 The High School: Learning More

Learning After High School

It’s hard to get a great job when you have only a high school diploma. It’s not impossible –- and it’s definitely nothing to feel bad about or be ashamed of. But if you get more schooling and more training, you will probably have a much better chance of getting a job you really want. It will also help you achieve all those other things you want, like having an apartment or a home of your own, buying a car, traveling, and things like that.

Postsecondary education (or more school) is a fancy way of talking about learning information and skills in a classroom (college, technical college, community college, art school, specialty school). These skills will help you to have a job in the future -- and eventually a career -- that you will be happy with.

But how much do you really know about postsecondary education? And do you know where to go for college or more school?
