Durham Academy's 5,000-plus alumni comprise a varied group — spread around the globe and fulfilling DA's mission of enabling each student to live a "moral, happy and productive life."

One is a coffee buyer who travels the world forging relationships with growers and influencing trade policy. Another is a world-class pianist. Several are passing on the gift of a DA education as faculty and staff at their alma mater. Each is leaving an indelible mark on the world.

The Alumni Association serves as your link to the school, keeping you informed and involved with Durham Academy and recognizing your accomplishments. If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions about the Alumni Association or about opportunities for future participation, please let us know. You’re always welcome on campus; please visit anytime!

Attend DA


Attended by DA Grads

"Like many alumni, attending Durham Academy significantly influenced my life and has continued to impact it almost 10 years after graduating. Many people take for granted the significance a local alumni event can have on your future, however it was my decision to attend an alumni event in Charlotte that inevitably led me to my dream job with David Ravin ’89. This strong network allows us to continually be connected to the brilliance our alma matter helped to create and affords us the ability to make impactful and long lasting connections."
