Earn An Accredited High School Diploma Through Boca Raton Public Library’s Career Online High School

Boca Raton, FL – Boca Raton Public Library is offering community members an exciting new opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and credentialed career certificate through Career Online High School, a program brought to public libraries by Gale, a Cengage company. Part of the world’s first accredited, private online school district, Career Online High School is specifically designed to reengage adults, ages 19 and older, into the education system and prepare them for entry into post-secondary career education or the workforce.

“Earning a high school diploma is a life-changing achievement,” said Joleen Capella, Instructional Services Librarian. “By offering Career Online High School, we’re empowering our residents to seek new opportunities and transform their lives.”

“We’re delighted to partner with Boca Raton Public Library to offer Career Online High School and give residents access to education and the potential to change their lives,” said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager for Gale.

Boca Raton Public Library will award scholarships for Career Online High School to qualified learners seeking to earn a high school diploma and advance their careers. Once enrolled, Career Online High School pairs each student with an Academic Coach, who assists with developing an individual career plan, offers ongoing guidance and encouragement, evaluates performance, and connects the learner with the resources needed to demonstrate mastery of the course material. Classes are supported by board-certified instructors, and students have 24/7 access to the online learning platform. Coursework begins in one of eight high-growth, high-demand careers such as office management, commercial transportation, food and hospitality, and certified security officer, before progressing to the core academic subjects. Students are able to graduate in as few as six months by transferring in previously earned high school credits but are given up to 18 months to complete the program.
