|Durham Academy is a partnership of parents, students and faculty, with each group being essential to the life of the school. |
DA offers parents many opportunities to be involved both during school hours and in the evening and on weekends. These opportunities include reading in the classroom, helping with class parties, bringing "hot lunch" for an advisory group, volunteering in the library, driving on field trips and to community service projects and more.
Beyond the classroom, Durham Academy parents are automatically members of Parents Association and are encouraged to be actively involved in our entire school community. A variety of Parents Association programs like the All-School Picnic and Turkey Trot 5K aim to develop and sustain our sense of community. Our fundraisers such as the Benefit Auction and Used Book Sale provide resources to support the educational and wellness programs that enrich our students' lives in and out of the classroom. Lastly, our activities encourage and promote volunteerism within and beyond our school community. The partnership of parents, faculty and students is a hallmark of Durham Academy's success in the preparation of "well-educated, well-rounded and responsible citizens."
