One of these high school graduates may earn $1 million more than the other

You may be asking yourself, how can one high school graduate possibly earn $1 million more than the other? It's actually pretty simple. Some high school graduates go on to college while others do not. It is well documented that the difference between what high school and college graduates can earn over a lifetime can be $1 million or more.*

Depending on the major you choose, the earnings difference can be even more drastic. For example, some STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) career tracks can possibly earn up to $3.4 million more.*
