As one of the leading international schools in Africa, LCS has been serving families in Accra, Ghana for over 50 years. Our rich history, depth of experience, and commitment to excellence in education have made us a top choice for families. We are a diverse international school community that provides an English-language-based pre-K through Grade 12 education, grounded in a mission and vision that is learning focused. Our mission is central to all that we do at LCS: learning, leading and connecting are our cornerstones. It is important to us that your child develops the skills and dispositions to be a successful learner, a confident leader and a connected member of the global world. We strive also to integrate the IB Learner Profile attributes and the values of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, and citizenship into all areas of the school.

What brings the school’s mission, vision and values to life is the outstanding faculty and staff that LCS employs. Over half of our teaching staff are from the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom, while our local teachers are recruited from the very best private and public schools here in Ghana. As the Head of School, I am confident that your child will be surrounded by inspiring, passionate and caring adults whose mission is to ensure that the individual needs of all of their students as learners and young people are met. 

LCS is known for its family-friendliness and the value we place on relationships and community. In this spirit, we invite you to visit our school to learn more about the diverse ways in which LCS can serve your family. Please contact me on ltait@lincoln.edu.gh or any of our outstanding staff here at LCS with any questions you may have. It would be our great pleasure to welcome you to the Lincoln family!
