Career Online High School
In partnership with the California State Library, the Inglewood Public Libraries offers individuals the opportunity to earn a free accredited high school diploma through Career Online High School. As part of the program, students also earn a career certificate in one of 10 chosen fields.
Career Online High School offers individualized support from certified instructors and academic coaches who can assist students every step of the way. Courses are entirely web-based and provide students with the flexibility of 24/7 access to the online learning platform.
Students have up to 18 months to complete the program. Still, it may be possible for you to transfer credits from previously completed accredited high school courses, shortening your completion time to as few as five months.
To be eligible for this program, applicants must:
- Be age 19 or over
- Be a resident of Inglewood (a limited number of scholarships have been allotted for non-residents)
- Have a library account in good standing. If you do not have an Inglewood library card, you may apply for one at any Inglewood Public Library location.
How it Works:
Step 1: Take the Are You Ready? Survey.
Step 2: Once you complete the survey, you’ll be invited to enroll in and complete a prerequisite course in two weeks or less.
Step 3: A library staff member will reach out to you to discuss your scholarship only after completing the required prerequisite course.
Now is your time! Your high school diploma opens the door to opportunities for higher education, a better job or promotion, increased self-confidence, and higher pay. Get started today!
