Create a Tomorrow That Transcends Any Threshold.
Beyond the Threshold not only supports our talented students and teachers but will create a future of far-reaching impact. This campaign is the most ambitious fundraising effort Durham Academy has ever undertaken.
We’re on the threshold of the next phase in our exciting campus plans to create state-of-the-art teaching and learning environments. As we extend the ability of our life-changing teachers to create innovative, integrated learning experiences, we continue to carry out our commitment to the excellence for which Durham Academy is known. Beyond the Threshold delivers on our promise to provide a transformative educational experience, fulfilling a plan that started almost 30 years ago with the creation of our Preschool and Lower School campus.
The Durham Academy recipe really works to create happy, moral and productive lives. We see beyond the current test score or sports season, beyond the end of the school year, beyond graduation. That great beyond is what DA is really all about.

DA gave us an extremely strong foundation in STEM, enabling all of us to pursue careers integrating this knowledge across the fields of medicine, e-commerce, finance and real estate development. We want to pay it forward so that today’s students can similarly develop the ability to think critically and have the confidence to tackle any roadblock they may face.
