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.

Parents Association Volunteer Fair Rescheduled for Sept. 21
Posted 08/27/2018 01:00PM

Parents Association's Volunteer Fair has been rescheduled for Friday, Sept. 21, due to the threat of Hurricane Florence.

Each parent of a Durham Academy student is a member of the Parents Association, and all parents are invited to learn about the many activities and initiatives of the Parents Council (the governing body of the group) at our Parents Council Volunteer Fair on Friday, Sept. 21, in the Lower School’s Brumley Performing Arts Building.

The fair will take place from 7:30 to 9 a.m., and parents are encouraged to drop in for as long as they wish. Breakfast treats will be provided.

Representatives from each Parents Council committee will be available to talk with parents about what they do. In addition, parents will have an opportunity to sign up to volunteer.

Our community relies on the generosity of volunteers who donate their time and talent to help raise funds to support programs and activities across all divisions of DA. Thank you for your support!

Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Schmidt at with any questions.
