Welcome to Great Hearts Lincoln Prep, Serving Grades 6-12

Dear Prospective Students, Families, and the East Valley Community, 

Welcome to Lincoln Preparatory Academy, a distinguished member of the Great Hearts Academies network, proudly situated in the dynamic East Valley, serving the communities of Chandler and Gilbert, Arizona. As a tuition-free, public charter school, we are committed to providing an exceptional college preparatory education, founded on an honors-level liberal arts curriculum in the tradition of the finest private schools. Our academy stands as a testament to the transformative power of education, nurturing students’ innate potential and guiding them towards a life of intellectual and moral excellence. 

At Lincoln Prep, we believe in the enduring value of a classical education. Our curriculum is a rich tapestry of the liberal arts and sciences, designed to challenge and inspire our middle and high school students. By engaging with the great works and ideas of Western Civilization, our students develop not only a deep understanding of the world but also the virtues necessary for a profound and philosophical life. Our Latin motto, Verum, Pulchrum, Bonum – Truth, Goodness, and Beauty – encapsulates the essence of our educational philosophy.

Our middle school program lays a strong foundation for classical learning, where students begin to explore the fascinating realms of literature, mathematics, science, history, and languages. This stage of education is crucial in shaping the intellectual and character development of our students. Our curriculum is carefully designed to cultivate critical thinking, articulate expression, and a love for learning, preparing them for the more rigorous studies of high school. 

As students transition to high school, they are met with a curriculum that is both challenging and enriching. Our high school program offers an in-depth study of classical literature, advanced mathematics, comprehensive sciences, and detailed historical analysis. Beyond academic rigor, we emphasize the development of ethical reasoning, intellectual curiosity, and the capacity for self-reflection – qualities essential for success in college and life. 

At Lincoln Prep, our dedicated faculty are at the heart of our academic community. They are not only educators but mentors who model a love of learning and a commitment to the pursuit of excellence. Our teachers are deeply invested in the success of each student, providing a supportive and engaging learning environment that encourages students to reach their full potential. 

Located in Chandler and serving the broader East Valley, including Gilbert, Arizona, our school benefits from the rich cultural and educational landscape of the area. This vibrant setting enhances the educational experience of our students, providing them with a broader perspective and a deeper understanding of the diverse world they inhabit. We encourage our students to engage with the community, apply their learning in real-world contexts, and develop a keen awareness of their role as responsible citizens. 

As a tuition-free institution, Lincoln Preparatory Academy is committed to making this exceptional educational experience accessible to all families. We believe in the power of a classical education to transform lives, and we are dedicated to providing this opportunity to every child. Our commitment to inclusivity and diversity enriches our school community, bringing together students from various backgrounds to learn from and with each other.
