Career Online HS

Earn your high school diploma online and expand your career opportunities! The Berwyn Public Library offers free enrollment to a limited number of adult learners to earn an accredited high school diploma and a career certificate.


About the Program

BPL's Career Online High School program awards scholarships to candidates who meet requirements and pass a prerequisite course and interview. Online courses are available 24/7, and you will spend at least 8-10 hours weekly on this self-paced program. An academic coach will offer guidance and support. The average completion time is 12 months. By transferring credits from previously completed accredited high school courses, you may shorten your completion time. This is not a GED program; upon successful completion, you will receive an accredited high school diploma.
