An Annual Celebration

A significant fundraising event that helps us equip students with the necessary opportunities and materials required for an exceptional education is our Annual Urban Academy Gala. The parent-run Gala Committee plans an exciting evening event in May that truly is helping us to build our dream. Over 250 parents and community members join us for dinner, entertainment, live and silent auctions and the always anticipated student art showcase.

Our 2021 Gala will be held virtually on Saturday, May 15, 2021, and will be a wonderful opportunity to integrate student work and talent into the event.
