Getting Started

If you’re like many other families in search of options for your gifted student, you may feel like you have tried everything: Homeschooling, public or private schools, gifted schools, or some combination of these. While these options can be a great fit for some students, the Davidson Academy is the only school designed specifically for profoundly gifted students with classes grouped by ability, not age.

Reno Campus - For middle and high school students

Since 2006, the Davidson Academy’s free, accredited public day school for profoundly gifted students located on the University of Nevada, Reno campus has centered on interpersonal and instructional dynamics creating an atmosphere that is vibrant with intellectual energy and dialogue. As the school has grown, the Academy has evolved to offer an increasing amount of opportunities, while still providing a laser-sharp focus on the individual student. Davidson Academy students have the opportunity to participate in many clubs and extracurricular activities throughout the year, as well as enroll in courses at the University under a dual enrollment agreement.

Online Campus - A stimulating community where students thrive

The Davidson Academy's online campus is a game changer for profoundly gifted students. Open to students performing at the eighth grade level and above who live anywhere in the United States and Canada, this accredited school builds off the one-of-a-kind, exceptional framework put in place by the Davidson Academy Reno campus. The result is a robust online community where students thrive.
