Davidson: Explore courses are designed and taught by faculty from the Davidson Academy. All courses adhere to the following core values:
"My son, almost 12, is currently taking two of the Davidson Institute for Talent Development online classes and they're going very well, he's enjoying them very much. They are a lot of work, take a lot of time, that's totally fine for us because he's using these classes as part of his homeschooling, but for a kid in school, it could be a challenge. I guess it depends on the subject, how much the child likes the subject and how heavy their course load is at school. The online format works well, all the software choices are top notch and there's a full time staffer who does tech support. And there's some built in social contact (group work) and purely social time. My son really enjoys the classes and has discovered an interest in history, which is totally new." - Parent
