Parents Association & Parents Council

The Durham Academy Parents Association supports the school's academic, social, fine arts and athletic objectives. Parents Association encourages volunteerism, raises and disperses funds, promotes communication and cooperation, and provides input to the school on issues of concern and interest to parents. All Durham Academy parents are members of the Parents Association.

The Durham Academy Parents Council is the governing board of the Parents Association. This group comprises members of an executive committee; division representatives; members of schoolwide committees on matters such as diversity, wellness and athletics; and parents who organize both community-building and fundraising events. See a list of the parents who serve on Parents Council.

We're delighted to introduce a brand-new Dine for DA offering this spring thanks to a partnership with Durham Catering! Through Durham Catering's Kitchen Table Dinners service, your family can enjoy scratch-made, locally sourced meals from the comfort of your own home. The meals are provided to you (either picked up or delivered for an extra fee) fully cooked; you just place in your fridge or freezer, and then heat and eat at your convenience. And best of all, 20% of the purchase price of orders placed in the month of May will come back to Durham Academy!
