Mr. Robby Kuhlman, Lincoln’s headmaster, believes that a school runs most efficiently when parents are involved. We encourage you to get involved in any of the following areas listed below. There’s a quick contact form at the bottom of this page that you can fill out to let us know you want to help. 

Note that all volunteers who work with students must be fingerprint cleared before working in school. If your child attended another Great Hearts school last year and you were fingerprint cleared there, contact Great Hearts HR to have your fingerprint card transferred to Archway Lincoln.

Please fill out the form below and let us know your area(s) of interest. We will be in touch soon!
