Our Commitment to an Affordable Education 

Urban believes that the best education occurs in a school made up of students, teachers, and families drawn from many different backgrounds and perspectives. We work to build an inclusive and equitable community - one where students and adults are welcomed and supported and where faces, voices, and experiences are reflected and valued. 

Urban is committed to maintaining a strong financial assistance program, which seeks to ensure an Urban education remains accessible to qualified students regardless of their economic circumstances. During 2022-23, $4.8 million in financial aid has been awarded to 29% of our students. Families received an average assistance amount of 69% ($38,174) resulting in an average tuition of $16,587.

We strive to get to know every Urban student and family and as such, every prospective student and family. If you are applying for financial assistance, we want to answer your questions and work with you to ensure we understand your unique family circumstances and questions.
