We offer a college preparatory curriculum that combines the traditional values of hard work, respect, honor, honesty, and self-discipline within a challenging academic program designed to unlock the potential of each student.

Linsly is a place where life-long friendships between students and faculty are formed.
Student uniforms are not to encourage conformity, but to ensure that students are known for their unique ideas and abilities.
