Greetings from the College Counseling Office at Lincoln School! Thank you for investigating our dynamic and student centered program. Our work with students and families is guided by Lincoln’s mission statement, incorporating the focus on knowledge, simplicity, and the nurturing of special talents and interests, along with confidence and achievement. Just as we educate the whole person at Lincoln, the college counseling office at Lincoln meets every girl where she is, guiding her to her best decision making for her future.
The college counselor serves as a facilitator in each girl’s college search and investigation, recognizing that there is no one “best” college, but in fact the best colleges are those that truly meet the needs and support the interests and aspirations of each girl. We look for fit between student and program, and know that each girl is likely to identify several schools that will be a very good fit for her.
The journey of self-discovery is unique for every student, and we encourage each girl to commit to exploring her own strengths, interests and challenges as she begins the college investigation process. This holistic approach allows each girl to learn about both colleges and universities of interest to her, along with new ideas and possibilities, while even more importantly, she learns about herself and her strengths.
Welcoming well over 100 college representatives to Lincoln’s College Counseling Office annually, we work closely with our college colleagues to insure that they are well informed about the Lincoln School educational experience and about each applicant in that context. We welcome your visit or questions whenever they arise and look forward to our work together.

Director of College Counseling
