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.

When: March 28
- Lower School parent session: 9 - 10:30 a.m.
- Middle School parent session: 1 - 2:30 p.m.
Where: Middle School Board Room
The session will be led by Cannon Architects. This is an opportunity to provide input on potential design characteristics for the comprehensive Middle School renovation. Parents may attend either session.
Parents will learn about the current Middle School campus configuration and some of the developmental, curricular and topographic decisions that influenced the Middle School's current layout, followed by an input session on what future design characteristics might be ideal. Parents will also learn about the timeline for Middle School master planning and the different constituent groups involved in the decision-making process.
The Middle School Master Planning Charrette is the result of several key decisions about Durham Academy's future tied to the 2015 Strategic Plan.
