The Career Online High School Pilot Program

To be considered for the program, applicants will successfully complete an online self-assessment and prerequisite course, followed by an in-person interview. 


Once enrolled in the program, COHS 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.
