Lincoln School

Lincoln School is an independent college preparatory school founded on Quaker principles in 1884.
As the only all-girls Quaker school in the nation, Lincoln empowers its students to become bold leaders and to strive for greatness.
At the same time, Lincoln`s educational philosophy and practices incorporate the Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, service, and stewardship of the earth into the lives of its students and faculty on a daily basis.
This unique intersection allows our students to excel not only academically and extracurricularly, but also fosters confident, resilient, and globally-minded leaders in relevant issues affecting the world at large.
