Nursery—Grade 5

Rolling Admission

Lincoln will consider admission applications after February 1, 2019 as space remains available.

    • Once complete, a user name will be sent via email to access Lincoln’s online Admission Portal.
  2. Complete the Admission Application
    • Upon receiving access to the Admission Portal, complete the various sections of the admission application. The portal also allows you to track the status of an application. A non-refundable $55 fee is required.
  3. Schedule a Student Visit Day and Parent Tour
    • The best way to experience Lincoln School is by visiting. Every applicant is required to spend a day (or less, for our younger applicants) with a Lincoln student host to meet potential future classmates and participate in classroom activities. Parents will be provided a tour and a time to talk with an admission representative at this time. Please contact the Admission Office at 331­-9696 x 3157 or admission@lincolnschool.org to schedule this visit and tour.

  5. Teacher Recommendation
    • We want to learn more about our applicants from those who know them best. An early childhood teacher recommendation is required for applicants to Nursery, Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Grade 1. A teacher recommendation is required for applicants to Grades 2–5. Although not required, additional letters of recommendation from individuals who know the applicant well (coach, religious leader, performing arts instructor, etc.) are welcome.
