The Durham Academy Fund

Annual support of the Durham Academy Fund is the foundation upon which we build.

The Durham Academy Fund takes the DA experience beyond what is funded by tuition and allows the school to focus on the future, every day. Beyond the Threshold includes a $8.75 million DA Fund goal that will continue to power the people and programs that bring our new spaces to life.

To propel our students and teachers into tomorrow, it takes a generous community of parents, alumni, faculty and leadership who understand the power of paying it forward. 

We are asking our community to increase their support of the Durham Academy Fund during the Beyond the Threshold campaign. Show your commitment to our mission and to the lives of all who are part of the DA story.

"We contribute to Durham Academy due to the school’s steadfast commitment to establishing an enriching and captivating educational environment that cultivates genuine enthusiasm for knowledge among children. With dedicated faculty and staff who possess a profound passion for education, Durham Academy goes above and beyond to foster deep connections and meaningful relationships among students and parents."
