DA Summer

Durham Academy aims to prepare children for a mission-driven life in which they engage in their community as happy, moral and productive citizens throughout the school year. At DA Summer, we work to continue that work throughout the summer — a time when we can also welcome children from all over our community to join in the fun and learning!
