LINCOLN SCHOOL

Lincoln is an independent school in Providence where bold minds thrive. At the forefront of all-girls education, our advanced Upper School curriculum emphasizes collaboration, research, and curiosity in a rigorous and vigorous academic environment. The new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts/Architecture, Math) Hub for Girls is a state-of-the-art learning space in which young women learn to thrive in traditionally male-dominated fields. The cutting-edge opportunities at Lincoln extend beyond our campus, as well—in partnership with Brown School of Engineering and RISD School of Architecture, students can enroll in college-level Introduction to Engineering and architecture courses. As the nation’s only independent school for girls rooted in Quaker values, we provide a unique community for our students—honesty, respect, equity, and simplicity form our foundation. Here, girls embrace academic challenge, speak their minds, and discover who they are, growing in confidence and character, and delving into futures full of meaning and success in college and beyond.
