Athletics Beyond DA

The lessons learned and memories made through participation in Durham Academy's athletics program stick with our students long after graduation. And for some student-athletes, opportunities to compete continue in college and beyond. 

Durham Academy student-athletes' preparedness to compete beyond high school is enhanced by the quality of competition in our conference — the Triangle Independent Schools Athletic Conference — and our state athletic association, the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association, as well as by the high academic standards that DA students must achieve. Durham Academy students are considered hard workers, well-coached and highly motivated by college coaches.

DA has close to 50 alumni currently playing competitive college athletics at the NCAA Division I, II and III levels. A record 19 members of the Class of 2023 are playing their sport at the collegiate level.

Established in 2013, the Durham Academy Athletic Hall of Fame comprises alumni athletes, coaches, staff members and administrators who were particularly outstanding in a specific sport and helped to advance athletics at DA in their time at the school.

Five classes have been inducted into the Hall of Fame — which now stands at 37 members, representing alumni classes ranging from 1978 to 2016, as well as coaches and supporters spanning the decades. The sixth class of the DA Athletic Hall of Fame will be inducted in December 2024.
