July Experience is a rigorous three-week pre-college program for rising high school juniors and seniors.

Join other students from across the United States and around the world and take two courses taught by full-time Davidson faculty, live in residence halls, attend workshops about the college admission process, and participate in Davidson traditions.

This program will provide an opportunity for you to prepare for college academically and socially, expand your worldview, get individualized attention from Davidson faculty, explore the town of Davidson and Charlotte, and experience a taste of the college student life.

July Experience courses carry no secondary school or college credit, allowing students the opportunity to try courses from new academic disciplines, engage critically with a variety of material at the college level and learn holistically from their experience. The experience is in a college-level academic setting, and the critical and analytical skills students will take away is invaluable to their personal and academic growth.
