Abraham Lincoln Students are celebrating Career and College Success Month. Through October, Lincoln Students will participate in different workshops, college fairs, and practice testing in preparation for their college and career goals. College and career training is an essential part of most professional goals as 75% of jobs in Colorado in your lifetime will require completion of a college degree or certificate. We encourage students to start exploring college and career options as early as grade 9. These opportunities include Advanced Placement courses, Career Development through work-based learning, Career and Technical Education, Concurrent Enrollment and the Seal of Biliteracy. View the events below taking place at Lincoln and in the Community.
