When your child enrolls at Durham Academy, your entire family becomes part of the Durham Academy community — and our network of parents is an integral part of our school. DA offers parents many opportunities to be involved both during school hours and in the evening and on weekends, from reading in the classroom and helping with class activities, to helping organize Parents Association fundraising and community-building events.

Durham Academy Parents Association supports the school's academic, social, fine arts and athletic objectives. Parents Association encourages volunteerism, raises 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.

Parents Council is the governing board of 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.
