Davidson Summer STARS (Successful, Talented, Ambitious, Remarkable, Scholars) is an opportunity available to 8 to 12 year olds enrolled in the Davidson Young Scholars program.
The goal of Davidson Summer STARS is to provide young profoundly gifted students the opportunity to attend a one-week summer program focused on meeting their academic and social needs. We aim to:
- Offer bright students a challenging and fun summer educational experience.
- Provide Davidson Young Scholars the opportunity to participate in academic sessions taught by instructors from The Davidson Academy.
- Increase interaction among intellectual peers.
- Keep students engaged with learning to prevent underachievement.
Participants have the opportunity to explore academic areas in their morning sessions. Past sessions have included biology, chemistry, math, creative writing and poetry. Afternoons are spent participating in engaging academic activities and field trips.
