Not every high school graduate is ready for or interested in pursuing a four-year college degree. Choices for the High School Graduate, Fifth Edition presents students with a wide range of options available to them during and after high school—from early college admissions and entering a trade to joining the military and volunteering abroad. This revised edition provides new interviews and updated information that reflect the ever-changing economy and technology. An all-new chapter devoted to the Job Corps has also been added.

Chapters allow students to examine who they are and what they really want to do with their lives. Interviews with young people who have ventured off the beaten path provide insight into the many options available to today’s young people. Designed as a guide for parents and graduates, this book includes a section, “For Parents Only,” that provides the essential information parents need to help their children make informed choices.
