Davies Admissions Process
Davies is located in Lincoln, Rhode Island, and serves approximately 850 students from across the state of Rhode Island. As a four year comprehensive and career school, we offer both academic and career-focused studies.
How to Apply (for School Year 2025 - 2026)
Picture yourself at Davies. "Future Student Night" Open House is held annually in October. This event allows parents, 8th, and 9th-grade students the opportunity to learn more about our classrooms and career programs, and meet faculty, administration, and current students. Prospective parents and students may tour each of our nine career programs, or focus only on those of most interest. (NO OTHER TOURS WILL BE PROVIDED. You do not need to register to attend the open house.)
Take an entrance exam. Davies requires students to successfully pass entrance exams in reading and math. Exams will be offered at Davies on only four Saturdays in November and December from 8am-11am. You can register for the entrance exams at Future Student Night in the gymnasium after the event via our website until all spaces are full. (All entrance exam dates are full.)
You will be notified of your acceptance to Davies by a formal letter.
Send us your Acceptance Agreement and required documents. After sitting for the entrance exam, and being provisionally accepted to Davies, fill out the Acceptance Agreement included with your acceptance letter.
Applicants must be Rhode Island residents currently in 8th or 9th grade when they sit for the entrance exam. Students who did not sit for the entrance exam will not be considered. Please register for the entrance exam in advance.
Davies is a public school and there is no tuition to attend upon acceptance.
Busing is provided for Barrington, Bristol, Central Falls, Cranston, East Providence, Johnston, Lincoln, North Providence, Pawtucket, Providence, Smithfield, and Warren only. All other residents must provide their own transportation. We apologize for the inconvenience.
