Magnet Schools vs Magnet Programs
Magnet Schools: Public schools offering specialized instruction and programs. Magnet schools draw students from across the school system rather than the traditional school zones defined by the school board. Students wishing to attend a magnet school must complete the magnet application process and meet the required criteria.
 
Magnet Programs: Specialized programs offered within comprehensive schools. Magnet programs operate as a “school within a school” or "school wide." In addition to serving their traditionally zoned students, magnet programs draw students from across the school system. Students wishing to attend a magnet program must complete the Magnet Application process and meet the required criteria.

FAQ About Davidson's Auditions

Students who selected Davidson as their first or second choice will receive an invitation to audition if they they met the following minimum criteria during the application process:
  • performed at or above grade level on the reading and math test
  • maintained a B average in all core subjects last year
Students who met the minimum criteria will receive an email audition invitation. The invitation will be sent to the primary email provided during the application. Davidson will also post a copy of the audition schedule on their website (davidson.rcboe.org). Students will be listed by their application identification number.  After the initial academic screening, acceptance into Davidson is based solely on the audition performance. Due to the large number of applicants, entry into Davidson is extremely competitive. Applicants who do not receive an audition invitation will still be considered for their other magnet school or magnet program choices.
