Philosophy 

Urban Discovery Academy aims to provide students with a high-quality, education that is tailored to individual needs and inspires student inquiry. Using a project-based method of learning, students become critical thinkers and problem-solvers able to thrive in the 21st century. Children have the right to be educated in a safe nurturing environment, in which they are respected as unique individuals, and are challenged to reach their full-potential. Through a triad of support, parents, teachers and students establish a community of learners that encourages exploration and growth.
