    How to Enroll

    • Families who wish to enroll their student in Lincoln Academy rather than their neighborhood school must complete the Choice Enrollment Process.


    • Special Note:  We offer both 1/2 day and full-day kindergarten.

    Step 1: 

    Make sure your Jeffco Connect contact information is up to date for current students.  Contact your child's school if you do not remember your user name or password or have trouble logging in. New families will need to create a new account. A new student in a current family will simply be added to the family account.
