Our faculty is made up of passionate and intelligent minds who share a unique vision for private education.

We believe that a student who develops a love of learning will become a lifelong learner.  Individuals who love to learn ask questions, dive deeper and encourage those around them to follow suit. 

A confident, empathetic and knowledgeable learner who has an appreciation and understanding for the world around them. We are creating change makers, innovators, politicians and leaders.

Our belief is that encouraging a love for life long learning creates youth who are motivated to stand out, excited to develop their skill set and passionate about making real change. Education begins with reading and writing but is enhanced and broadened by real life experiences and awareness of the world around us.

At Urban Village Academy our goal is to deliver the Ontario Education Curriculum while enhancing it’s content through real-life applications and social context.
