School Counselors will be meeting with juniors individually to further discuss their life after Lincoln Academy plans. School counselors will help students reflect on their previous three years, their future goals, and explore varying options. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your student’s school counselor.
Juniors who are considering four year college or university, please log into your Collegeboard account and sign up for the SAT. Counselors will speak with juniors about standardized testing during their junior meeting, but they are being encouraged to sign up for the May SAT at LA (the May SAT will only be open to LA students) or test dates that work best with students’ personal schedules. Please reach out to your counselor if you have questions or concerns.
Finance Authority of Maine (FAME) will be hosting a virtual session for Lincoln Academy seniors and their families on Wednesday, March 15th at 6:30pm (https://famemaine.zoom.us/j/86309878862?from=addon). This session will focus on financial aid packages, how to read and compare them, and next steps. Families have found this session to be very helpful and informative when comparing financial aid packages from varying schools and how to make the best financial decision.
Scholarships are updated regularly and posted in Naviance! Encourage your senior to check often. Additionally the CAC office will be running a FLB that will meet weekly to give seniors time to research and apply for scholarships. FLB’s have been shared with students, but feel free to speak with your senior about this option.
Please continue to check your online portals at the colleges and universities where you applied. If materials are missing, we have electronic receipts for all submitted materials from LA and can help. Colleges and universities might be asking for Mid-Year reports. These are not the same as mid-trimester grades. LA does not send mid-trimester grades. We only send end of trimester grades. If you receive a request for a mid-year report, please email your admission officer and remind them that we are on trimesters, and confirm that your first trimester grades have been submitted. In addition, if you think your mid-tri grades represent you well, please feel free to share these grades with your admission officer, and provide them with any updates since submitting your application.
