Community Service

Canpaign 2014

Urban Academy students understand that being of service can take many different forms.Toy Drive 2014

They are aware of the world and develop compassion for others and are motivated by the fact that they can impact the lives of others at home and abroad.

Over the last several years, Urban Academy students have been raking leaves, opening lemonade stands, selling their comic books and doing a variety of classroom projects to raise money for our sponsor child in Indonesia.

Urban Academy primary students visit a senior's home to spread the joy that only young children can bring to older folks who could use a few more visitors.

Our students take part in the Terry Fox Run to raise money for cancer research.  They also participate in the Run for Water.  In partnership with Hope International, this program raises money for people in Ethiopia to have clean water.Run for Water 2014

This year our middle school students will organize a food drive to collect food for a local food bank. In the past, intermediate and senior students knit scarves for homeless youth through Covenant House.

The life lessons learned by giving back to the community are an invaluable part of the teaching that happens at Urban Academy for our students at all levels.
