Career Online High School

Your Easy On-Ramp Back to High School

We’re pleased to offer adult learners a free way to earn a high school diploma.

We’re offering full scholarships to Career Online High School (COHS). All you need is to be 21 or older and have a valid Carol Stream Library card. (If you are a Carol Stream resident without a card, don’t worry—we can help.)

What is COHS?

  • COHS is a fully-accredited, legitimate online high school—NOT a diploma mill.
  • Free?? Yes, FREE! Full scholarships are available to qualified applicants. You will not be required to purchase textbooks.
  • Start school when you are ready, and learn on your own schedule. As long as you have 8-10 hours to dedicate to your schoolwork, COHS lets you work at your own pace.
  • Graduates earn a diploma, not a G.E.D. People with high school diplomas earn more money than those with a G.E.D., and they’re more likely to have a full-time job. With a high school diploma, you can pursue higher education, trade school, or a career in the military. COHS may count towards the work requirements for T.A.N.F. (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families)

We want to answer your questions

Are you ready to take a step towards a brighter future?

Thank you

The Library is offering these scholarships in partnership with the Friends of the Carol Stream Public Library; the Reaching Across Illinois Library System; and Smart Horizons.
