The Davidson Institute’s mission is to recognize, nurture, and support profoundly intelligent young people and to provide opportunities for them to develop their talents to make a positive difference.  The Davidson Institute serves profoundly gifted young people under the age of 18 who share the following characteristics:  an extreme need for constant mental stimulation, an ability to learn and process complex information rapidly, a need to explore subjects in surprising depth, an insatiable curiosity with endless questions and inquiries, a need for precision in thinking and expression, an ability to focus intently on a subject of interest for long periods of time, and an inability to concentrate on a task that is not intellectually challenging, including repetitious ideas or material presented in small pieces.
