On Tuesday, October 18th Abraham Lincoln High School students will be exploring the different College and Career Academies here at Lincoln. All of our students will be in attendance from 8:25am-11:45am.
All students at Lincoln graduate college and career ready, on path to earning 12 college credits, industry experience, certification, or an Associate’s Degree.

At the same time, our 12th graders will participate in our Senior Success Day where they will listen to and understand what different post secondary institutions can provide them and ultimately will apply to 3 post secondary institutions during the time.
