Beth Ellis, Lincoln School’s director of College Counseling, has worked at some of the top schools in the country, and now spends her days helping Lincoln girls gain admission to the schools at the tops of their own lists.
Thank you for your interest in learning more about our dynamic, student-centered approach to college counseling. The college search and application process is an exciting time of self-discovery. Our goal is to help students to navigate their journey thoughtfully and confidently, identifying colleges and universities that are the best fit for their unique set of interests, talents, and needs. We partner with parents and faculty as we support each student along her path.
Along the way, we encourage students to:
- Take intellectual risks
- Tap into the joy of what they do
- Pay attention to when they are deeply engaged both in and out of the classroom
As they move through the Upper School, students work with the college counselor to develop a list of schools that will fully engage their interests and preferences. Whether a student chooses a large research institution in the South, an art school across the country, a small liberal arts college closer to home, or a university abroad, she will leave Lincoln confident in her ability to thrive in her chosen environment.
Lincoln welcomes over 100 college representatives to the counseling office annually. This provides opportunities for our students to speak with admission officers in small group settings and for our colleagues at schools across the country and around the world to be well informed about the Lincoln School educational experience.

At Lincoln School, we believe in bold minds that forge their own paths. Two such minds are members of the Class of 2018, Portia Gaitskell and Lynn Villarica, who have big plans to thrive at prestigious schools after Lincoln, but not before taking some time to make their mark on far corners of the world.
With just a little over a month left until graduation on June 5, the class of 2018 is gearing up for great things.
