What LPS Can Offer Your Student

Many nonpublic school students enroll part-time for courses or programs at Lincoln Public Schools for various reasons. Here are some potential scenarios that could lead to the part-time enrollment of nonpublic school students:

  • It can grow more challenging to help a home-schooled child with certain classes (e.g. math, science, world languages, etc.). That student—no matter what grade—can enroll in these types of courses with LPS.

  • Often a student who is home-schooled would still like to participate in extracurricular NSAA* activities offered through Lincoln Public Schools, such as team sports or speech. Non-NSAA activities also are available, such as band, debate or a club sport. They can do this by meeting a few simple requirements.

    *Visit nsaahome.org for a full list of NSAA sanctioned sports.

  • Sometimes students are interested in a course or program that only Lincoln Public Schools can offer them—for example, Chinese, certain technology courses or The Career Academy. These students can enroll in these courses through LPS.
