All Girls Quaker Education 
Girls Who Code Clubs Murray Family Athletic Complex at Faxon Farm
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. In partnership with Girls Who Code and led by Director of Technology Doug Alexander, Lincoln launched Middle and Upper School Girls Who Code Clubs this year to inspire, educate, and equip our students with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities in computer science and the tech industry.  Lincoln's 33-acre athletic complex is located in Rehoboth, MA. The complex features the only synthetic turf field lined for girls sports in southeast New England, two natural turf fields, and six all-weather tennis courts. The athletic facilities on the Providence campus include the Boss-McLoughlin Gymnasium, the Wheeler Gymnasium, and the Amy Leeds Fitness Center. Lincoln competes in three leagues and offers 9 sports for Middle and Upper School students, including soccer, cross country, basketball, swimming, squash, field hockey, tennis, lacrosse, and crew.

Leadership Program to India  Center for Peace, Equity and Justice through Service  Partnership with RISD
In partnership with the World Leadership School, Head of School Suzanne Fogarty and Upper School History Teacher Barret Fabris will facilitate a trimester-long course around challenges facing women in India as well as the broader social, political, and historical context in which they find themselves in preparation for an 11-day community service program to India during March break. Watch this video to learn more about this new global program at Lincoln. The goal of the Center is to facilitate ongoing programs in the areas of diversity, service, and Quakerism, including International Women’s Day, Morgan Stone Day, and the All-School Day of Service, and to promote new initiatives in these realms.  In partnership with the Rhode Island School of Design, the nation’s leading art and design school located in the heart of Providence, Lincoln students have the opportunity to take an “Women and Architecture” course for credit on RISD’s campus to study how females design and build occupiable spaces, and to examine if women perceive spaces differently based on their gender.
 Reggio Emilia Program and The Studio  Shakespeare in the City Edible Garden and Outdoor Classroom
Our Early Childhood Program, inspired by pre-schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy, is driven by children’s own interests and natural curiosity, which are fostered through interactions with teachers, each other, and the environment around them, including The Studio, where children use materials from the natural world to work on individual and collaborative creations. Originated and orchestrated by Middle School Teacher Martha Douglas-Osmundson and in keeping with the School’s spirit of leadership and collaboration, Lincoln has presented an annual production of a single work of Shakespeare performed by over 200 students from 20+ Providence-area schools since 2010. Lincoln’s Edible Garden provides an opportunity for students to plant and harvest herbs and vegetables that are used in art projects, in our dining room, and donated to local charities. Similarly, the Lower School Outdoor Classroom allows students and teachers to observe, interact with, and enjoy the natural environment while conducting research and engaging in creative writing.
   
Alumnae Speaker Series  Singapore Math Language Program
This speaker series highlights the breadth of talents and accomplishments of Lincoln alumnae and seeks to bring current students in closer connection with alumnae across generations through their stories about their journeys after Lincoln and how they are making a difference. Lower School students learn Singapore Math, a method that teaches students math concepts in greater detail through a three-step learning process (concrete, pictorial, and abstract) that allows them to approach, understand, and solve mathematical problems more holistically. Lincoln students are exposed to French and Spanish beginning at age 2 and have the opportunity to pursue French, Spanish, Latin, Arabic, and any number of other world languages through the Online School for Girls throughout the Middle and Upper Schools. 

   
Art Immersion at the Steel Yard   Online School for Girls  
In addition to Lincoln’s rigorous Visual Art Major Programs, students have the opportunity to take advantage of Providence’s creative community resources and earn course credit over the summer by taking a “Metalworking and Blacksmithing” course at the Steel Yard. Lincoln is proud to be a member of the Online School for Girls, where students can take advantage of expanded course offerings–including Japanese, Genetics & Human Biology, and AP Macroeconomics–enhanced international connections, increased flexibility in scheduling, enriched learning opportunities, and a targeted online learning experience.
