Hello everyone,

Since this is the area to discuss anything Davidson Young Scholar-related, I thought I would provide a little background information on the program to those who may be unfamiliar. For the most comprehensive, up-to-date information, please visit the Young Scholars website: http://www.davidsongifted.org/youngscholars/.

Through the free, national Davidson Young Scholars program, students and their families receive support in several areas. Parents collaborate with a skilled team of Family Consultants who provide individualized services based on each family’s unique needs. Consulting services include:

Educational Advocacy and Planning - Help for parents and teachers to find an appropriate educational fit for the Young Scholar.

Talent and Interest Development - Assistance with locating summer programs, local and distance learning options, enrichment opportunities and other educational needs.

Child and Adolescent Development - Access to relevant resources and nationally recognized experts.

Annual Summit - Young Scholars and their parents are invited to attend a special yearly event that hosts a variety of speakers, discussions and special activities.

Informal Regional Gatherings - Parents frequently plan local get-togethers with other Young Scholar families in their area.

Online Community - Access to private Young Scholar parent and student networks through discussion forums, chat rooms, electronic mailing lists and website.

Applications for this flagship program are due the 1st of each month. Apply today!
