In 2009, nearly 1.3 million high school seniors did not graduate..
Dropouts from the class of 2009 alone will cost the nation nearly $335 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivity over their lifetimes.
The nation would save more than $17 billion in health care costs over the lifetimes of each class of dropouts had they earned their diplomas.
If all students in the United States graduated from their high school, the nation would save almost $1.4 billion a year in community college remediation costs and lost earnings.
The nation’s economy would see a combination of crime-related savings and additional revenue of about $8 billion each year if the male high school graduation rate alone increased by just 5%.
Our mission is to transform lives and have a positive social impact by allowing students to graduate from high school on time. We provide an alternative to students to complete their high school educations. We are an online transfer credit program helping students in need.
A High School Diploma: No economic stimulus can beat that!
