Career Online High School

Redwood City Public Library, in partnership with the California State Library, Redwood City Library Foundation, and Gale, part of Cengage Learning, offers adults the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and career certificate online through Career Online High School.

The library's pilot program provides a limited number of scholarships to qualified adult learners who are looking to expand their career opportunities, prepare for workforce entry and continue their education.

Applicants who successfully complete an online self-assessment, complete a short pre-requisite in-take form, followed by an in-person interview, will be considered for enrollment. 

Once enrolled in the program, Career Online High School pairs each student with an online academic coach, who provides the student with an individual career path, offers ongoing guidance, evaluates performance and connects the student with the resources needed to master the courses. Students will be given up to 18 months to complete the program. Career Online High School. Learn more
