Counseling Staff

Lincoln Counselors serve over 1500 students. Students are assigned to counselors alphabetically by last name and work with the same counselor for all 4 years. Counselors are available to help with academics, social and emotional needs, personal issues, and planning for the future. We can be contacted by email, phone, or sign-up sheets in the Counseling Center.

If you are interested in helping the Counseling center, please email our volunteer coordinator Alison Freed. Parent volunteers help out with forecasting, registration and college planning. The College & Career center needs Aspire mentors, SPARK presenters (science experts) and the department needs occasional help with large school events.
