Recent high school graduates realize the importance of a college degree
For any number of reasons, many students graduate from high school and never continue on to college. Some of these diploma holders do quite well without a degree, while others struggle to find work. Anybody who falls into the latter category may want to consider enrolling in a Christian university or college, as it is never too late for higher education.
If those who have earned a high school diploma alone need further proof that their lives would be better off with a bachelor’s degree under their belt, they may want to turn to the findings of a new report from Rutgers University’s John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development.
The authors of this report used data from 544 recent high school graduates from the classes of 2006-2011 to gain a sense of what life is like for these individuals. They found that only 30 percent of respondents believe it is possible to have a successful career with nothing more than a high school diploma. A total of 70 percent of graduates feel they require more education to accomplish their professional goals.
Whether students enroll in an online Christian university or an on-campus program, they have an opportunity to earn a degree that can help them advance their careers for many years to come.
