Part-Time Security Officer

About us

The Lincoln Academy is a new K4-12 charter school in the city of Beloit, Wisconsin.  We will serve 700 scholars when fully enrolled after four years.  We will offer K4 through 3rd grade and 6th through 10th grade this year.  We will add a grade in elementary and high school each year until we grow into K4-12.


The Lincoln Academy has three pillars - Academic Rigor, Character Expectations and Career Pathways.

  • Academic Rigor:  We will ensure all scholars are prepared with foundational skills and will be on grade level within three years of enrolling.  This will be accomplished through specifically designed curriculum, longer instructional day, interventions/enrichment, blended learning opportunities, strong professional development, coaching and a growth mindset expectation.

  • Character Expectations:  A strong emphasis on character development and citizenship will build our school culture.  Civic responsibility, service learning and community outreach will play an important role in developing character in our scholars.  Restorative Practices and the Jubilee framework for character education will guide TLA in a joyous, collaborative and healthy school environment where all scholars thrive.

  • Career Pathways:  Career exploration will begin in K4 and scholars will develop an Individualized Learning Plan by 8th grade to help guide them in their course selections in high school.  Scholars will set career goals and be fully prepared to graduate high school.  They will be able to have choices to enroll in a 2 or 4 year college or technical school, enlist in the armed forces or be employed in a living-wage job.

Vision: The Lincoln Academy will be the premier K4-12 school in the state of WI providing college and career pathways for scholars to lead happy, choice-filled lives.  We are committed to an equitable environment with rigorous instruction, joyous interactions, and strong community partnerships.

Values:

  1. Children First-Every decision we make is in the best interest of the scholars we serve.  We are completely focused on their education and their well-being and we always act accordingly.

  2. Trusting Community-We model and expect transparency, honesty, open communication and respect to collaborate with one another and push each other to always be our best.

  3. Get it Done-We are fiercely determined to do whatever it takes to ensure scholars reach their goals.  Innovation and productivity will drive our quest.

  4. Find the Joy-The work is challenging.  And in the face of those challenges, we choose joy.  We choose positivity.  We choose to find the wins.  We choose to lift each other up.

  5. Community Focus -We work alongside our families and community partners to build alliances that afford our scholars unique learning opportunities.   Shared voices will be honored and help us grow.
