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.
