What are you going to do after High School?

By the time you graduate high school you will have completed 13 years of school. You will have at least 45 more years, probably more, before retirement. What are you going to do with those 45+ years?

Get a Job

Without any training, you will probably start out at minimum wage ($5.85 per hour.) That is less than $940.00 per month.

  • House or Apartment
  • Utilities (gas, electric, water, etc.)
  • Auto, gas, insurance, and maintenance
  • Groceries
  • Family
  • Health Insurance
  • Medical Expenses

These are just a few of the items it takes to live. Will you earn enough to survive, to have fun or to retire someday?

what are you going to do4
What are you going to do?


According to the National Assessment of Vocational Education (NAVE) report, that two-thirds of America’s young people do not obtain a four year degree and at least 25% of them go directly to work after high school. This means most students either, never attend college, or if they start college they’re not completing and obtaining a four year degree from college.

This leaves almost 67% of students that will not obtain at least a bachelor degree from college. You may need to ask yourself these questions.

  • Will I be one of the 67%?
  • What if I’m not interested in spending an additional 4+(probably more) years sitting in classroom listening to lectures?
  • Can I afford that many years of college?
  • What if I don’t want to spend the rest of my life after college behind a desk, pushing papers, taking telephone calls, or crunching numbers?
  • Is there any hope of doing something I enjoy and securing a successful career?
what alternatives are there

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, recognizes the problem our nation faces with students not graduating high school or going to college.
