In 2012, Lincoln Memorial and the Lincoln Family Life Center united with the Academy of Science and Engineering to open a charter high school with state of the art facilities to prepare students to excel in science, technology, engineering and math. Also, Pastor Reevers and the church began discussions with KIPP Scholar Academy to open a middle school on Lincoln campus.
