Update: The
Davidson Academy has launched a new full-time online high school option opening for the 2017-2018 academic year! There are now 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 and has been recognized as an exceptional school for profoundly gifted middle and high school students who can move to Nevada since 2006. For those who cannot move, the new full-time online high school 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.
