A Quaker Foundation
Lincoln School came under the governance of the New England Yearly Meeting and the Religious Society of Friends in 1924 to provide a Quaker education for girls in Providence. As the only all-girls Quaker school in the United States, Lincoln School prides itself as being a community where girls and young women discover their confidence and in turn encourage the strengths and voices of others.
Lincoln recognizes that women continue to be a marginalized community in our society, and through the incorporation of the Quaker tenets of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, Service, and Stewardship of the Earth (SPICES) into daily life, students engage in critical self-reflection in order to actively address this marginalization.
At Lincoln, our students do not simply strive to shatter the so-called “glass ceiling,” but actively work to dismantle the structures that support its existence.
