Employer Description
 
Lincoln is an independent school in Providence, Rhode Island offering a rigorous and exciting learning experience that blends tradition with innovation. As the nation’s only independent school for girls rooted in Quaker values, we provide a unique educational community for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. We also offer a coed program from six weeks through Pre-Kindergarten. Our students come from the greater Providence area and beyond, and represent diverse backgrounds and religious traditions.

Providence is a unique and artful city. It is also the 18th-most diverse community in the U.S. More than 40% of the population is Latinx and 16% is Black or African American. Lincoln’s campus extends beyond our walls. Bringing the greater community to our campus and Lincoln students into the community, we partner with powerhouses of education, creativity, science, exploration, STEAM, and so much more to add richness, diversity, and vibrancy to life and learning at Lincoln.

Mission:

Lincoln School’s dynamic academic program, rooted in Quaker principles, educates girls to fearlessly embrace the opportunities and responsibilities of full citizenship in a complex world. 

Values:

We value all-girls education. 

We value the life of the mind and intellectual challenge. 

We value a global perspective in service of social justice and responsibility. 

We value a community of trust and mutual respect which affirms the inherent value of every person.

Diversity Mission Statement
 

Lincoln School values difference and honors a multiplicity of perspectives that includes, but is not limited to, age, religion, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, gender, physical ability, and family structure. We are committed to the Quaker values of equity, justice, peace, and community. These ideals are driven by an understanding that a socially conscious learner is an empowered one, one who engages in critical self reflection and honest action.

All members of the Lincoln School community—students, alumnae, faculty, staff, administrators, parents, and trustees—will honor, embrace, and empower difference and individuality as sources of strength.
