There are some important dates with regard to application deadlines that we encourage families to take note of. The admissions application deadlines are as follows. Assessment dates and details will be distributed to applicant families after the application deadline has passed.

Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12

  • Accepting Applications Where Space Available (please check with Admissions prior to applying).


Step 1


We encourage you to learn about us through a hands-on, real-world experience: the same way our students learn at Urban Academy. First, explore the information offered on our website, but then see what Urban Academy is about first-hand. Attending an Admissions Information Session (offered monthly as webinars) is the first step in admissions and answers many questions parents have about Urban Academy including the program, extracurriculars, academics, facility, investment and the admissions process.

General Inquiry

We work hard to make the application process easy and as specific as possible to the information you are seeking. 

Answers to some of the most common questions can be found on our FAQ, but if you have specific questions about spaces available, what your child will experience, or would like to connect with a member of our Admissions Team, we welcome you to submit an inquiry today through the button below. 

Admissions Information Session

Learn about Urban Academy’s approach to education and get a good idea about what becoming part of the community could look like at one of our monthly Admissions Information Sessions.

These live, online webinars are designed for parents and will provide a wealth of information about the school and admissions process.

Step 2


If you feel Urban Academy is the right fit for your child, we welcome you to complete the online application package.

Application process:

  1. Set up a profile through MySchool, our student management system
  2. Complete the application and include the student’s most recent report card (for Grade 1+ applicants) as well as any other supporting documents
  3. Finalize the application by paying the $250 application fee online
Step 3


Depending on your child’s age, the assessments all look a little bit different. JK and K assessments are small group sessions. Grade 1-12 applicants come in for their assessments which are a combination of academic and interpersonal sessions. We pride ourselves in evaluating evenly and fairly, and our assessments help determine if students are prepared for the Urban Academy approach to education, learning philosophies, fulsome programming, and academic rigour. Students who are successful in their assessments then move on to next step of the process.

Step 4

Admissions interview

JK-Grade 12 applicants who are successful in their assessments are invited for the admissions interview. This interview is conducted via Zoom and includes parents, members of the Admissions Committee and students entering Grades 4–12. The admissions interviews allow us to get to know your family and help determine fit within the Urban Academy Program.

At this stage, students applying to Grades 1-12 will also be asked for a reference form from a current teacher; the form will be provided by Urban Academy.

Step 5

Admissions Results

Applicants who have completed the admissions interview will receive an admissions decision via email once the Admissions Committee has met and reviewed all of the information gathered. Kindergarten acceptances will be announced by the winter break, JK decisions by the spring and Grades 1-12 applicants will know their results within two weeks following their admissions interviews. Admissions results could be: accepted, waitlisted or declined.  Successful candidates will receive their enrolment and registration package once they receive a spot at Urban Academy. Waitlisted students will be notified should a space become available.
