If you’re nearing graduation or have just graduated from high school, you may be wondering what move to make next. There are lots of options to consider when it comes to continuing your education. Here are a few to keep in mind as you think about your future.

Consider a trade degree from a local college

Getting your associate's degree from a local two-year college can be a great way to build skills and find a great job in a short amount of time.

From trade schools that prepare you to become an electrician or plumber to automotive, diesel and collision repair academic programs, there are plenty of programs and schools to consider.

Take a coding boot camp

Are you interested in learning more about computer science and software development? A coding boot camp can be a great way for you to take a deep dive into the world of programming.

Many boot camps are available online and offer flexibility with your schedule; some even offer guaranteed jobs upon completion!

Find an apprenticeship or internship

Another option that will give you valuable on-the-job experience is an internship or apprenticeship.

Some programs are incredibly competitive; however, if you get accepted to a particular program, you can learn a wealth of things about some of the largest and most exciting businesses.

Continue your studies at a 4-year university

One of the most traditional paths for high school graduates is attending a 4-year university to receive a bachelor’s degree.

Bachelor’s degrees are increasingly important when it comes to finding a job, but it is important to realize that this isn’t the only option, just because it’s the most common.
You may think that after high school a traditional bachelor’s degree is the only option worth making; however, there are plenty of other paths to consider.

From apprenticeships and boot camps to trade schools and associate’s degree programs, as long as you are learning, there is value to the path you’re on after high school.
