    How a GED Class Can Help You

    Getting a GED can help you for the rest of your life. It can also help your family, your partner, and your future children. Here are five powerful reasons to get your GED now:

    • Career Prospects: The job market has changed over the years. These days, most employers will not hire anyone who does not have either a high school diploma or GED. Getting your GED will open up job opportunities for you, which can lead to further career prospects. 
    • Higher Earnings: As a rule, people who have their GED (or their high school diploma) tend to have much higher earnings than those who do not graduate high school. A study by the National Center for Education Statistics indicated a difference of more than $6,800 per year in average earnings between non-graduates and those who graduated or had gotten a GED. 
    • Educational Options: Getting your GED can open up options for other studies and educational goals. Most colleges require a GED to enroll; if you're interested in specific career steps, a GED will open those doors for you. 
    • Other Options: While your military career opportunities are limited when you have only a GED, having your GED makes it possible to take classes that expand your options. You can also enroll in trade school with a GED.
    • Self-Satisfaction: The skills you learn when studying for your GED make it possible for you to be successful elsewhere. Your self-confidence grows, you begin to make career plans, and take steps to achieve your goals. You will also become an example for younger family members and friends.
