Meet our Alumni

The mission of the Davidson Institute is to recognize, nurture and support profoundly intelligent young people and to provide opportunities for them to develop their talents to make a positive difference. The Davidson Alumni Program offers a variety of avenues in which Young Scholars (18 and older), Davidson Academy graduates, Davidson Fellows, and THINK Summer Institute alums, and their families, can stay connected and give back to the Davidson community. We hope to foster lifelong relationships among alumni, parents and students. See detailed newsletter updates of Davidson alumni (must register for Davidson Member Community).


Davidson alumni have gone on to attend a collection of universities, Ph.D. programs, and other post-secondary environments as diverse as the alums themselves. Below is a selection of schools attended by Davidson Institute alums. See also a list of schools where Davidson Academy students have been accepted to and attended.


Davidson alumni have gone on to work in a huge variety of career fields, including tech, medical, academia, humanities, and more! Below is a sampling of Davidson alumni career fields.
