Urban Academy was established in 2012. The need for a caring educational facility was identified along with the need to provide education in an urban environment.


A partnership with churches and the community resulted in an educational model where everyone could be accommodated. What started as a school with seven members of staff, is now a thriving community of over 900 learners. Our continued growth has allowed us to expand to 2 campuses with a dedicated campus for Grade R - Grade 1.


Far away from suburbia, in the heart of Port Elizabeth, Urban Academy has become a beacon of hope for learners of various backgrounds.

We are proud of the culmination of cultures that make up the student body of PE's finest city school.
