The 2020-2021 Davidson Academy Online application is open. The Davidson Academy understands we are dealing with unprecedented changes in our regular lives. Many families who had testing planned for March have been faced with cancellations and closures making it difficult or impossible to obtain the testing required for our qualifications criteria. While we are not adjusting our standards for admissions, we have chosen to modify the requirement to submit a qualifying test score by our admissions deadline, which has been extended until April 15. Applicants are encouraged to submit a qualifying score on any test posted on our website. If you would still like to apply and are not able to obtain the appropriate assessment, please upload any testing that you believe demonstrates the applicant is qualified to be invited to assessment. Our admissions team will review all submitted testing and invite qualified applicants to assessment.
With numerous schools across the country shifting all or some aspects of their schooling to an online mode in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, Davidson Academy Online (DAO) is well positioned to offer several strategies for success. Based on research in best practices in online education, Davidson Academy Online recommends designing online courses that are collaborative, flexible, personalized, rigorous, and encourage critical thinking and rich discourse.
