Join the Davidson admission team for a workshop series designed to help you kick off the college search and application process. 

Sessions are for high school juniors, with session options for parents and mentors. 

Each workshop has been designed by a team which may consist of Davidson admissions staff, Davidson students, partners from other institutions, and our high school counseling colleagues. Our goal is to provide information in a broad scope that will serve participants regardless of where they apply. We encourage participants with questions specific to a school's admission process to reach out directly to that institution.
