Career Online High School is an AdvancED/SACS/NCA/NWAC-accredited program that enables students to earn their high school diplomas while gaining real-world career skills.
More effective than the GED in student outcomes and graduation rates, the program increases student and employee retention. Learn about our partnership programs.
The program is designed to help students be successful on the job or in postsecondary institutions, teaching skills and knowledge needed in school and the workplace.
Students earn a certificate in high-growth/high-demand career fields at the same time they earn their high school diplomas.
Our accreditation is internationally recognized so students earning credits from our school may transfer those credits to any other school.
As part of our Archways to Opportunity education strategy, we are pleased to be working with Cengage Learning's Career Online High School to make a high school diploma possible for our people--along with our other robust education and life skills building opportunities.

Cengage, ed2go, and Smart Horizons' team have been dynamic to work with from the very beginning. They provided in-depth training, meaningful data, excellent communication, prompt responses, marketing materials, and are very engaged with our success of the program....I highly recommend them. Their service is top-notch and expeditious. Their teams are very knowledgeable and experienced."

The program allowed me to get the education I needed to pursue the job that I always wanted and set me up for success. I was finally able to answer 'yes' on a job application when they asked if I graduated high school. As a result of my diploma, I was able to earn more money, get good benefits, and buy a house.
A Pitt alumnus, Richard Goldman, has worked with others to develop an online adult high school that is beginning to at least repair some of the damage that results in dropouts and inadequate adult literacy. The experience of Career Online High School that he helped create provides some real hope.

I really enjoyed the program and its life lessons. Young people should know to never give up on their dreams. With Career Online High School, there's always going to be someone there to help you.
