"The best way to predict the future is to create it."
First Day of School!
The Three Pillars
All children can and will master the fundamental academic skills they need to graduate high school and live productive choice-filled lives. This means every scholar is learning at or above grade level within three years of enrolling in our school, and our graduates are ready to pursue a career in an industry they choose.
Career exploration and planning will be part of every aspect of our curriculum. We want children to envision a productive future after high school in a career or industry that drives and challenges them. The Lincoln Academy will help scholars set academic and professional goals and will offer each scholar academic and career opportunities in school that prepare them to meet those goals immediately after graduation.
We will live up to the example of Abraham Lincoln. Extraordinary men and women rise to every challenge, commit to self and others, and are not deterred by challenge. Industry and ingenuity matched with hard work and dedication to cause are the defining characteristics of successful individuals and communities.
The Lincoln Academy is a K4-12 tuition-free public charter school, committed to serving ALL scholars that apply, including English Learner (EL) scholars and scholars with special needs, reflecting the diversity of Beloit.

Rigorous academics and fundamental skills combined with meaningful career exploration and experience and a school-wide commitment to citizenship and service, creates a unique and forward-looking learning environment. The Lincoln Academy proves what is possible when scholars are given the right combination of school culture, strong academics, a mission-driven staff, and a clear path to college or career and a choice-filled life
