Career Online High School is an exciting program that allows students to earn an accredited high school diploma with an attached career certificate. Kansas City Public Library, Mid-Continent Public Library, and Literacy KC joined together to bring this program to the metro in January 2016, and the demand and community response has been overwhelming. Now even the busiest of students can obtain a high school diploma with the convenient any-time, any-where web learning platform and additional support from an academic coach.

In addition to a high school diploma, students will also navigate a career track, earning a certificate in one of the following areas:

  • Childcare and Education
  • Certified Protection Officer (Security Officer)
  • Office Management
  • Certified Transportation Services (Trucker/Commercial Driver)
  • Homeland Security
  • General Career Preparation
  • Retail Customer Service Skills
  • Food Service and Customer Service Skills

“I feel like this is going to really help me. You’ve saved two years of my life. I was going to have to wait for a better job before I could even try to get my HiSET or go back to school. My ultimate goal is to be a social worker.”
