The DaVinci Program

The DaVinci Program builds the proficiencies and abilities to become meaningful leaders who contribute to the world beyond Princeton Day School. 

Be the captain of your own learning.

The DaVinci Program is a unique and innovative program in the Middle School that offers students a block of time each week to devote to a non-traditional class of their choosing.

In our continuing efforts to nurture the body, mind, and character of our Middle School students, Princeton Day School developed the DaVinci Program. This innovative program endeavors to engage students as the captains of their own learning in a student-driven, grade-free environment. The DaVinci period is a dedicated time for students and faculty to take risks, explore individual passions, develop new interests, and use multiple disciplines to solve problems and create original solutions. Visits from alumni to a variety of these courses allow students to see the real-world applications of the experiences in which they engage.
