Welcome to Heads Up, a blogging experiment that aims to:
- connect the people, parts, and principles of Durham Academy;
- share ideas about learning and human development;

How can we keep our promise?
On Tuesday March 25, 2014 at 6:30 in Kenan Auditorium, we screened the documentary film that launched the year for our faculty and stirred good conversations about marriage, parenting, race, education, and the American Dream.
American Promise follows two middle-class African-American boys from home to New York’s prestigious Dalton School and back for thirteen years. Click here to learn more and see the trailer. Or see page 18 of the new Durham Academy Record for more about how our faculty used the film.
American Promise is suitable for all ages – a compelling story and powerful conversation starter.
