Lincoln Academy in Newcastle is offering an event called Sophomore-Junior Family Night from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8 (storm date: Thursday, March 9) in the LA Alumni Dining Commons. This meeting will focus on postsecondary education information, as the college application process is quite detailed and complex. A panel of four or five college admissions personnel — including representatives from Colby College, the University of Maine, and the University of New England — will be there to talk about the process and to answer any questions that one may have.
This year is important for juniors, particularly as they plan for the future, and school personnel will work closely with them in developing a plan that is appropriate. It is also a good time for sophomores to begin thinking about life after high school. It is recognized that not everyone will be going on to college, and school personnel are available to work individually with students developing other plans.
Lincoln Academy is located at 81 Academy Hill Road, Newcastle. For more information, call 563-3596 ext. 125 or 128.
