There is no question that the cost of college is a huge deciding factor in choosing where to go. 4/10 of high schoolers believe it to be the "most important" factor. It turns out that 38% of these students and 1/4 of parents think that one year of college will cost $5,000 or less.
Aside from money being a major detractor, some high schoolers don't feel drawn toward continuing their education. Some prefer to go straight into the workforce. The good news is that there are alternatives to college including jobs that only require a high school diploma.
You may be surprised at what these non-degree professions are. Many of which are very fulfilling and lucrative. Read our post below to see what they are.
Did you know that 86% of high schoolers in the United States graduate with a diploma within four years? This means there are plenty of people each year who receive a high school diploma.
