Students transferring to Lincoln in grades 8-12 from countries without educational agreements with Argentina, will be given “equivalency” studies  in Spanish language. The equivalency studies, in conjunction with the required coursework in the Lincoln curriculum,  are designed to enable even beginning Spanish students to reach the minimum level of Spanish language proficiency necessary for the Argentine diploma (Bachillerato). The equivalency studies will be administered through the Spanish Department.  Award of the Bachillerato is contingent on successful completion of the equivalency studies.
