Student Life

Enriching Experiences

From the first day you step on campus, you’ll be welcomed, supported, and challenged to push beyond boundaries. 
In the classroom, you’ll acquire foundational knowledge, pursue your interests and curiosities, and collaborate with others on projects with real-world implications.

Beyond the classroom, Davidson Day offers an abundance of enriching experiences for students from early childhood through graduation.

Our dedicated, professional faculty are also coaches, advisors, trip leaders, facilitators, and friends. Teaching means so much more than the delivery of content; you’ll find our faculty and staff believe in you and believe that every Patriot can and will make a difference in our world.
