Earn a High School Diploma at the Library

“I can finally say “I did it.” I can finally say that I am a high school graduate. I can now move on to another chapter in my life. Because it is never too late for greatness. There is no age limit on success.” These are the words of Tabitha a 2019 graduate of Career Online High School through The Citrus County Library System.

This nationally accredited program allows adult students to earn an accredited high school diploma (not a GED) while gaining career skills from a selection of employment fields. The Citrus County Library System is currently seeking qualitied residents to enroll in this free program.

Citrus County Library System is excited to announce that it will begin awarding scholarships for Career Online High School September 27, 2021. Those interested in applying for a scholarship need to be 19 years of age or older, a resident of Citrus County, and they must have a Citrus County Library Card in good standing.  

Once enrolled, Career Online High School pairs each student with an Academic Coach, who assists with developing individual learning plans and 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. 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.

If you have been looking at completing your high school diploma, but didn’t know how to get started. This is how!
