Reaching higher

Your guide explains why education beyond high school is an investment in yourself.

OliviaIt’s so easy to complain about school. Just ask me, I’m an expert! But let’s talk about the positive: Education beyond high school can give you skills that you’ll use for the rest of your life, no matter where you live or what job you do. And more education may also help you earn a lot more money. So if you want to make more, or just to make more of yourself, think of education beyond high school as an investment in you. On the next few screens, we’ll show you how to make paying for it financially possible.

Everyone’s situation and goals in life are a little different. A college education can broaden your understanding of the world around you, but a four-year college degree may not be right for everyone. A community or junior college, trade school, or technical training are other options to consider.

Note: If you’re serious about getting more education, discuss it with your family. Having your family’s support, financial and otherwise, can be a major help to reaching your goal.
