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 invite you to explore our campus through a guided, small-group tour. View dates for each division's tours below; when you find a date that works with your schedule, please register so that we'll know to expect you!

Information Sessions

Information Sessions offer opportunities to learn more about DA via presentations from division directors, our head of school, and the Enrollment Management team. Preschool/Lower School Information Sessions include an opportunity to ask questions of current parents, and Middle School and Upper School Information Sessions feature current students. Middle School and Upper School events also include campus tours.

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.
