Continuously striving to maximize student potential
Based in Rochester, Pennsylvania, Lincoln Learning Solutions is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization offering personalized online learning solutions and support services. The company was founded in 2005 to develop and deliver online curriculum, leveraging the power of the evolving online learning model. Lincoln Learning Solutions has always been driven to do what is best for the student. The company’s first flagship product, Lincoln Interactive, was a PreK-12 online curriculum that delivered to students a tailored educational experience. In just five years, Lincoln Interactive garnered national recognition and went from being used by a handful of clients to serving the needs of nearly 250 schools, districts, and educational consortiums across 22 states and two continents.
