Welcome to Urban!
NOTE: Application File Processing
Our Admissions staff is working as quickly as possible to process all application documents and are receiving a high volume of calls and emails inquiring about application completion. Materials submitted digitally through Ravenna will be processed more quickly than paper documents. If we are missing any components of your application, we will contact you shortly after the deadline. We will not be able to respond to inquiries asking if your application is complete. We appreciate your patience!
Please note that at this time all event scheduling is closed and we are no longer accepting incoming freshmen applications.

We hope that you are enjoying your last few months of middle school. If you are still interested in experiencing our community, we invite you to join us at any of our athletic events, musical concerts or drama performances. If you are a 7th grade family, while admissions events are strictly only open to 8th graders, you are welcome to attend the above community events as well. 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 17, 2017. Again, thank you for giving us the pleasure of getting to know you and your family. We wish you a wonderful spring!
