The Lincoln Community School (LCS) is a private, nonprofit, college preparatory day school which offers educational programs from prekindergarten (age 4) through grade 12. The School, established in 1968, is located in the cosmopolitan West African city of Accra. The School has positioned itself as a center of excellence in the region, with strong professional development programs for its teachers and serving as a regional site for teacher workshops.
The School is international in both population (60+ nations represented) and philosophy, with an emphasis on inquiry and problem solving. It is designed to be appropriately challenging, and to allow a smooth transition into other international schools. LCS is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, authorized to offer all 3 levels of the IB Program. These 3 levels of the IB Program guide the curriculum: the Primary Years Program (PK–grade 5), the Middle Years Program (grades 6-10) and the IB Diploma Program (grades 11-12). Elective courses are offered in art, music, drama, design, and technology. The school offers English language as an Additional Language (EAL) support for students with developing English skills. Learning support services for students with mild to moderate learning needs are provided, but families who may need additional support are advised to consult with the admission office about the services provided to ensure a good programmatic fit for their child. LCS is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and the International Baccalaureate Organization. It is a member of both the Council of International Schools and the Association of International Schools in Africa (AISA).
