Applicants who successfully complete the online “Are You Ready?” survey, a prerequisite course, and an in-person interview will be considered for enrollment. Choose a major from one of the following career fields:

Once enrolled, 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 resources needed to master the courses. 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.
