Why does a College Degree Matter?

The average American with a four-year bachelor’s degree earns an average of $1 million dollars more during their lifetime than a person whose highest education level is a high school diploma. As America’s population grows the high-paying jobs of the future will require a high level of education and it is vital for every American student to achieve this goal. Wallace Stegner Academy prepares students for their future college studies and for the jobs of the future.
