High School Diploma

A high school diploma is becoming more and more important in today's working world as a necessary step towards achieving success. In fact, according the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the average high school graduate in 2014 earned approximately $720 per month more than the average person who has not completed high school. You can see the value of a high school diploma, looking at job listings today, many of which require a minimum of completion of high school. Naturally, no educational program can guarantee a future salary or employment upon completion; however, having a high school diploma opens up plenty of new employment opportunities that are closed to those without a high school diploma.

If you are within one to four years of the age of 18, you can earn your high school diploma through an on-campus high school program; however, if you belong to the world of a working or unemployed adult, you have the option to take the General Education Development Test, or the GED.
