Admissions Welcomes You!

Dear Students and Parent/Guardians,

We hope you and your family are well. Throughout this fall and early winter, we were so grateful that you chose to spend time getting to know Urban. The curiosity and enthusiasm we saw from you and your family is inspiring.

We are honored to read your application, learn more about you, and hear your stories. We promise to be thoughtful with the information you provided us and to make the best decisions we can. From what we have seen so far, we know your strengths and passions will serve you well into high school and beyond.

We will no longer reach out to you directly, except for any missing application components or necessary information to complete your financial assistance application. Of course, you are always welcome to email ( or call us if you have any questions. Admissions decisions will be posted to your Ravenna-Hub account on Friday, March 15, at 4 pm. We look forward to connecting with you then!

If you are a 7th grade family interested in Urban, please check in with us in the late spring or summer to learn more about our application process.

Again, thank you for giving us the pleasure of getting to know your family, and thank you for sharing part of your journey with us.

Go Blues!
