The Davidson Institute is affiliated with the Davidson Academy, a school with two options for profoundly gifted students: a middle/high school on the University of Nevada, Reno campus and an online campus for those living anywhere in the U.S.
A proven leader in educating our nation’s brightest students, the Davidson Academy is recognized as an exceptional school for profoundly gifted students living in the Reno area. For those who are unable to relocate to Reno, there is now the online option. The online campus reflects the Davidson's commitment to the profoundly gifted population by offering this rigorous online academic environment where students thrive among intellectual peers. We suggest reading the Davidson Academy’s website thoroughly to learn more about our admissions and academics.
The Davidson Academy was created through a Nevada state law (NRS 388C) https://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-388C.html#NRS388CSec010l, which allowed for the creation of a “University School for Profoundly Gifted Pupils"

We wish you the best in creating opportunities for gifted students, wherever you may live!
