Experience Urban Academy
We approach education a little bit differently. We connect learning inside the classroom to the world around us. Student life at Urban Academy is devoted to ensuring every child is set up for success. We link learning to real life and create meaningful experiences for students, supporting and challenging them to become the creative innovators of tomorrow.
Keeping students’ lives engaging helps them stay inspired and reach their full potential. They tackle real-world challenges and learn through an integrated, hands-on approach.

Learning here extends well beyond regular class time, allowing students to cultivate their skills and providing another outlet for teamwork, discovery and collaboration.

Urban Academy Is Centrally Located
The important things should always be close to home. We thought, “Where would families want a really great school?” And that’s where we set up.
