Career Online High School (COHS)

Career Online High School

Program Overview

North Miami (NoMi) Public Library now offers a Career Online High School (COHS) Program! This program offers North Miami's adult residents, ages 19 and older, the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and Career Certificate online.

The NoMi Library Program provides a limited number of full scholarships for free to qualified adult learners seeking to advance their careers, prepare for workforce entry and continue their education. Applicants who successfully complete the online self-assessment will be prompted to begin the pre-requisite course. Those who pass the pre-requisite course with a 70% or higher will be contacted for an in person interview at the North Miami Library for scholarship consideration. The NoMi Library's goal is to award scholarships to all qualified applicants.

Curriculum

Once enrolled, COHS pairs each student with an Online Academic Coach, who will help identify the student's individual career path, offers on-going guidance, evaluates performance and connects the student with the resources needed to master each course. Students will be given up to 18 months to complete the program.

Core Courses include English, Math, Social Studies and Science. Additionally, students will choose supplemental courses from COHS's available high-growth, high-demand career fields and complete coursework to develop the skills and knowledge that potential employers look for.
