Is a high school diploma a GED®?

No, a high school diploma is not the same as a GED® certificate. They are two different credentials earned through different educational pathways. A GED® certificate is an alternative option for individuals who did not complete a traditional high school program but still wish to obtain an equivalent credential. The GED® is obtained by passing a series of tests that assess a person’s knowledge and skills in subjects typically covered in high school, such as mathematics, science, language arts, and social studies. It serves as a credential equivalent to a high school diploma and can be used for further education or employment opportunities.

Why is a high school diploma important?

A high school diploma is important for several reasons, as it serves as a critical milestone in a person’s education and has significant implications for their future personal and professional life. Completing high school creates a steppingstone for a person’s educational and professional future. At Broward Community Schools, you have the option to complete your high school diploma in an alternative setting allowing you the flexibility needed to be successful.

What jobs can I get with a high school diploma?

With a high school diploma, individuals can access a range of entry-level positions across various industries. Common job opportunities include administrative assistants, customer service representatives, retail sales associates, data entry clerks, security guards, and delivery drivers. These roles typically require basic communication and organizational skills, and while they may not have high earning potential initially, they can serve as steppingstones for career advancement through further education or on-the-job experience. Additionally, some industries offer apprenticeships or on-the-job training, enabling individuals to acquire specialized skills and progress in their chosen fields.
