The Young Scholars program is proud to serve gifted students and their families. We have seen the positive difference it makes when our nation's brightest youth are recognized and nurtured.
"Being a parent of a profoundly gifted child can be very isolating. Our entire perspective of 'normal' is out of whack. We spent the first few years of our son’s school experience wondering why the other gifted parents were not joining us in pursuing ever increasing challenges for their children as well. We did not understand how they could be happy with just a few small changes, when the entire curriculum was not a good fit for our child.
After realizing that our child was more than just 'gifted', we realized how alone we were. Having Alex accepted as a Davidson Young Scholar (YS) was one of the most validating events of his young life. He learned that he was not alone, and neither were we, his parents, in raising him."
