• History and Overview
    Lincoln Academy began in 1997 and is a K-8 Core Knowledge Charter School located in Arvada, Colorado. We instruct more than 600 students in whole-group instruction classrooms. Our mission is to provide rigorous academics using the full Core Knowledge Sequence and curriculum to support it. Our specials program integrates the Core Knowledge curriculum from the grade-level classroom. We also offer a variety of specials for elementary and electives for middle school, including art, physical education, technology, library, and music. In addition to academics, we aim to educate students in our Core Values of respect, honesty, integrity, excellence, perseverance, and team work. We do not allow students to disrupt the education of others, and we use Love and Logic for discipline when necessary. Lincoln Academy is a choice enrollment school. We recognize that Lincoln families are involved with and passionate about their children's education. We have a Parent-Teacher Organization and parent-run school board providing governance to the school. 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 caring environment.
