Studies show that each year over 1.2 million students drop out of high school. And high school graduates make on average $200,000 more in their lifetime than their non-graduate brethren (college graduates make on average $800,000 more than high school dropouts). Clearly high school graduation is still important and not guaranteed by any means. Graduation from high school means that your child or loved one will be entering into a new world whether it’s the work force, community college, a four-year college, or mission work. Giving your graduate the right graduation gift will prepare them for the road ahead and the new chapter in their life. Catholic graduation gifts remind your child of their life in Christ, and will help your child make Christ a part of life going forward. Here is a list of some of the most popular catholic graduation gifts.
