Davidson Academy has strove to encourage and develop our children spiritually in a Christian environment, which is extremely important to our family. When we moved to TN and researched potential school for our children, we weren't able to find another school that was able to offer all the aspects we were hoping to find: academics, extracurricular activities, and a spiritual foundation.

Davidson Academy is a great academic school that provides a spiritual interest to our children. They also have an interest in making sure our children are successful can grow both academically and spiritually. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else for a private education.

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.

My son has attended Davidson Academy and I have seen the personalized teaching methods maximize his learning capacity. Me and my husband strongly considered several other private schools when moving to Tennessee, but no other place had the friendly atmosphere as Davidson Academy.
