An Individualized, Innovative, & Challenging Education


Urban Community School provides primarily low-income children from Cleveland's Near West Side with an individualized, innovative, and challenging education. Founded by the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland, UCS is an ecumenical school in the Catholic tradition.


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.
