Did you know Nicholas Cage has a GED? So does Eminem. Michael J. Fox has one, too. He has a new TV show starting this fall. There are a lot of very successful people who dropped out of high school for a variety of good reasons, later earned a GED, and went on to do some pretty great stuff.

Mary Lou Retton has one. Remember the Olympian? So does Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's.

If you dropped out of high school, it's never too late to earn your GED and do whatever you dream of.
