The innovative Science Focus Program was the first focus program within Lincoln Public Schools, enrolling its first students in 1997. Students who attend the Science Focus Program remain students at their home schools, where they can participate in activities, athletics and social events. Students spend part of their mornings at their home school before attending the Science Focus Program the rest of the day. LPS provides busing to and from their home high schools for those who need it.
The Science Focus Program is continually accepting applications, but the target date for applications to attend in fall 2020 is December 10th, 2019.
The Science Focus Program is located at a unique setting – the Lincoln Children’s Zoo – but we’re much more than that.
