WELCOME TO URBAN ACADEMY

This is a place where diversity thrives and students learn to grow. We do things a little differently – bringing the real world to our students and helping them understand through practical, tangible, hands-on experiences. Different is good. Different is better.

Urban Academy Is Centrally Located

The important things should always be close to home. We thought, “An exceptional academic experience needs an outstanding location!” And that’s where our facility is. Located in New Westminster, the geographic centre of the Lower Mainland, just off of Highway #1 and close to the Tri-Cities, Burnaby and Surrey, UA draws from many surrounding communities and is easily accessible by car and transit.

THE BACKBONE OF OUR ORGANIZATION
