Applying to Davidson Day on Your Schedule
We enroll students from two years old through 12th Grade. 

How do we evaluate your child’s fit for Davidson Day? We'll move at your preferred pace and on your schedule. 

The admission process at Davidson Day ensures that our secure, supportive community is the best fit for your family and allows families to receive the individual support and guidance to know that becoming a Patriot is the right next step.

Our process is designed to evaluate each student’s ability to excel academically, think creatively, work collaboratively, and display strong character in becoming a model Patriot ready to lead in the classroom, in our community, in college, and beyond.

We ask for a campus visit, transcript, teacher recommendation(s), and an entrance assessment, in order to ensure we’ll be the best fit for your student and family. Once an application is complete, all materials are reviewed by our Admission Committee, and then an enrollment contract is issued.
