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.

The Durham Academy Used Book Sale collection efforts are off to a terrific start! Many of the books that have been collected are particularly appropriate for Middle School readers, so the Used Book Sale committee will once again host a special Mini Used Book Sale and Bake Sale for Middle School students on Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 7:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. on the lower field (or Taylor Hall in the event of rain). In addition to books, lots of snacks will be for sale!
We'll have a wide selection of books available, including popular fiction, classics and non-fiction titles in the science, crafts, history, sports and biography genres. All books and snack items are priced at $1 or $2. All purchases may be charged to students' accounts or paid with cash. Students will have opportunities to shop during the school day, and parents are welcome to come anytime.
Doughnuts and other snacks will be available for purchase, and students will have the option of pre-ordering pizza by the slice.
