Admission & Financial Aid

Choosing a private school during this time can feel overwhelming. With so much uncertainty all around us, we want our children to be thriving both socially and academically. Our Enrollment Management Team remains committed to counseling prospective families and sharing what a Durham Academy education looks like during this new normal. We’re (still) here to help!

For the 2020–2021 school year, our leadership team has worked diligently to create a hybrid learning plan that prioritizes the healthy and safety of our students, families, faculty and staff, fulfills our mission of preparing students for moral, happy, productive lives and upholds our commitment to academic excellence. Explore DA's Cavs Connected page to learn more about the protocols we have put in place to allow for a safe return to in-person learning. Additionally, students who need to or choose to remain at home are able to continue learning without interruption, thanks to a robust online curriculum. 

Please feel free to reach out to our Enrollment Management team at 919-493-5787 or with any questions. We look forward to getting to know your family!

"I wanted to personally thank you for the incredible job DA has done transitioning to virtual learning. I know it wasn’t easily done, but you have certainly made it look easy. At a time when the rest of the world feels chaotic and unpredictable, DA has managed to remain the same stable pillar in the lives of my children that you have always been."

"Words can’t begin to describe the amazement and deep gratitude I feel... for a cohesive, productive remote-learning experience that extends far beyond academics. [Our children] are actively learning and they are sufficiently challenged, but they are not stressed. They are also getting the message that academics are important, but physical health, mental health and positive relationships are critical. These kids feel cared about and loved by their school."
