Greetings Abraham Lincoln High School Community-

 

My name is Gabriela Ureña and I am delighted to be joining the ALHS Community this academic year as a full-time Destination College Advisor. Destination College Advising Corps (DCAC) is a privately funded non-profit organization whose vision is to make college a viable option for all students. Our goal is to help promote and support a college-going culture here at Abraham Lincoln High School.


I will be providing the following college preparation and advising services:

  • Individual Student Services: including Individual Academic Plans, SAT and ACT registration assistance, Financial aid (FAFSA) and scholarship application assistance;
  • Whole-School Services: including College workshops, college campus field trips, classroom presentations, college campus visits;
  • Community/Parent Services: including workshops and information covering college admissions, financial aid/scholarships and college preparation to parent and local community groups.

 

Thank you and I look forward to working with you this year!
