All prospective students are invited to Lincoln Academy’s 2019 Prospective Student Open House, which will be held on Wednesday, November 13 at 6:30 pm. The event will begin in the Alumni Dining Commons in the center of the Lincoln Academy campus at 81 Academy Hill in Newcastle.
This open house is an annual event at Lincoln Academy; a chance for families of prospective students to visit the LA campus, meet teachers and staff, and tour the school. Often this event is the first time students see their soon-to-be high school and meet many of their teachers. Although most families who attend represent incoming 9th graders, families of students interested in transferring to LA from another high school, or homeschoolers interested in exploring options at LA are also encouraged to attend.
Any student living in a town with secondary school choice can attend LA with their tuition paid by the sending town. LA also accepts tuition-paying students who come from towns without school choice.
This year, Lincoln Academy’s Prospective Student Open House will begin with an orientation by current students and members of the Administration and Guidance Department. Next, families can take a campus tour with student tour guides, and visit an academic and club fair in the LA gym, where faculty and students are available to answer questions about their specialties.
“The LA fall Open House gives students and their families a chance to experience some of what LA has to offer,” said Sarah Wills-Viega, Lincoln Academy’s Director of Counseling and Studies. “We hope that families will leave the event with helpful information about Lincoln Academy, both in general and specific terms, and that students will be excited about coming here next year!”
Families considering Lincoln Academy should plan to attend the Open House, even if they are considering several options for high school. This event is helpful in understanding the wide variety of resources at LA, including 145 total courses, 19 Advanced Placement classes, 30 classes in visual and performing arts, a broad range of hands-on courses in the Cable-Burns Applied Technology and Engineering Center (ATEC), as well as over 40 clubs and athletic teams.
