WELCOME TO URBAN ACADEMY
At Urban Academy we believe that education is most effective when students are truly engaged in their studies. There is a vibrancy in our classrooms as students connect learning to real life through the arts, technology, sciences and the great outdoors. The results speak for themselves: high academic achievement and talented, confident students well positioned to become the brightest innovators of tomorrow. We operate on the basis that every role and every student is important and we are fortunate to have a strong and committed community of parents walking alongside us. The future of Urban Academy is bright, and we are excited about what the coming months and years mean for our growing school!
Our Head of School's Welcome Message
At Urban Academy, we believe our students will experience success when they are active participants in their education. This is achieved when students engage in rich and meaningful learning opportunities that challenge their thinking and understanding.
Our classrooms allow students to explore their learning through an interdisciplinary approach with a focus on experiential education throughout the curriculum and grade levels. Urban Academy students have a history of high academic achievement, community engagement and an understanding that hard work and commitment are required to achieve success. They exhibit the attributes required to become the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.
We also have a vibrant community at Urban Academy that believes in equality and respect for all members, regardless of the role one plays. We celebrate our differences as every student and staff member is unique, valued, and cared for. We are fortunate that our dedicated parent community supports us to achieve our goals and vision for the school. Urban Academy is poised for continued growth and development in all facets of our organization. The months and years to come will surely be filled with excitement and possibility for both our students and the school as a whole.
