The Davidson Academy offers two educational options specifically designed to meet the needs of profoundly gifted students – an online high school for those living anywhere in the U.S. and a day school on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. The full-time online high school further strengthens the Davidson Academy’s commitment to the profoundly gifted population by bringing the Davidson Academy experience to students whose families are unable to relocate to Reno. Both options are centered on a rigorous academic environment where students can thrive among their intellectual peers.
Davidson Academy’s Online High School – An online high school for profoundly gifted students living anywhere in the U.S., the Academy’s 2018-2019 online high school application will open this October. For the 2018-2019 academic year, a full array of accredited high school courses will be offered. Applicants must be 12 years old as of Sept. 30, 2018, submit appropriate grade level score on the ACT or SAT according to the Online High School Qualification Criteria and commit to being full-time students. 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 a personalized tuition rate.

Davidson Academy’s Reno School – A free public day school located on the University of Nevada, Reno campus for profoundly gifted middle and high school students, the Academy’s 2018-2019 Reno school application will open this August. Classes are grouped by ability level, rather than by age-based grades, thereby providing profoundly gifted young people an educational opportunity matched to their abilities, strengths and interests. 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.
