Student Sample Schedule
MANY SCREENS, ONE CLASSROOM
Davidson Academy Online students might live across the country, but they most definitely go to school together. With regular weekly class schedules, students meet on video-conferencing software. Classes have up to three hours of live sessions each week. Through shared video screens, they participate in rich, content-based discourse, work in small groups, collaboratively solve problems, interact with teacher- or student-led discussions, and take notes—and even hang out together before and after class.
First Block for All Students
Live sessions at 8 a.m. PT are open to all students. Students in the western half of the U.S. and Canada join their classmates on the eastern half of the country who can start live sessions as early as 6 a.m. PT.
Davidson students often choose to eat lunch as a group while sharing video screens and join clubs based on shared interests.
Third Block for All Students
Live sessions can fill the day until about 1:30 p.m. PT. When possible this session is reserved for students on the west coast. Many students return to homework for a few hours in the evening.
Offline for Other Activities
Much of Davidson happens online, but the day is also balanced with experiential activities that serve the whole child.

I’m in classes with other students . . . For me, the fact that school is online means that I also have time alone that I really appreciate. I can actually be myself more, and more of the time, than at a brick and mortar school.
