As the only girls' school based on Quaker values in the United States, Lincoln honors the value of each individual while centering the Quaker values of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship (SPICES).
Fostering the Quaker values of community and stewardship, the Global Citizenship Program is a working testament to the idea that all human beings are a part of a universal moral community. Within this community, each person is equal in dignity and value. It is the responsibility of the Global Citizenship Program to instill this understanding of a shared humanity across all school curricula and empower students and faculty to recognize differences and heighten the community’s understanding of their own freedom and autonomy to attain peace.
The Upper School Global Programs reside in three categories: Critical Cultural Exchange in Communities, Critical Action with NGOs, and Language Immersion
Critical Cultural Exchange Programs are rooted in the critical investigation of our narrative and the narratives of others. Examples of past and current programs include India, Cuba, Morocco, and Tanzania.
Critical Action Programs are rooted in understanding how structural and historical issues impact international affairs and overall identity. Examples of past and current programs include Puerto Rico and Greece.
Language Immersion is rooted in supporting students in applying their academic coursework to real world contexts . Our current partnership program with Rocky Hill to Costa Rica is an example of this immersion.
