LA students gave tours to the incoming Class of 2026 on the first eighth grade in-person campus visits since 2020

We were happy to welcome the first of several groups of eighth graders to the LA campus today as part of their transition to high school. It was great to see future members of the LA class of 2026 getting their first glimpses of Lincoln Academy in person, after these visits had to be canceled last year. We look forward to seeing more of them in the next two weeks, as groups from our local sending schools come for tours. If you know a student who is considering LIncoln Academy who is not yet signed up for a campus visit, please reach out to our Admissions Office (207-563-3596 ext. 1107 or and we will make those arrangements.

Another event that was back in person this year was the District III music festival for both band and choir, which took place on Friday. While the event had to be shortened to one day due to the storm, I know all of the musicians who participated welcomed the opportunity to celebrate music excellence. It is a big honor to be selected for these festivals, and we are very proud of our LA musicians.

I always enjoy reading the ‘‘Characters of the County” section of the Lincoln County News, and we are proud to claim four recent “Characters” as part of the Lincoln Academy family: alumnus  and local business owner Joe Lugosch ‘08, his classmate and our own chef Russell Brackett ‘08, current freshman Roan Donaghy ‘25, and Cross Country and Track coach Garrett Martin have all been featured in the paper in the last month. We are lucky to live in a community with such a vibrant local newspaper that does such a great job covering the people and events of LA.

Please join us for a LAPA (Lincoln Academy Parent Association) meeting this Thursday, February 3 at 6 pm (link to join) where we will talk about what to expect in the weeks and months ahead and try to answer parent questions.

We are enjoying our blanket of white here at school, trying to fit in a full winter season of classes, performing arts, and sports between winter storms. 

Be well and stay safe,

Jeffrey S. Burroughs
