Athletics at Lincoln are all about girls: they’re the focus and the stars. Fueled by equal parts teamwork and individual drive, our athletes have clinched 45 league championships over the years. The confidence and resilience they develop on the field — or pool or courts — follows them back to the classroom and throughout their lives.
Lincoln School's athletic program develops the students' physical skills, enhances self-esteem, encourages individual and team accomplishments, and instills sportsmanship and the spirit of fair play.
The school feels strongly that healthy competition and cooperation in sports is not only beneficial to a student's physical development, but influences her academic life by teaching her how to set realistic goals, exercise discipline, and develop time management skills.
We offer 9 varsity sports in the Upper School and 6 in the Middle School. Girls in Grade 5 are invited to play on Middle School teams.
