Urban Academy Athletics Teams

Urban Academy teams grow with the school. Teams compete against other ISABC (Independent School Association of BC) and GVISAA (Greater Vancouver Independent Schools Athletics Association) schools throughout the Lower Mainland, learning about collaboration, physical health, game strategy and constructive competition.

Our teams and clubs currently include:


Urban Academy Clubs

With parent and teacher support, we are also happy to offer clubs before, during and after school hours for students in Kindergarten to Grade 12. Clubs teach our students about commitment and involvement, helping them build relationships and interest. They also offer the opportunity for students to discover new passions and hobbies. Clubs change each term based on student and parent/teacher involvement, including a range of clubs such as Chess Club, Musical Theatre, Athletic Clubs, Math Club, Robotics Club, Glee Club and STEM Club. Many student groups such as VISTA one act play team, Leadership Groups and Speech Club work with and compete against other ISABC schools allowing UA students to learn from and get to know their peers throughout the province.
