About Us

Urban Discovery Academy is a free-public charter school serving TK through 8th grade students in the heart of the IDEA District, in the East Village neighborhood of Downtown San Diego. UDA opened in 2008 and is now a part of Urban Discovery Schools, including IDEATE High Academy, who opened its doors in 2016 as the first design-thinking focused high school in San Diego. The UDA schools serve to develop community-minded students who are active, creative, confident, and ready to lead our global society.
