About this school

Urban Promise Academy - developing scholars, artists, and warriors - was started by teachers, parents, and community organizations. Its original design focused on safety and inclusion as the first step to establishing a culture of learning. This led to relevant curriculum with arts integrated in-depth projects. Parent and community involvement in academics is an integral part of what we stand for. Urban Promise Academy is an Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound school, which means we employ active pedagogy and use learning expeditions to provide the framework for all students to excel. Our strong after school program includes enrichment classes from dance to web design as well as academic support and homework center. Urban Promise Academy currently serves over 300 students in grades six through eight. We provide students with leadership opportunities and prepare them for college track courses in high school.
