Community Support
at TLA

K4Kindness Day.jpg

The Lincoln Academy is grateful for the incredible support we receive from individuals, families, and organizations throughout the different corners of our community. Your valuable contributions of time, materials and funds make it possible for scholars to explore and enrich their learning, development and aspirations through field trips, technology, equipment, incentives, participation in school events and extracurricular activities. Your support for these activities and resources - things beyond the basics - enhances learning and outcomes for scholars.

We extend our thanks to everyone who, in their own way, has contributed to supporting scholars in preparing to achieve their dreams and live a choice-filled life.

We are so appreciative of our partnership with Beloit Area Community Health Systems to be able to offer this program to families. THANK YOU to the Seal-A-Smile team and Beloit Area Community Health Systems for all that you do to support scholars in staying healthy and ready to learn!

Quarterly Career Exploration: Arts & Communication, STEAM and Healthcare

This quarter, we focused on careers in Arts & Communication, STEAM and Healthcare. Scholars at all grade levels learned about and explored career pathways in each of these areas. Middle and high school scholars with an interest in each field participated in a career panel highlighting different career pathways within the field. Field trips and a number of hands-on exploratory events rounded out each month's activities.
