Information for Seniors

There was a 12th grade class meeting on Friday, September 17, 2021 for all seniors. In this meeting, senior class advisors and counselors covered the following topics:

  • How to order caps and gowns (see following information)
  • How to request a letter of recommendation from a Lincoln staff member
  • General information for beginning the college application process
  • Important upcoming dates

This fall, we hope to offer support to 12th grade students in the following areas: FAFSA applications, Essay writing, and navigating the various application portals. We are also working with Seattle Colleges to host information nights about the Seattle Promise Program and all of its benefits.

Email with any questions or to set up an appt with your counselor!

Graduation Information

Each LHS senior needs to register through the graduation company. This is due by Friday, September 24. Many seniors did this during the meeting on Friday Sept 17. Please search for “Lincoln High School – Seattle” (including the dash between School and Seattle) to find the correct Lincoln HS.

Graduation orders must be placed by December 31, 2021 for cap and gown, as well as anything else that your senior wants to order, in order to get the best price. Orders placed after this date will be more expensive. Order your graduation items.

Select “shop grad products” and then use the green “continue shopping” button at the bottom of each page to rotate through the selections.

The only items that are required for seniors to purchase is the package that includes the cap, gown, tassel, and stole. That is the first item listed on this page.If you need financial assistance for these items, please contact your student’s counselor as early as possible.
