Lincoln School’s Global Programs embody our Quaker values of peace, integrity, equality, and community, and we are so pleased to share that, after a pandemic pause, Global Programs are back on the schedule for the 2022–23 school year. Developed by an international group of educators, tremendous intention and care went into ensuring the program is transformative and meaningful for the students as well as the host communities, and the immersive program is unique to Lincoln School.
