ROCHESTER, Pa., Feb. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania-based nonprofit Lincoln Learning Solutions today announced it will provide elementary school students in Louisiana with state standards-aligned, engaging curriculum as part of a choice of learning tools at University View Academy.
"We are working hand-in-glove with administrators at University View Academy to assure their kindergarten through fifth-grade students have a top-notch experience with Lincoln Empowered, our flagship curriculum," Bob Clements, President of Lincoln Learning Solutions, said.
University View Academy, which serves 2100 students from 60 parishes, will utilize the courses in the 2017-2018 school year to teach nearly 600 kindergarten through fifth-grade students in English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education Art and Music.
