Admissions Process

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in possibly enrolling your child in Urban Academy.  After you've explored our online information, we invite you to submit an online inquiry.  Our Admissions Team will connect with you to book a tour of our facility and introduce you to our program.  On the tour, you will receive additional school information, we will learn about what it is you are seeking, and you can find out how we can work with your child to offer them excellence in education, achievement in academics, and position them for lifelong success.

After the initial meeting and tour of the school, you will then decide if you would like to formally apply to the school.  Our online application process makes it easy to submit your child's application, and we ask you to include their most recent report card.  To formalise their application, you must also include the non-refundable $250 application fee payment.  Once the application is complete, an interview with the Head of School will be scheduled for both you and your child.  The purpose behind this meeting is to confirm that Urban Academy is a fit for your family and to get a sense of your child as an individual.  

After your child's interview with the Head of School, we will set up a visit day for your child to visit the school.  Depending on their age, either a one hour visit (students entering JK or K) or full day visit would be planned so that your child can become a little more familiar with the school and some of the students who they may be going to school with the following year.  Our teachers also do some assessments with your child during their visit with us so that we can get a sense of where they are at.  The last step for applicants for Grade 1 and above is a reference form that we ask the child's current teacher to complete and return to us.

So in short, the process is as follows:

  1. School Tour & Admissions Meeting
  2. Online Application and Report Card Submission
  3. Interview with the Head of School (both the applicant and parent together)
  4. School Visit
  5. Reference Form (from current teacher)

We understand that choosing a school for your child is an incredibly important decision, so the application process is set up so that we can all be sure we have the most relevant information and that the school is a good fit for your child and your family. 

We are happy to answer any of your questions during our application process and we look forward to having the opportunity to support you in making an informed decision about your child’s education.
