We are thrilled to invite you to the first in-person TEDxYouth@DAA event in two years! The event will be taking place on May 22nd at 10:00 am GST in the DAA Auditorium.

Our theme for this year is “Paradigm Shift”! We have a remarkable line-up of speakers - both students and teachers - giving talks on a vast array of topics ranging from over-consumption and issues with the modern education system to struggles with body image.

The talk screenings will be split into two sessions with eight speakers in total, featuring a panel discussion with our talented speakers at the end of each session.

Please feel free to head over to tedxdaa.com for more information and tickets. The TEDxYouth@DAA team and speakers have been working tirelessly to put together this event and hope to see you this Sunday!

In an effort to provide even more opportunities for all of our high-achieving learners, we have partnered with Johns Hopkins University to facilitate the enrollment of interested DAA students in their Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Program. This enrichment program is an opportunity for students to be challenged beyond the classroom and collaborate with other talented learners from around the world. To qualify, students must score in the 98th percentile or higher in Reading and/or Math, on a recent MAP test.
