We’ve posted in the past about advanced learning opportunities for older adults, but not everyone is ready for them. Some adults missed the opportunity to complete high school and would like to change that situation. Fortunately, the Los Angeles Public Library has partnered with Gale/Cengage to offer grants so adult learners can obtain a free high school diploma and career certificate with Career Online High School. The program is for adults 19 or older who live in or work for the City of Los Angeles.
To get started, answer a few online questions to see if the program is right for you. You do not need to be a U.S. Citizen or provide transcripts to get started. After completing the self-assessment you can register for a pre-requisite course.
For more information about how you can qualify for a free grant, read the Career Online High School FAQ or the Los Angeles Public Library student recruitment website. You can also contact the Office of Education and Literacy at 213-228-7540 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
