Lincoln is an independent school in Providence, Rhode Island offering a rigorous and exciting learning experience that blends tradition with innovation. As the nation’s only independent school for girls rooted in Quaker values, we provide a unique educational community for grades 1 through 12. We also offer a coed program from six weeks through kindergarten. Our students come from the greater Providence area and beyond, and represent diverse backgrounds and religious traditions.
At Lincoln, students take risks, build confidence, and discover their passions within the embrace of a supportive and inclusive community. Our challenging curriculum, small class sizes, and talented faculty—plus exclusive partnerships with Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, Save the Bay, and other unique programs—make for a robust educational experience where students’ intellectual curiosity can grow. Outside of class, Lincoln students delve into athletics, arts, and service opportunities.
In keeping with our Quaker roots, character, cooperation, and mutual respect are central to life at our school. Through weekly silent meetings and regular assemblies, we reinforce and reflect on our shared values and stay connected. Independent thinking and individuality stand on equal footing with kindness and acceptance: Lincoln students achieve, but never at the expense of each other. So when they graduate, they’re not only equipped for academic success; they’re prepared to build meaningful lives.
