Durham Academy is committed to making our school affordable and accessible to a wide range of Triangle families.
We encourage families to apply for financial aid if they believe they need any level of support. As a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), Durham Academy provides financial aid on the basis of demonstrated family financial need.
