Model United Nations - This club has provided me with experience in being inquisitive about things I'm unsure about, as well as how to negotiate, and evaluate other people’s views fairly. It's also given me a good view of what the world is like outside of the US.
Davidson Academy is a God-focused school. How does that impact life at DA and what does it mean to you?
DA school life is centered around Christ in every aspect. Although we learn standard subjects, we also learn how to grow in Christ and listen to the teachings of the Bible. Any teacher here is knowledgeable and willing to talk about Christianity and capable of giving advice at any time. This means so much to me.

Try it out, shadow here for a day. The atmosphere and classes will impress you, so then do it.

DA has taught me how to show a Christian attitude. Although there are some things you must learn in school, those things are shown through a Christian light. This leaves us prepared to face leadership challenges we will have throughout our life.
