Launched by SHCOE and ed2go in May of 2012, Bridge to Start program at Career Online High School provides a fast-track, AdvancED/SACS-accredited, online high school program that is specifically designed to re-engage students back into the educational system. The program allows students to earn the high school diploma required for entry into colleges and post-secondary career training institutions.
