Education is a game changer.

Education is a game-changer and can open doors of opportunity for personal and career growth. That’s why we’ve partnered with Career Online High School, a fully accredited, highly supported program to give adults a second chance at their education.

How does it work?

COHS focuses on the real-world skills you need to succeed in the workplace today. In addition to a high school diploma, you earn a Career Certificate in your chosen career area.

Enroll in the Career Online High School program

You’ll choose one of 10 career tracks to complete. After selecting your track, you will enroll in the Pre-Requisite: Part 1 course for your selected career track. You will have 2 weeks to complete the course (after 2 weeks, your access to the course will expire).
