Career Online High School program available for FREE to community members

Want more than a GED? Earn your high school diploma and career certificate from Bemis Library!

Bemis Public Library is offering qualified community members the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma with a credentialed career certificate in a high-growth, high-demand field ranging from child care/education to commercial driving to homeland security.

No cost to students
Bemis Library will award 27 scholarships for the Career Online High School to qualified community members looking to earn a high school diploma and advance their careers.  “Earning a high school diploma is a life-changing achievement,” said Tim Nimz, Littleton’s Library/Museum Director. “By offering scholarships for the Career Online High School, we’re empowering our residents to seek new opportunities and transform their lives.”

Fully accredited
Part of the world’s first accredited, private online school district, Career Online High School is specifically designed to reengage adults into the education system and prepare them for entry into post-secondary career education or the workforce.

Career Online High School is a program brought to public libraries by Gale, a Cengage company. "We’re delighted to partner with Bemis Public Library to offer Career Online High School and give residents access to education and the potential to change their lives,” said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager for Gale.

Once enrolled, Career Online High School pairs each student with an Academic Coach, who assists with developing an individual career plan, offers ongoing guidance and encouragement, evaluates performance, and connects the student 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.

Flexible timetable
Coursework begins in one of eight career fields before progressing to the core academic subjects. Students are able to graduate in as few as six months by transferring previously-earned high school credits, but have up to 18 months to complete the program.
