Alumni are important to all aspects of the school’s success. Because of LA’s long history of serving as the local high school for our communities, alumni are ‘also’ parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, Trustees, faculty, staff, administrators, vendors, contractors, and — of course — contributors. Alumni are by far the main source of support for Lincoln Academy.
The local connections are at the heart of the Academy and a source of strength, support, and interaction to cnsure that programs continue to serve our students. Keeping alumni connected with the school and with each other is a main function of the Alumni/Development Office, which is located in Borland Hall, across from the Hall House.
The Alumni Association: “Alumni” are all students who spent one year or more at LA. All alumni are automatically members of the Association. The Alumni Council is elected by the alumni at the annual Alumni Banquet in June to lead the Association. The Council keeps alumni spirit and connections alive by organizing three annual events for alumni, publishing the Lincoln Log, guiding the Lincoln Academy Sports Hall of Fame and sponsoring the annual Alumna/us of the Year and Alumni Service Awards.

Alumnus of the Year
The Alumnus of the Year award is given each year at the Alumni Banquet. The Association honors an alumnus/a who has made outstanding contributions to the school and the community.
The Attendance Award, also awarded at the banquet, goes to the class with the most people at the banquet.
