Meet Our Students


Students play an important role in a family's school decision process, so we encourage prospective students to come check out Durham Academy for themselves! Student Shadow Days are offered several times throughout the year to enable prospective students entering grades 5 to 12 to spend a day at DA with a student host. 

Prospective students spend the morning attending classes with their student host. During their visit, students have an opportunity to meet teachers in the grades in which they may be applying, experience the schedule and rotation of classes, and get to know potential classmates. A family does not need to have an application on file for a prospective student to visit our campus. Please note: interested families must register online at least one week in advance in order to attend.
