    Durham Academy’s magazine was first published in 1974. The annual publication features articles written by various members of the DA community, including faculty, staff, administrators, alumni and students.

    It’s been a year of milestones at Durham Academy: the graduation of the biggest senior class in DA history, including the most future college student-athletes ever; the opening of the largest building on all of DA’s campuses, completing a major phase in the plan to reimagine the Middle School campus; the announcement of a new, rigorous, flexible curriculum in the Upper School; and a deepening commitment to both sustainability efforts and diversity, equity and inclusion.

    These are but a few of the examples of how DA is flourishing and evolving to prepare students for moral, happy, productive lives.
