Welcome to Urban!
ADMISSIONS UPDATE FOR THE CLASS OF 2020
The Urban Class of 2020 is now fully enrolled. We are no longer accepting names for our wait pool, nor will we keep an active summer wait pool list for the 2016-17 school year. Thank you for your time and interest in Urban.
Dear Rising 8th Graders and Families:
We are delighted that you are considering The Urban School in your high school search. Urban is an exceptional place for students seeking to ignite a passion for learning and to immerse themselves in meaningful engagement within the classroom and the world. For more in-depth information and to stay up-to-date on Urban, please check out the following:

The process of applyting to high schools can seem overwhelming at times, so it's important to take it one step at a time! The summer before your eighth grade year is a great time to reflect and get a broad perspective before diving into all the details you will encounter in the fall.
This summer, we encourage you to begin familiarizing yourself with the websites of various schools in which you are interested and getting a general sense of how the process will work. Our process begins in August 2016. At that time, you will be able to create a Ravenna-Hub account. All application steps, details and components are located on our admissions site, Ravenna, and are submitted through your Ravenna-Hub account. After creating your account, you will be able to explore Urban and schedule events and visits on our campus. Urban admissions event dates will be released mid-August for your planning purposes and can be scheduled on Ravenna at that time. We will host student visits mid-Septmember 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!
To begin learning more about our process and application details for admission to the 2017-18 school year, please return to our admissions website in August and create your Ravenna-Hub account. We hope you have a wonderful summer, and we look forward to guiding you and your family through this exciting process in the fall!
