Little Linc

A Christian Preschool with 25 Children

The goal of Little Linc Preschool is to love children in the name of Christ and train their hearts and minds so they are prepared to serve the Lord and glorify Him with their lives.

The Little Linc began in the fall of 2014 and seeks to improve the educational outcomes of the children of Lincoln Village, as well as those in surrounding areas. Lincoln Village Ministry has invested years in building up this community and its residents. There are many programs in place to benefit the families and help the children become successful, responsible citizens. The preschool is a complementary program, extending the focus on academic excellence and Biblical teaching with a younger group of children.

Each year, God has brought tremendous growth to this program. Currently, there are two classrooms where three and four-year-old students attend school five days a week.  The newest addition is the after-school program where the fun and learning continues into the late afternoon.

It is a joy and privilege to provide young learners with a safe and Christ-centered environment. Through engaging lessons, songs, play, and Montessori-inspired tray work, the children gain valuable knowledge and experience that will provide a foundation for their future years in school.  Little Linc Preschool works with highly motivated parents and caregivers who desire to be the best advocates they can be for their child!

Lincoln Village Ministry greatly enjoys engaging with families at an earlier point and helping to connect them with the many resources available. Research shows that the benefits of attending a high-quality early education program extend to graduation and into adulthood. The impact of an excellent preschool experience is even more profound when considering children from low-income families.

Lincoln Academy

A Private Christian School Serving 81 Children K-8th Grade

Lincoln Academy is a private school which seeks to provide a high quality, Christ-centered education to K-8 students who are zoned to public Title I schools. We have a devoted faculty, staff, and administration who work to help all students achieve their maximum potential. It is our commitment to provide academic content, character-building opportunities and spiritual guidance in a small, Christian environment.

We believe that:

  • All children are created in the image of God.
  • Academic excellence brings glory and honor to God.
  • The teachers and principal are positive role models for walking with the Lord, showing God’s grace.
  • Children should take part in engaging and challenging conversations about the Lord, through devotion and prayer time.
  • An environment that is loving and nurturing is conducive to growing lifelong learners and pursuers of God.
  • Students should be engaged in a way that will encourage leadership beyond the walls of the school. Lincoln Academy students will be prepared to go into the world and be agents of change and peace for the future.

I like that we learn about God and that we don’t have that many students in our classes. This school helps us to forgive others and be respectful, responsible, and resourceful. I strongly think that I have become a better person since I went to this school. I also love the teachers!!!

We learn about Jesus and we are one big family. We also get an education preparing us for our future.

Lincoln Launch

Assists Lincoln Academy students with high school transition

The Lincoln Launch Program helps Lincoln Academy students transition from 8th grade to high school then high school to life after high school. This is achieved by requiring that all Lincoln Academy 8th graders go through high school training and prep classes during school hours. Our graduates will be assessed throughout their high school career allowing us to systematically analyze the growth and development of the graduate’s spiritual, mental, physical, and academic life. It is our hope that each Lincoln Academy graduate has a mentor to follow them through their high school years.

Comparison

96%

of Lincoln Academy Students graduate high school compared with 79.9% rate in Huntsville City Poverty Subgroup (AL Dept of ED 2016)

God used a Lincoln Launch meeting to provide an amazing opportunity for one of our student’s to receive a full scholarship to Westminster for the next four years.

Learning Lab

After-School Care for 30+ Lincoln Academy Students

The Learning Lab is an after-school program at Lincoln Academy that provides a safe environment for students whose parents work schedules do not permit them to pick up their children immediately after school. The Learning Lab expands the educational opportunities for Lincoln Academy students. Lab participants will be able to magnify their horizon of learning, fuel their creative passions, and inspire one another in an environment that provides support from friends and caring adults. The Learning Lab creates an environment of exploration with access to peer friendships and knowledgeable mentors in order to achieve additional life skills and exposure to the world around us.

The Learning Lab currently serves students from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Tutors and “homework assistants” in math, reading, and English are greatly needed during our homework time. Our ultimate goal is to encourage a spirit of academic excellence and cultural awareness.

Camp LEAD

 7-Week Summer Camp for 28 Lincoln Academy Students

Camp LEAD is a 7-week summer camp program for Lincoln Academy students. Staying involved with our students helps to prevent what is referred to as the summer slide.

 

Camp LEAD | 4-Core Principles

Leadership: Camp LEAD sets high standards for each child to develop positive Christian leadership skills in an environment that is safe, supportive, and loving so that God’s principles may be fully displayed.

Education: Camp LEAD creates an environment where fun and learning go hand in hand. Our goal is to give each child confidence to return to school with greater physical abilities, spiritual enlightenment, emotional support, and intellectual skills so that each child can celebrate their God-given talents.

Action: Camp LEAD encourages our children to take action and be positive change agents in their community in order to advance the glory and knowledge of the kingdom of God.

Development: Camp LEAD encourages each child to develop the eight principles of a healthy lifestyle: exercise, nutrition, time in nature, community service, relationships, recreation, relaxation/stress management, and religious principles. Camp Lead exposes the children to the attributes of well-balanced life.

Activities

New Experiences

Campers experience a range of activities during the summer such as a field trip to the zoo, attending flight/aviation camp for a week, a cave visit, Shakalaka, Botanical Garden, fishing, hiking, dining at a formal restaurant, movies, skiing, tubing, and ZUP boarding, and much more. In addition, each child is given daily swim lessons where many learn to swim for the first time. The campers also spend a week at an overnight camp, which is a huge hit.

Camp helped me grow spiritually starting with orientation week with Mr. Mark’s testimony, worship, and “Dinner with Skeptics.” It is helping me be ready to evangelize to people even if I don’t know a lot.

Bible

100% of campers recited chronological order of events from the New Testament.

Swim

100% if campers were able to swim in the deep end by the end of the summer.

Interns

Reported spiritual and emotional growth from the summer’s discipleship.

Experiences

Campers experienced aviation education, cave tours, water park, aquarium, hiking, formal day, spend the night camp, etc.

Public Schools

Serving Public Schools in the Lincoln Community

The involvement of Lincoln Village Ministry began in the fall of 2014 at Lee and New Century High School and in 2016 in Chapman Middle School. Our goal is to continue to reach Lincoln Academy students once they are in public school and to develop new relationships with those who are in need.

We have been welcomed warmly by the administration and staff. Some services include meeting with students individually to offer counseling and encouragement, being a leader during weekly small group mentoring time, eating lunch with students daily in order to develop relationships with them, holding a monthly large group gathering after school hours for fun, food and sharing by an inspirational speaker, serving as MC for pep rallies, attending ball games, coordinating food for teacher work days, and recruiting tutors for students. A food and clothing pantry has been established to serve both schools. Food is graciously provided by the Food Bank of North Alabama and clothing is provided by generous individual donors.
