Career Online High School allows libraries to offer adults in their community the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and career certificate. Register now to hear what all the fuss is about!

During this event, you will:

  • Learn why libraries are the perfect space for this online high school completion program.
  • See how Career Online High School engages adults back into the educational system and by doing so, helps your library fulfill its mission to improve lives and move your community forward.
  • Hear from John Szabo, City Librarian, Los Angeles Public Library speak about why they're offering COHS and provide details about their program implementation.
  • Listen to COHS alumna Deanna Boersma tell her story on how earning her accredited high school diploma and career certificate changed her life.

More than 40 million Americans lack a high school diploma. Learn how your library can play a crucial role in addressing this educational crisis and creating meaningful outcomes, such as improved quality of life and economic growth for your community.
