Residential Life Update – August 28, 2022

2022-08-26T21:37:46-04:00August 28, 2022|

Welcome to the New School Year!

Lincoln Academy’s Residential Life Program is kicking off the new school year with 35 students and a few more expected to join us over the coming weeks.  Please be on the lookout for this weekly newsletter for important updates, calendar items, and photos of our time together. 

We have had students on campus since mid-August.  Many arrived for pre-season athletics and everyone has been busy getting their rooms organized, building academic schedules, making friends, and starting to explore Midcoast Maine.  We have taken trips to the beach, hiking, shopping, enjoyed ice cream, and even visited Maine’s famous amusement park – Fun Town!

The coming week marks the start of school with 9th graders beginning on Wednesday and all students on Thursday, September 1.  This coming weekend is a 3-day holiday weekend and we will celebrate all things Maine including hiking Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park, traveling to the Windsor Fair, ocean kayaking, a lobster boat tour, and a traditional lobster bake at Pemaquid Point lighthouse (a special historic site featured on the Maine State Quarter!).

Finally, we’d like to take a moment to welcome Monica Tan into her new role of Director of Residential Life Monica has been a part of our community since 2019, serving as a beloved dorm parent with her spouse Lu-Shien Tan, Director of Admissions, and we are excited to have Monica moving into a leadership role in the Residential Life Office.  Monica will be the point person in communication with families and students in the residential program.  Jake Abbott will continue in his role as Dean of Students and Dorm Parent and is looking forward to working closely with Monica and the rest of our Residential Life Team this year!
