Admission Events

Let’s get to know each other! When choosing a school for your family, a good match is everything. You want a school community in which your family feels at home and your child will thrive. Our Enrollment Management team hosts events throughout the year to help prospective families determine whether or not DA might be a good match for them.

Small Group Tours

We would like to invite you to come explore our campus through a guided, small-group tour. We ask that you please register for a campus tour below.

Information Sessions

We would like to invite you to attend an Information Session to learn more about Durham Academy and hear from the Enrollment Management Team, the Head of School, Division Directors, current parents, and students. Preschool and Lower School sessions are intended for parents/caregivers only and will last approximately one hour. Middle School and Upper School sessions will last about one hour and will include tours following the session; these are appropriate for parents/caregivers and prospective Middle and Upper School students. 

Student Shadow Days

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.
