Lincoln-Way High School's CORE program is designed to provide opportunities and activities for a unique and creative group of students. CORE students in general are a wonderful group of very
bright young people who have a pattern of academic underachievement during the middle school years. The program is designed to provide instruction and motivation in their own learning styles, with the emphasis on preparation for the college-prep program.
To our incoming freshman -- the class of 2004!
The CORE program was designed with you in mind!
You will find CORE to be a challenging and exciting
way to learn -- not only content, but also the skills
