• History and Overview
    Lincoln Academy opened in 1997 and is a PreK-8 Core Knowledge Charter school located in Arvada, Colorado. We serve more than 800 students in whole-group instruction classrooms. Our mission is to provide a rigorous academic program while implementing the full Core Knowledge Sequence. We also offer a variety of specials for elementary and electives for middle school students, including art, physical education, technology, library, and music. In addition to academics, we aim to educate students in our core values of leadership, acts of service, being prepared, respect, integrity, determination, and excellence.  We use Love and Logic for discipline when necessary.  As a school of choice, we recognize that Lincoln Academy families are involved with and passionate about their children's education. Our parent-run school board provides governance for our school and our Parent-Teacher Organization coordinates a variety of community events.  Families are encouraged to volunteer at least 20 hours of their time each school year, with many families choosing to give more. Frequent interaction between parents and staff forms a close-knit team that provides an outstanding education in a warm, welcoming, and caring environment.
