Durham Academy's Board of Trustees has approved a multi-phased Middle School campus master plan that touches every building on the Academy Road campus. The plan creates new academic and community spaces, reorients the campus for cohesiveness and safety, and supports rather than inhibits the Middle School learning experience. When completed, this plan will transform the Middle School experience with a campus designed purposefully for the intellectual, developmental and physical needs of young adolescents.

Durham Academy opened the 2015-2016 school year with 1,185 students, topping last year's 1,183 opening day enrollment, which was also DA's largest-ever. It was an unprecedented year for admissions: DA has reached a record enrollment, yet enrolled fewer new students, 143, than the 167 new students in 2014-2015.
