The DA App's online directory is live!

We're excited to share that the Durham Academy App's online directory is live! This means that anytime you need to contact a fellow DA community member, the information you need is in your pocket, just a few clicks away. For frequently asked questions about how to use this new feature, read on!


Welcome to the first issue of News & Notes of the 2015-2016 school year! This issue of our weekly newsletter focuses on how you can stay connected with DA throughout the year via our news platforms, calendars, Veracross, the new DA app and more. As always, reach out to the Communications Office staff with questions and news tips at communications@da.org.


Be in the know about what's 

happening at Durham Academy

Durham Academy's Communications Office wants you to know what's happening at DA, and we share information with our community in three ways: daily through social media posts; weekly via our e-newsletter, News & Notes; and biannually via the Durham Academy magazine.            

Learn about these efforts and how you can stay connected! 


Veracross is your home base

for student information

Want to see you child's schedule at a glance or review progress reports? Need to sign up for an Extended Day program? Looking for college counseling forms? Look no further than your Veracross Parent Portal! Read More


Calendar subscriptions offer

a simple way to stay organized

By using Durham Academy's iCal calendar subscriptions, parents, faculty and students can easily add continually updated event feeds to their calendar client of choice with just a few clicks. You may add as many or as few calendars — ranging from your child's class schedule or assignments, to division-specific activities and athletic team schedules, to Middle and Upper School rotational calendars — as you wish to any calendar client that accepts iCal feeds. Read More


Plug in, listen up for weather

and emergency communication

In the event of a closing or schedule change due to inclement weather or a school emergency, Durham Academy will communicate this information to families in a number of ways. Read More
