I love davidson day school

Davidson Day School is a private school located in Davidson, North Carolina.



Davidson Day School, formerly Acclaim Academy, was originally located at 404 Armour Street in Davidson and rented space from the factory that occupied the building. In 2007, Davidson Day School relocated to its current location, 750 Jetton St.


Every year, the Davidson Day theatre department hosts a winter and spring production.


Davidson Day School has moved from 1A to 2A given the growth in student body size. The girls varsity soccer team won the school's first team state championship in 2010-2011. After moving up to 2A for the 2011-2012 campaign, they again won the State Championship besting defending 2A Champions, Caldwell Academy, in overtime. The 2012-2013 campaign netted similar results as the girls soccer team won their third straight NC State Championship.

The varsity basketball team has been ranked in the top 25 in North Carolina and has placed over a dozen players into colleges in its short history. They were State runners up in the 2011-2012 season and placed four graduates from the class of 2012 on Division 1 college basketball teams.

The school fielded a varsity football team for the first time in 2011-2012 and won the NC Private Division III State Championship. The football team competed in the larger Division II in the fall of 2012. It received national attention after Davidson Day junior quarterback Will Grier threw for 837 yards and 10 touchdowns 35 of 42 passes in one game on November 9, 2012, in a 104-80 victory over Harrells Christian Academy.

Influence by Davidson College

Davidson Day is less than a mile from Davidson College, and many of the current teachers are Davidson alumnae. Davidson Day, based on Davidson College, developed an honor code. The Honor code reads:

I will not lie, cheat, steal or plagiarize, nor will I tolerate the dishonorable behavior of others.
