Our children have been attending Davidson Academy since 2003. The school has exceeded our expectations on so many levels. Not only have they provided a challenging academic enviornment but one that is nuturing, safe and taught to the highest of Christian ideals. They have found a way to teach an entire class yet cater to each child''s individual needs. they are constantly updating their resources to provide cutting edge technology for both the students and the teachers. We cna not say enough about the positive experiences we have had at Davidson Academy. Theyu are truly the leader in the private school sector.
