The Urban Academy Lion: Guardian of the Fraser

School spirit at Urban Academy is about more than cheering on our teams. Our school spirit is the pride that defines us and brings us together in so many fantastic ways.

Our students have a lot of heart. They bring a lot of heat.

And so, it makes sense that our mascot would extend this sense of pride, and encompass values like commitment, community, hard work, teamwork and courage. The Urban Academy Lion is the Guardian of the Fraser, defending the majestic working river that spans many of the communities whose families make up Urban Academy.

We are the UA Lions: HEAR US ROAR!
