If you have any questions about Urban or the admissions process, please feel free to contact us.
Admissions decisions will be posted on your Ravenna-Hub account at 4:00pm on Friday, March 11, 2016. Please note that we are no longer accepting incoming freshmen applications. Transfer applications are due February 1, 2016. If you are an interested 7th grader, the first step in our admissions process is to create a Ravenna-Hub account and profile. You will be able to explore Urban and schedule events and visits on our campus beginning mid-August 2016. We will host student visits mid-September through mid-January, as well as Open Houses, optional interviews and parent information sessions starting in October. We hope that you choose to take advantage of these opportunities to come experience Urban next fall!
Again, thank you for giving us the pleasure of getting to know your family. We wish you a wonderful spring!
