Education in Urcea is provided in public, private, and home schools, and is divided into K-12 education and higher education. Urcean public education is operated jointly by provincial and local governments alongside the Church, regulated by the Collegium Scientificum, which issues annual guidelines on curriculum and performance standards. In most provinces, children are required to attend school from the age of six or seven (generally, kindergarten or first grade) until they turn 18 (generally bringing them through twelfth grade, the end of high school); some provinces allow students to leave school at 16 or 17. School districts are coterminous with local government boundaries and are overseen directly by the communal assembly, except in larger cities, where municipal school districts are administered by boards of education. Urcea's education system employs a system of classical education.

The Urcean education system also features several forms of non-public schooling. Home schooling is a popular option in rural or mountainous parts of the country, particularly within Ionia and Eastvale. Many private schools exist, although the vast majority of them are focused on providing education to non-Catholic students. The remainder are mostly high-wealth preparatory institutions or special schools established for indigent children which operate in coordination with public school districts. Private schools typically do not adhere to the classical education system, instead basing itself on a system similar to Education in Verona due to their primarily non-Catholic focus.

Urcea has many competitive private and public institutions of higher education. Many of the world's top universities listed by different ranking organizations are in Urcea. There are also local community colleges with generally more open admission policies, shorter academic programs, and free tuition, aimed at graduating individuals towards trade-specific schools, often in collaboration with guilds. Of Urceans 25 and older, 84.6% graduated from high school, 52.6% attended some college, 27.2% earned a bachelor's degree, and 9.6% earned graduate degrees. The basic literacy rate is approximately 99%.
