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.

Everyone remembers their favorite teacher. Tuesday, March 5, is your chance to thank them. Durham Academy is hosting Giving Day, a 24-hour fundraising event driven by the entire DA community. We hope you’ll join parents, faculty, staff, alumni, parents of alumni and grandparents in giving back and supporting DA at www.da.org/givingday.
Giving Day is a way for anyone to support the Durham Academy Fund at any level. This year’s goal is 1,000 gifts to the DA Fund. The DA Fund supports teacher salaries and benefits, student/faculty technology, financial aid, the arts, athletics, special events and guests.
A gift of any amount counts toward the goal. Success is about participation — 1,000 gifts of any size unlocks a $20,000 challenge gift. Those dollars go toward supporting our outstanding teachers. You can keep up with the campaign and see additional challenges offered throughout the day at www.da.org/givingday.
So on March 5, we’re asking you to do three things:
- Visit www.da.org/givingday and make a gift of any size.
- Tell a friend to do the same.
- Spread the word. Visit DA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (alums, you can visit DA Alumni on Facebook and Twitter) and like, comment and share while you’re there!
- Do you need Giving Day logos or social post/text templates to help spread the word? You can find them here!
Your support will make a difference in the lives of every teacher, every student, every day. Make a gift and make a difference!
