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.

Drop Off Box Tops by Oct. 26 for Fall Submission
Posted 10/03/2018 02:00PM

Durham Academy Parents Association collects Box Tops for Education! These are found on many products that are likely already in your homes, such as Kleenex, Ziploc, Nature Valley, Annie's brand foods, and Hefty products. (View a complete listing of Box Tops products.) 

DA Parents Association has set up three collection sites:

  • Preschool/Lower School: Bucket is inside the lobby on top of the glass cases.
  • Middle School: There is a box on the counter in the front office.
  • Upper School: There is a folder on the Parents Association bulletin board in the Learning Commons.

While we collect Box Tops year round, there are two deadlines a year for Parents Association to mail them in. The first deadline is Oct. 26, so start clipping and dropping them off! Please address questions about the program to Kelly Wood at
