Entrepreneurial Thought and Action
A person who sees a problem is a human being; a person who finds a solution is visionary; and the person who goes out and does something about it is an entrepreneur. –Naveen Jain
Entrepreneurship is the driving force behind innovation and social change. We strive to help our students understand who they need to be and what they need to do, in order to make the changes they wish
in local and global communities.
Our teaching method familiarizes students with the stages of entrepreneurial thinking all the way from Pre-Kinder to 12th grade. Lincoln School’s curriculum includes entrepreneurial modeled classes for students to develop their own projects through all their years in our Institution.
The entrepreneurial thinking model aligns with the International Baccalaureate program, as they both push young students to impact the world with their actions. Lincoln School provides young people with all of the tools necessary to fulfill their projects and build upon the skills they need to become the leaders of change. We believe in helping our students set themselves apart with their stamina and entrepreneurial spirit, bringing their passions to life. Their ideas push them around to dream, learn and build, inspiring and engaging others on the way!
Partnership with the Lewis Institute at Babson College
Babson College is recognized as one of the world’s leading Entrepreneurship Education Institutions. The Lewis Institute is the affiliate organization dedicated to promoting social innovation and sharing Babson College’s Entrepreneurship Thought & Action methodology. In 2018, The Lewis Institute began to collaborate with Lincoln School to develop the entrepreneurship program. Since then communication has been constant to align best entrepreneurial education pedagogy, and opportunities for Lincoln School students, moving forward to share with local and global communities.
This curricular program, which runs from Pre-Kinder to twelfth grade, is designed to teach students that service should be a life-long activity. Service Learning aims to build individual and collective capacity in our students to create a more environmentally friendly and just world. Through scaffolded experiences, the program moves from a teacher directed approach in the early years, to teacher facilitated Service As Action in the MYP years, to a student directed model through Creativity-Activity-Service in the Diploma program. Under a CAS for all philosophy, all students in grades 9 through 12, regardless of the academic program they are enrolled in, engage in experiences that are challenging, enjoyable and a journey of self-discovery. In addition, they identify an issue of global and local significance and through a service project each school year, they ideate, iterate and reflect on sustainable and ethical solutions to address the issue. With the built-in support of advisor teachers, Lincoln School Service-Learning programs are an avenue for the development of international mindedness, social innovation and social entrepreneurship initiatives to create a positive impact in the world.
