A high school diploma opens the door to many exciting new options. These might include a first full-time job, or part-time or full-time attendance at a technical school, community college, or university. Students might want to obtain a certificate, an associate degree, or a diploma. With so many choices, it can be a challenge to decide which path to take. It is important to explore all the work and education options available upon graduation and beyond. High school students are reminded that they can return to school many times as their interests and goals change or as new employment opportunities become available. This information sheet offers some ideas and choices for students to consider before they graduate. A list of resources is also provided.
