L.E.A.P. Forward into Future Success: Get the Most Out of General Education

Ever wonder about the value of a college education?

Compared to high school graduates, COLLEGE GRADUATES
HAVE MANY MORE ADVANTAGES in their lives:

Some are economic advantages, like

  • Higher Salaries and Benefits

  • Higher Savings Levels

  • Improved Working Conditions

  • Personal/Professional Mobility

 

Consider the average annual earnings for someone who earns a degree:

  • High School only: $27,260

  • Associate's Degree: $31,684

  • Bachelor's Degree: $53,043

But the ADVANTAGES EXTEND FAR BEYOND ECONOMICS!

  • Improved Health and Living Longer

  • Improved Quality of Life for their Offspring

  • Better Consumer Decision Making

  • Increased Personal Status

  • More Hobbies and Leisure Activities
