An Individualized, Innovative, & Challenging Education


Urban Community School strives to break social and economic barriers to success for Cleveland's near west side children by providing an individualized, innovative, and challenging education. Rooted in the Ursuline Sisters’ tradition of faith, character, and educational excellence, UCS engages our faculty, families, and community partners in the successful whole child development of our students.


Our History

The Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland started Urban Community School in 1968 and wanted their school to be diverse, to reflect the neighborhood, to be affordable for families living in economic distress, and to give students individualized instruction.


Our Students

Urban focuses on not only educating children, but serving the whole child and their many needs academically, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually.
