Applicants are required to take an admissions test and to submit grade reports, recommendations and other supporting evidence of their academic and personal strengths. In addition to the above criteria, the school gives consideration to applicants who are: siblings of present students; children of alumni, faculty or staff; and students who will expand under-represented populations in our school.
Durham Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Durham Academy does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its education policies, financial aid programs, athletics or other school-administered programs.
