Mission: The mission of Urban Discovery Academy is to provide a rigorous education that develops the whole child as a scholar, athlete, artist and democratic member of society.
Vision: The vision of Urban Discovery Academy is to help create a downtown village that is not only physically beautiful but also a beautiful place to raise and educate children. UDA will be a school community that is interconnected with the community at large, with the support of civic leaders, businesses and resident organizations who believe our charter will enhance and enrich our vibrant downtown. A central goal of Urban Discovery Academy is to build a vibrant learning community, where students are actively engaged in their community, both as learners and contributors. In this community model, students will be expected to help each other excel, both within each classroom and across grade levels. Students and teachers will also be expected to engage with community partners, extending learning beyond the classroom walls.
