Policies

How we educate children – at every age and every level – equips them to become lifelong learners, successful professionals and responsible citizens. Because when it comes to your child’s education, “how” matters

All Urban Academy  policies and forms are included as part of the online registration process. If you completed these online forms while registering your child, you do not need to take further action UNLESS you need the Authorization for Medications form, which includes epi-pens and inhalers.

For the convenience of our families, our policies and forms are available below for reference. If you would like to make any changes to the original information you provided, the forms below can be downloaded and emailed to
