Centennial High School offers a fast, affordable high school diploma program that can be completed online and that is accepted by many companies who require their employees to have a high school diploma or GED.
According to the 1999 Current Population Survey of the United States Census, a staggering 55% of individuals at least 25 years old who failed to complete high school or receive a GED reported no earnings for the year. This compares to 25% of those 25 years or older with at least a high school diploma or GED who failed to report earnings for the year.
Furthermore, for those who reported earnings in 1999, the median income for individuals who did not complete their high school diploma or GED was $15,334, compared to a median income of $29,294 for those with at least a high school diploma or GED.
One of the main reasons for this large discrepancy is that it is becoming standard practice for companies to require all of their employees to have at least a high school diploma or GED. Individuals who did not finish high school or receive a GED are thus not eligible for a large number of jobs in today's job market.
Centennial High School's high school diploma online program was designed specifically for this problem. It is fast and affordable, and the Centennial High School diploma is recognized by many companies. Graduates of the program are able to quickly earn their diploma and begin applying for jobs or positions that were previously beyond their reach.
Students in the program take a 4-part high school equivalency test and complete an enrollment application. Once they have passed the test and completed their enrollment application, they can order a high school diploma graduation package from Centennial High School.
The high school diploma graduation package includes a high school diploma from Centennial High School, plus transcripts based on the high school equivalency test taken earlier. It also includes free ongoing employer verification, which means employers can call the Centennial High School registrar and verify that a student has graduated from the program.
The entire high school diploma program can be completed from any computer with Internet access, and each student can complete the program at their own pace. Motivated students can typically complete the entire program and receive their high school diploma within 5 days or less.
A high school diploma from Centennial High School currently costs $219.00 plus shipping. However, students can sign up for the program, take the equivalency test and complete their enrollment application for free. Students do not pay anything until they have completed the program and are ready to order a high school diploma graduation package.
