URBAN ACT Academy is a tuition-free, public charter school at Washington Irving School #14, serving 500 students from grades pre-K through 8. URBAN ACT, which stands for Us Reaching, Benefiting, Aiding and Nurturing A Community Together, exists to build up strong communities, ensure our students continue to develop a positive identity deeply rooted in where they come from, and helps them to establish a sense of purpose. We use a place-based educational model to work with our students, families, and neighbors to highlight the rich assets that exist in our communities, and use them as opportunities to leverage learning while helping our students create a sense of place, purpose and a life of advocacy for themselves and others.
