Welcome to Lincoln Academy, a comprehensive, independent secondary school founded in 1801. For over 200 years, Lincoln Academy has been serving the educational needs of students from the Midcoast of Maine and beyond. Our dedicated faculty and staff actively strive to meet the needs of each student, and we are constantly developing new curricula and programs to serve our diverse student population. Lincoln Academy is ideally situated in Newcastle, Maine, at the base of the beautiful Pemaquid Peninsula, and our students enjoy a safe and welcoming environment from which to challenge themselves to grow as individuals.
Students enjoy a wealth of opportunities to explore and experience the natural world. Forests, rivers, beaches, and the rocky coastline along the Atlantic Ocean are all in their “backyard” and further enhance their comprehensive academic experience on campus. Wherever your interests lie — in boat building, mathematics, the creative arts, science and technology, marine science, poetry, outdoor recreation, literature or economics — we have the courses and programs you want. You can work on a welding project and take AP courses; take an entrepreneurial studies course and yoga; or design your own program. Our faculty and staff will work with you as you study and explore, ensuring that you have options and opportunities for further growth when you graduate from LA.
Exciting things are happening on our campus. Our Marine Studies and Exploration Program is entering its third year and growing. In February 2015, students began taking classes in our new Cable-Burns Applied Technology and Engineering Center, and we continue to add new related courses to our curriculum. At the same time, resident students and faculty moved into our new residence hall. Last summer, we completed the construction of our state-of-the-art synthetic turf athletic field, and we will complete work on our new baseball field in June. This expansion of the campus allows us to offer students an even broader personal and academic experience at Lincoln Academy.
I encourage you to visit us here in Newcastle, and I look forward to meeting you!
