Back from Break and Charging Ahead

We hope this newsletter finds you well-rested and rejuvenated after the February break. As we dive back into the swing of things, we’re excited to embark on the final stretch of the second trimester with your incredible students.

PSAT Registration for Sophomores: Just a friendly reminder that PSAT registration for sophomores is underway and must be completed by March 6th. This standardized test offers valuable insights and practice for college readiness. For more information and registration details, please refer to the testing page of our website or feel free to reach out to Ms. Tan via email.

Our next ski day at Sugarloaf is scheduled for this Sunday. It’s a fantastic opportunity for students to unwind and enjoy some outdoor fun.

Lincoln Academy’s upcoming dance is set for next Friday, March 8. It promises to be an evening filled with music, laughter, and memorable moments.

We are immensely proud of our ResLife students for their active involvement in the NEASC Accreditation process. NEASC Accreditation is a globally recognized standard of excellence that attests to a school’s high quality and integrity. Our students’ participation in interviews provided invaluable feedback about their experience at Lincoln Academy, contributing significantly to our ongoing commitment to excellence. 

To Do:   

Please continue entering April Vacation plans into Orah.  Thank you to those of you who have already done so. 

We strongly encourage all parents of Lincoln Academy students to complete the parent survey to further enrich the data being accumulated. Your feedback is invaluable in shaping and enhancing the Lincoln Academy experience for all students.

Be well and take care,
