High School Graduation : Taking The Next Step
Why Is It Important?
Landing a quality or successful career without a high school diploma or GED is extremely difficult. High school dropouts are 4x more likely to be unemployed as those who have completed 4 years of college. ACT scores also plays a role in determining the future of a high school student. Colleges use the ACT to determine a student’s academic preparedness for postsecondary education. The 21st Century global economy demands education beyond high school, whether it is a high-skilled certification, a 2-year or 4-year degree. Students, families and teachers must have access to college and career information and support and financial barriers must be eliminated.
