Our students are on a path toward college and career. We have high expectations for our students and offer a high level of support to help children reach their full potential. We individualize learning based on regular analysis of student progress throughout each school year, and our students are successful. Our priority is focusing on the young child, and we work to build a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy. We offer full day Kindergarten with an early entrance option for students who turn five years old before January 1. Student activities are designed to meet the unique learning needs of each student. Lincoln Park Academy is accredited by Cognia™ for meeting the highest standards of education in ongoing third-party review.
At Lincoln Park Academy, we provide a standards-based curriculum that teaches students skills for college and career readiness. Our curriculum is built on the Ohio Learning Standards (OLS) for English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Visual Arts, and Physical Education. Lincoln Park Academy students are instructed in six subject areas:
English Language Arts
We help students develop vital communication skills, while inspiring a love of literature. Younger children learn phonics and grammar and prepare for reading through multi-sensory activities, while older students learn to comprehend and analyze both fiction and non-fiction. The program emphasizes classic works and writing as a process.
We balance fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem solving. Our active approach ensures that students understand the realities that underlie mathematical concepts. Games and animations bring concepts to life, while challenge problems, regular practice, and review ensure mastery. We build from the concrete to the abstract as students move from basic skills toward algebra.
Our Science program uses hands-on experiments to support the systematic study of life, Earth, and the physical sciences. We nurture curiosity as students practice observation and analytical skills. Students learn how our understanding of the world is shaped by ongoing scientific and technological advances.
Organized physical education gets children exercising regularly. We teach students important concepts of teamwork and sportsmanship, as well as promoting general health and well-being.
Fine Arts: Winning in America
Our Fine Arts Program, Winning in America: Dance Afrika Dance, offers students the opportunity to explore different areas of art including dance (hip-hop, jazz, African, and ballet), visual arts (drawing, painting, and clay modeling), theater drama (featuring 2 productions per year), and vocal music. Children can develop interests at an early age that can be used throughout their lives and careers.
Our school is built on a strong foundation of high expectations for academic achievement for all students. Our instructional model has four key components to achieve strong academic results:
Students participate in a variety of learning activities each day that individualize instruction for each subject area. Students receive whole class instruction, small group instruction, and individual instruction with teachers, technology and other curricular tools.
Properly Certified & Licensed Teachers
Our teachers meet the educator qualification requirements outlined in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA): Bachelor’s degree, grade-level teaching license/certificate & ability to demonstrate subject area expertise. Our teachers are supported by trainers and participate in continuous, research-based professional development. Our teachers are accountable for student learning and rewarded for high quality performance.
More Time on Task
Our students receive double the instruction in ELA and Math to provide a strong foundation for all learning. Beginning with full-day Kindergarten, our school also follows a longer school day and school year than many other schools.
Short Cycle Assessments
Student knowledge of academic standards is assessed formally and informally in short cycles by each teacher. Our teachers adjust class-level and individual instruction based on student performance in these frequent intervals.
