Social and Emotional Support

A component of the learning community at the Davidson Academy is based on exploring, discussing and supporting the social and emotional needs of students. Social and emotional development is a school wide philosophy infused in our curriculum, activities, and events. Every member of the Davidson Academy team – counselors, staff, teachers, parents, and students themselves – work together to help our students grow socially, emotionally, and academically. Our staff is knowledgeable and has experience in working with the unique needs of profoundly gifted students. Counselors have the opportunity to get to know students and provide support on an individual basis. Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Regular one-on-one check-ins with students
  • Self-awareness and management
  • Development in areas such as self advocacy, time management, and study skills
  • Mindfulness and stress relief techniques
  • Referrals to external professionals and resources in the local community as needed
  • Elective courses covering relevant topics
