Career Online High School Scholarships Are Available!
Learning Connection: Sep/Oct 2018
Carlsbad City Library is excited to offer the Career Online High School (COHS) program from Gale Cengage! It is a fully accredited program that allows adults to complete their high school diploma, while also developing career skills in a field of their choice. It’s flexible and convenient, because students can work at their own pace and around their individual schedules.
How do I qualify?
You must be at least 19 years of age or older and have not completed high school.
Is there any cost? How can I get a scholarship?
We award tuition scholarships to applicants on a limited basis. You must first complete a self assessment and a prerequisite course online, then attend an in-person interview at the Library Learning Center to make sure you are a good fit for the program.
What happens after the interview?
Once you have been awarded a scholarship, you will enroll in the high school diploma and career certificate program. Upon completion, you will be invited to participate in the COHS graduation ceremony!
What are the subjects?
English, Mathematics, Social
Studies and Science. Career certificates can be earned in one of ten fields.
How long does it take?
The time limit to complete COHS is 18 months, but you may be able to complete the program in less time, if you transfer credits from existing high school transcripts.
Do I get a high school diploma?
Do I get a career certificate?
Yes! Upon completion of COHS, you will be awarded an accredited high school diploma AND a career certificate.
What if I don’t have a computer?
Carlsbad Library offers free computer use at all three sites with your Carlsbad City Library card.
COHS is not limited to learners in our literacy program, so if you know anyone in the community who would like to earn their diploma, please send them our way!
Get started by completing a brief online self-assessment at gale.com/cadiploma.
