Career Online High School

Earn your private high school diploma and become career ready

Resuming July 2018, Hialeah Public Libraries' Career Online High School (COHS) will offer adults the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and a career certificate online.

The library's program provides a limited number of scholarships to qualified students who are looking to advance their careers, and prepare for workforce entry or continue their education.

About the Program

Once enrolled, COHS pairs each student with an online academic coach, who:

  • Connects the student with resources needed to master the courses 
  • Evaluates performance
  • Offers ongoing guidance
  • Provides the student with an individual career path

A student can complete the program in as little as five months but is given up to 18 months if needed. Students are expected to spend 8 to 10 hours per week on COHS.
