Earn Your High School Diploma in Chicago

Earn your online high school diploma in Chicago and join over 60,000 other students across the world who’ve taken their first step toward the future they want. With an increase in open jobs in the government, education, trade, and construction industries, now is the perfect time to start your career journey.

Since the end of 2015, the city of Chicago has been struggling to keep up with the employment trends of the rest of the country. While the change in employment rate for the nation has increased 2%, that of greater Chicago has only improved by 0.8%.¹ Lack of accessible education is surely a factor in the static job market, which is why Penn Foster is proud to offer an online high school degree to help Chicago residents grow their resumes and become competitive candidates. With a high school degree, Chicago residents earn $6,000² more annually on average than employees without a high school degree. Earning your high school diploma will not only increase your salary, but help you invest in your future.
