At Durham Academy, we play to win.

But winning isn't just about the numbers on the scoreboard. It's about the life lessons learned over the course of the season. The drive to improve practice after practice. The responsibility student-athletes have to their teammates and coaches. The grace they show to competitors, regardless of a contest's outcome. The creativity and resilience required to balance rigorous academics and high-level athletics.

These lessons can lead to state championships and college athletic scholarships, of course. But they also help prepare all of our student-athletes for life.
