About Us

Dedicated to student success

Smart Horizons Career Online High School (SHCOHS) is part of the world’s first accredited private, national online school district. We offer affordable, career-based online high schools that serve adults and young adults who need high school diplomas in order to access better career and educational opportunities.

We started SHCOHS in 2009 to address the nation’s dropout crisis and reach the millions of Americans who lack high school diplomas. We believe that every student is capable of completing a high school education when they have a program designed to fit their needs—and that students deserve a program that is responsive to those needs. We provide students with the academic, career, technical, and overall support to be successful. In our program, “online” does not mean “alone,” and we are there for our students when they need assistance or support.

At SHCOHS, students earn both a high school diploma and a career-credentialed certificate aligned to workforce needs. We offer certificate programs in fields such as Home Care Professional, Early Childhood Education, Retail Customer Service, Commercial Driving, Security Services, Office Management, Food Services, and Hospitality.

We are based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and also have an office in Pensacola, Florida.


Smart Horizons Career Online Education is committed to preparing students for the workforce and post-secondary education by delivering innovative career-based education in a supportive, engaging environment.


To provide a pathway to future career or educational opportunities by reengaging individuals without a high school diploma back into the educational system.


Responsive. Supportive. Innovative. Transparent. Committed.
