Today, nearly 40 million adults lack their high school diploma. Career Online High School, part of the world’s first accredited private online school district, can help these students realize their education and career goals. Your library can play a key role in reengaging adults into the education system. Along with academic coaches, certified teachers and technical support staff, help students realize their maximum potential.

Grand County Library District recently graduated their first Career Online High School student, Malynn Glass, a mother of a toddler with another on the way, who dropped out of high school due to family issues and trouble transferring credits.

“I feel really good about it, I feel like it is a step towards what I want to accomplish with my future. Now that I have a high school diploma, I can go to college.”

—Maylnn Glass

Glass is the program’s first Grand County graduate, though seven others are nearing completion. The district plans to hold a graduation ceremony in January.
