Book A Tour & Meet The Team

Booking a private tour and meeting a member of our Admissions Team is the best way to understand what we have to offer. Urban Academy is more than a school - this is an innovative hub where students learn how to learn.

Fill Out An Online Application

This is where you will fill out our application form and receive a request to call into the office to pay your application fee and send your application for review. We'd then request a copy of your child's most current report card (for students applying to Grade 1 and above) to complete the application package.

Assessment & Interview

For students enrolling in Grades 3-12, they would then attend an assessment morning when they would complete their academic assessments. Based on successful completion of the assessment, applicants would then be invited for an interview with our Head of School on the morning of their visit day. Students applying to JK-Grade 2 move straight from the application to an interview with the Head of School as their assessments will be completed during their class visit: Step 5.

Visit A Real Class

Next, if the candidate is successful, they will attend a school visit. Children applying for JK and K attend a morning only Play & Learn Session, while students applying for Grades 1-12 will be booked for a minimum of a one day visit.

Submit a Reference Form

The last step (for students applying to Grade 1 and above), is submitting a reference form, completed by your child’s current teacher. This will validate our meetings and bring us closer to a decision.
