About Lincoln College Prep
Lincoln College Preparatory Academy (Lincoln Prep) is a unique learning community that values and demonstrates respect for the individual and the educational experience at every level. Gifted and dedicated students, a progressive and expert faculty, caring and supportive parents and community partners work together to create a place that continually exemplifies what is possible in public education.
Lincoln is home to challenging and rigorous programs that yield great results. Our standardized test scores have established Lincoln as a premier school on a local, state, and national level. A more profound measure of our success is evident when we reflect upon the intellectual, social and emotional development that cannot be captured on standardized tests. We are nurturing extremely capable, creative, and ethical leaders who are positively changing the world.
Lincoln Prep is both a strong presence in the Kansas City education community and a historical cornerstone for the city. Since the original school's founding in 1865, Lincoln has evolved, the name has changed, but the purpose and mission have remained clear: to help nurture and develop thoughtful, caring, high-achieving graduates.
Lincoln College Prep Academy Earns
Lincoln College Prep Academy earned accreditation from AdvancED. AdvancED is the parent organization of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). This action was taken at the AdvancED Accreditation Commission meeting held in Tempe, Arizona in June 2013.
AdvancED provides nationally-recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet AdvancED’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site school quality reviews of Pre-K through 12 schools and school systems to help educators and their communities ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in accreditation, AdvancED is also committed to help schools improve. Combining the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change, we serve as a trusted partner to over 34,000 schools and school systems—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 71 other nations.
