Finish Your High School Diploma
With the new year, comes New Year’s resolutions. Popular picks include healthy eating, exercise, and money management. It’s also a great time to focus on advancing your education and career opportunities. San Mateo County Libraries offers a program called Career Online High School designed for adults who were unable to complete high school and could benefit from additional job training.
This nationally accredited program allows adult students to earn an accredited high school diploma—not a GED—while gaining career skills in one of ten employment fields across a wide spectrum, from home care professional and office management to homeland security. San Mateo County Libraries is currently seeking qualified residents to enroll in the free program.
Once in the program, students are assigned an academic coach who helps keep them on track and connects them with tutors if needed. The online curriculum is accessible 24/7, which is helpful to those balancing work and family obligations. Students are given up to 18 months to complete the program, but many finish sooner because previously earned high school credits may be transferred.
