The Lincoln Community School (LCS) is a private, nonprofit, college preparatory day school which offers educational programs from prekindergarten (age 4) through grade 12.
It was established in 1968 with the aim of being a centre of excellence in the entire West African Region, which appears to be the reason for which the fees are really high.
It is reported that the school year comprises four academic quarters, with the first beginning mid-August and the last ending in mid-June.
Meanwhile, reports confirmed by a photo of an invoice that was taken by a parent whose ward is at the Roman Ridge School in Accra suggests a high admission fee.
In the picture that was sighted by YEN.com.gh on celebritiesbuzz.com.gh, it was indicated that the fee for admission alone was GHc 20,125 which did not include lunch, school uniform and tuition.
As the invoice further revealed, the tuition per term is Ghc 10,580 for students from class six and below, GHc 12,564 for students from form 1 to 5 and GHc 13,225 for sixth form students.
