Welcome to The Office of College Counseling at Lincoln Preparatory Academy! Lincoln Preparatory Academy is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and complies with the NACAC Statement of Principles of Good Practice.
Great Hearts is committed to an individualized approach to college counseling that focuses on finding the right fit for each student. The emphasis of the program is on helping students discover who they are as learners and emerging adults. Throughout their years at Lincoln Prep, our students learn to be comfortable in the worlds of both ideas and practicality, understanding the relationship between the two. This serves our students particularly well when selecting a college experience. News, updates, and announcements from the College Counseling Office are posted in Lincoln Prep’s weekly newsletter.
Great Hearts Lincoln Prep is eager to graduate our inaugural class of 2020!
The next two months are a busy time of year for our scholars. The PSAT is on the horizon, College Fairs are taking place, Lincoln will host a College Financial Aid Night for all High School families, and Great Heats College Symposium is drawing attention from Colleges and Universities across our country. Wednesday, October 24 all 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students will be taking the PSAT test. Register at https://lincolnprep.configio.com/search?cid=424.
