For the 2020/2021 school year, our early application deadlines have passed. However, we are still receiving applications where we still have space in certain intermediate and senior grades. Please contact the Admissions Department at admissions@urbanacademy.ca to inquire about spaces and to register for an Upcoming Admissions Information Webinar if you would like to learn more about Urban Academy.

Applications open on September 1st for the 2021/2022 school year. Kindergarten deadlines are November 15th 2020, Grade 1-12 early application deadlines are January 31st 2021 and JK deadlines are February 15th 2021.


We encourage you to learn about us the same way we help our students learn - through a hands-on, real-world experience.
