Junior High Curriculum

Lincoln’s Junior High also follows the Core Knowledge Curriculum and integrates the Utah Core Standards. The Language Arts department continues to use the Write Source and Six Traits of writing as well as shared reading principles the elementary implements.

Lincoln Academy uses Saxon Math as its mathematics program. Saxon teaches all the fundamental facts and thinking skills with plenty of review and cross-curricular application. We create mathematical fluency by building basic skills, developing math concepts, and encouraging problem-solving fluency. These goals are accomplished by using Saxon Math, which uses proven methods to produce serious results, including higher test scores.

Lincoln strives to offer a wide variety of classes beyond the required core of English, Math, Science, Social Studies and PE/Health. Students can choose from Math Lab, Broadcast Journalism, Drama, Creative Writing, Lifetime Activities, Yearbook, Student Council, Foods, Intro to Family and Consumer Sciences, Clothing, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Spanish I, II, II, German I, II, American Sign Language I, II, Computer Tech, Learning Strategies, Guitar, Choir and Band. All classes follow the recommended standards from the state of Utah

Lincoln Academy meets or exceeds all state standards for Kindergarten through Ninth Grade. Our curriculum is well-rounded, also including sciences, social studies, world and American history, arts, music, health, physical education, character education, foreign language and emotional intelligence. Students who need to be more challenged or need additional assistance are given the opportunity to learn at their individual ability level. The opportunities afforded at Lincoln Academy will inspire each student to develop their gifts and realize their potential. Ultimately this process will encourage confidence in students and create self -motivated learners.
