Having a high school diploma will open doors to your future. Careers you never thought possible start with you and your high school diploma. There are many benefits to earning your diploma versus a GED – Better career opportunities, higher salaries, college opportunities, and most of all, pride in yourself!
BENEFIT #1 – Better Career Opportunities
Employers around the country are looking for educated and qualified workers. The pool of job applicants is large. With a high school diploma, you will be better equipped and more competitive than students who have dropped out of school. No more competing for low wage, high turnover fast food jobs. With a high school diploma, you can enter the workforce at entry-level positions in a field that complements your talents.
BENEFIT #2 – Higher Salary
Students who learn more, earn more! You will make more than minimum wage with a high school diploma and possibly be eligible for promotions and pay raises. On average, high school graduates will earn $150 – $185 more per week than high school dropouts and students with a GED versus a diploma.
BENEFIT #3 – College & Career Ready
A full high school diploma opens the door to many opportunities. Should you choose to further your education at a two-year or four-year university, a community college, online university, technical program, or join the military, you must have a high school diploma (a GED provides fewer and more limited options). By advancing to a college or career training education, you will have the opportunity for jobs that have higher salaries and competitive benefit packages.
BENEFIT #4 – Pride
Accomplishment equals motivation. The more you accomplish, the more motivated you are to excel, learn, achieve and grow as a person. New opportunities will be presented to you the further you go with your education – places and jobs you couldn’t even dream of without your high school diploma. Confidence and self-esteem are linked with your education level. You will be a positive role model for your children, your peers, your siblings. Graduating with a high school diploma is a major achievement – take pride in knowing you set your eyes on the prize and you did it!
Ticket to ride! There are many benefits of having a high school diploma versus completing a GED, they include higher wages and college opportunities!

There are so many more doors that have been opened for each and every one of us because we were given a second chance at getting our diplomas, when we thought that dropping out was our only option.
