Confident and Compassionate Thinkers

Intellectual engagement, character development, and community are at the heart of learning in the Upper School at Lincoln. Within our rigorous and globally oriented academic program, students immerse themselves in a wide range of course offerings, both on our East Side campus and through our partner organizations in the Greater Providence area and around the world.

You might find Upper School students collaborating with peers to troubleshoot the mechanisms of a student-designed robot, reciting Shakespeare monologues on stage, dissecting the meaning of a nuanced passage in a novel, or learning to fabricate metal sculptures at the Providence Steel Yard. Through these experiences they learn that no field is out of their reach, no challenge too big to tackle.

Upper School students craft individualized academic programs based on their interests and passions, built around a robust core curriculum. Small classes allow our faculty to support each student in her intellectual development while fostering an engaging, collaborative, and supportive classroom environment. Over the course of their four years in Upper School, Lincoln students evolve into confident thinkers and doers who attend top colleges and go on to make an impact.

A school rooted in Quaker values, Lincoln’s Upper School students are respected for their individual gifts and classroom environments are fostered to ensure every student’s voice, lived experience, and perspective matters.
