Because Lincoln Academy is a ten minute walk from the twin villages of Newcastle and Damariscotta, students are able to sign out from campus and walk downtown. With at least six restaurants, dozens of shops, two small department stores, a theater, library and four churches within walking distance, our students are able to safely explore and shop anytime they are free. The beautiful downtown area is a tourist destination and hosts lively events throughout the year; Pumpkinfest, Pirate Day, Oyster Festivals, Holiday Shopping parties and Art Walks are wonderful attractions for students and visitors. Below are a few organizations that promote community engagement, volunteerism, academic growth and cultural understanding.
