Future Families

    Urban Academy is an academically-enriched and engaging private school. Our students are guided by caring, dedicated teachers to strive for academic excellence, compassion towards others, and to develop their innate capacities for creative problem-solving. We are a destination school with students from New Westminster, Burnaby, Vancouver, Coquitlam, Surrey, Richmond, Maple Ridge as well as other local and international cities.

    We expect high standards from our students. Our class sizes are small allowing us to personalize our learning environments and pay attention to the motivation of every student. We work collaboratively with parents so that students receive a consistent message about the importance of a high quality education. Our students are powerful thinkers, communicators, and engaged risk-takers. 

    Engaging and motivating our students is one of our main points of focus. Our approach to learning that links core subjects to technology, the arts and outdoor education helps each learner to make a deeper connection to subjects like language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. We also support inquiry by allowing students to ask questions that they are interested in, and discover the answers during their inquiry units. We believe that learning should be engaging, relevant and thought-provoking.
