URBAN ACT Academy is a non-profit 501(c) 3 charter school serving students and families in the Indianapolis area for the 2022-23 school year. The mission of URBAN ACT Academy is to empower students as leaders and to develop globally competitive scholars and informed citizens. URBAN ACT stands for “Us Reaching, Benefitting, Aiding & Nurturing A Community Together”. URBAN says that we are focusing on core city communities that are often overlooked and underserved. ACT says that we are prepared to highlight the rich assets in our communities while also addressing the tough issues facing our neighbors, not simply through words or ideas but through meaningful action.
URBAN ACT Academy incorporates a place-based academic model to reimagine the student experience and to position our students for success. Through place-based instruction, students are immersed in the local culture, landscape and experiences that are then used to connect the foundational studies of the core content. The place-based learning component of our educational model is a key tool for helping students understand the relevance of their learning in relation to their own diverse identities and personal lives.
