The Counseling Program at Lincoln includes three Counselors and an assistant. There is a PK-grade 5 counselor, a counselor for grade 6-9, and a counselor for grades 10-12. As much as possible the counselors collaborate and even bring students together for mentoring and discussions when this is relevant. In grade 10, in addition to individual counseling and informal sessions, the Counselor conducts lessons on career exploration, course choice, child protection and other topics as needed.
In grade 11 the Counseling program becomes more intensive around college and career and academic preparations but individual counseling and informal sessions of course continue. Two Parent nights are held in November and February for 11th grade parents. In grade 11 there is a formal twelve-session Counseling Curriculum. In grade 12 students have a great deal of one-on-one and Advisory time with the Counselor. In addition, beginning in October the Counselor holds Saturday sessions to offer support on College Applications, as well as after-school Essay workshops one day a week. There is one Grade 12 Parent night in the fall and the Counselor encourages individual family meetings as well. Additionally there is a ten-session Counseling Curriculum taught in ToK blocks and in Advisory.
Lincoln hosts visits from over 25 colleges each year. In addition, Lincoln hosts a CIS Fair each fall. Lincoln is also happy to help College Representatives connect with other area schools. We can host visits throughout the year and can best accommodate presentations daily between 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. To schedule a visit to Lincoln, please contact Ms. Susana Bansah at email@example.com.
