Meet our new DCAC College Advisor!

We are excited to welcome Aliyah McGuire, our new Destination College Advising Corps fellow, to the Harbor High counseling team! Check out her video and bio below to learn more about her work on the Pirate Ship.

Hello, my name is Aliyah McGuire. I'm a recent graduate from UC San Diego with a BA in International Studies – Linguistics and a minor in Philosophy. I’m currently pursuing my Master’s degree in International and Multicultural Education at the University of San Francisco.

I’m a full-time adviser for Destination College Advising Corps (DCAC) in partnership with UC Santa Cruz, here at Harbor High. The goal of DCAC is to increase the number of first-generation college and underrepresented high school students who enter and complete higher education. We do this by helping students each step of the way in figuring out their plans for after high school, choosing colleges to apply to, registering for exams, touring and learning about college campuses, resources to pay for college and through it all including students’ families in this process.

Here at Harbor High, in service to senior students, we’re able to offer college application assistance workshops, financial aid support and review, informational presentations and more in both group and 1:1 individual advising settings.

You can reach me at my email aljmcgui@ucsc.edu, call me at (831) 459-5995, or set up an appointment with me at this Calendly link.
