“College and Career Readiness is a state of mind.  Students at Davidson prioritize everything they do around this concept.  Just as they rehearse for our various performances, they also rehearse for life. Through the exploration of new concepts, Davidson students experience academic success that provides a crucial foundation for college and career success. Hands on learning puts them in the middle of real world scenarios that simulate life after high school. Our students buy into and appreciate the opportunities given to them through rigorous course work and genuine learning.”
