is still a place for you to discover it.” ~Davidson Academy Student

An online magazine produced by Academy students, Davidson Digital Winter 2017 contains information about the Reno/Tahoe area, arts, summer camps, school activities and more.

Other Activities

“The community at the Davidson Academy is truly incomparable, and I definitely wish I would have known before I started just how welcoming everyone would be. I made lots of friends easily, and I was happy to find that everyone was very accepting and friendly. You may think that we’re all 'nerds' here; while it’s certainly true that we value academics, there is so much more to us than that! Outside of academics, many students pursue a variety of extracurricular activities, from sports teams to orchestras to speech and debate.” ~Daivdson Academy Student
