Counseling

Lincoln Counseling Office

The counselors at Lincoln High School work with individual students and with groups to help them develop strategies for success in academics, and in considering their post-high school plans and future careers. Counselors challenge students to become aware of their individual strengths, to develop methods for dealing with difficulties, to set goals, to make choices and to consider consequences.

The Counselor’s Schoology pages have been updated with lessons, presentations, forms, and other useful resources. Please visit your Counselor’s Schoology and click on the Materials tab.

We are also holding Office Hours from 9-3:30 daily by appointment .

You can either make an appointment through the Counseling Page via Bookings or through the link embedded in Schoology. Go to the Student and Family Portal page for links to Schoology.

Make wise choices, be healthy, and do something constructive and thoughtful every day!


Frequently Asked Questions

What is the role of a school counselor?

School Counselors work in three primary domains: social/emotional, academic support, and postsecondary planning. Within those domains, we use data to determine how and what we deliver to students. Our delivery of information needs to be relevant, equitable, and accessible by the vast majority of students. The majority of students will get information relevant to them through our grade level or schoolwide programming. We know that some will still have questions or specific circumstances and will want extra support. Those students are encouraged to bring those questions to a meeting with their counselor.

I know of someone who needs extra help. What should I tell them?

Or encourage them reach out to their counselor or administrator so that we can provide assistance.  They can email lincolncounseling@seattleschools.org or lincoln@seattleschools.org

Can I take online courses over the summer or during the school year to jump ahead in the course sequence or fulfill other required courses?

We often get questions about course acceleration with out of district courses or online courses. Please direct any questions you have in this regard to CCR@seattleschools.org so that district staff can provide you with the most current guidance BEFORE you sign up for anything. A couple of basics:

  1. Online vendors that provide courses are not always schools and do not provide transcripts, purchasing a course online is not home-based instruction. Go to OSPI’s Home Based Instruction page for requirements and information about home schooling,
  2. The district has an Out of District policy which applies to both Middle and High school, go to the SPS website Seattle Public Schools/Academics/High School, College, Career/Out-of-District Credits and Credit Recovery for details and FAQs.
