Enriching Education. Fostering Community.

We are rooted in the belief that every student should be challenged, engaged, and supported in a learning environment that places no limits on what they can achieve. We have created an educational space for profoundly gifted learners to flex their intellect, explore their passions, build their sense of self and community, and learn alongside their intellectual peers.

We match each student’s needs to a curriculum driven by ability grouping and flexibility, not a one-size-fits-all lockstep approach to education. An individualized education for each profoundly gifted middle and high school student gives each an opportunity to learn to the full extent of their abilities in a supportive environment with intellectual peers of similar age.

Coming to Davidson Academy Online has turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. I learned early on that it took hard work, organization, and a genuine desire to learn in order to succeed. So I worked on it. I grew to appreciate how much each one of my courses pushed me to be the best I could be.

While there are many benefits to Davidson Academy Online, my favorite part of the program has been meeting new friends that live all across the country. I talk in group chats and host calls to talk with my friends on a daily basis. We all feel very closely connected, as there is a sense of real, genuine community in our school.

The thing that I enjoy the most about being a student at Davidson is the community. We are like a family; I genuinely believe that all of the administration, teachers, counselors, staff and other students care about me. Also, the classes really put the learner in a position where they can move at a rapid pace and build their own knowledge. Rather than just internalizing information, we actively create it.

Though classes are amazing, what I really love about DAO is sitting in a breakout room working with my classmates. I am surrounded by these brilliant, kind, funny, wacky, creative people who can make me laugh so hard that I feel like I am going to cry, but can also help me see a new perspective on the subjects that I had never considered.
