The Davidson Academy offers two educational options specifically designed to meet the needs of profoundly gifted students – an Online High School for students living anywhere in the U.S. and a day school on the University of Nevada, Reno campus for local residents. Classes at the Academy are grouped by ability, not age. Both options are centered on a rigorous academic environment where students can thrive among their intellectual peers.
The Davidson Academy’s Online High School starts with eighth grade courses for profoundly gifted students living anywhere in the U.S. Applicants must be 12 to 16 years old as of Sept. 30 (for the year in which they are applying), submit appropriate IQ, ACT or SAT test scores according to the Online High School Qualification Criteria and commit to being full-time students. Students living outside of Nevada must pay tuition. Please visit the Davidson Academy’s Online High School How to Apply page for details.
The Davidson Academy’s Reno day school is located on the University of Nevada, Reno campus for profoundly gifted middle and high school students who live in the area. To attend the Davidson Academy in Reno, students must be at the middle or high school level across all subject areas and score in the 99.9th percentile on IQ or college entrance tests, such as the ACT or SAT.
