Davidson Academy – Announces New Online High School
The Davidson Academy is pleased to announce the launch of a new full-time online high school option opening for the 2017-2018 academic year! Consequently, the Davidson Academy will now offer two educational options for students – the online high school for those living anywhere in the U.S. and the day school on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. The Academy is a proven leader in educating our nation’s brightest students. Since 2006, the Davidson Academy has been recognized as an exceptional school for profoundly gifted middle and high school students already living in the Reno area and those who can move to Nevada. For those who cannot move, now there will be a full-time online high school option. This new online option reflects the Davidson Academy’s commitment to the profoundly gifted student population by offering a rigorous online academic environment where these students can thrive among their intellectual peers.

Davidson Academy’s Online High School – The application for the new online high school is now available. For the 2017-2018 academic year, the online high school will include courses for incoming freshmen and sophomores. Courses for juniors and seniors will be added in subsequent years. The Davidson Academy curriculum is two to three years accelerated and all courses are accredited. Applicants must be 12 to 15 years old as of Sept. 30, 2017, submit ACT or SAT scores for incoming 9th and 10th graders according to the Online High School Qualification Criteria and commit to being full-time students. This age requirement will be expanded upward as more advanced high school courses are added in future years. 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. If accepted, out-of-state students must also pay tuition, knowing financial assistance will be offered. The application deadline is March 1, 2017 and, if space remains available, late applications will be considered until April 15, 2017. Please visit the Online High School’s How to Apply page.

Parents collaborate with a team of knowledgeable Family Consultants who provide individualized services based on each family’s unique needs, including educational advocacy and planning, social and emotional development, and identifying enrichment opportunities. Once enrolled, families choose their level of involvement in program services, in addition to exclusive opportunities such as online courses and a summer camp for 8 to 12 year olds.
