Dedicated to student success
Smart Horizons Career Online High School (SHCOHS) is part of the world’s first AdvancED/SACS/NCA/NWAC-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 high-demand fields such as Home Care Professional (coming soon), Early Childhood Education, Retail Customer Service, Commercial Driving, Criminal Justice, Office Management, Food Services, Hospitality, and Homeland Security.
We are based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and also have an office in Pensacola, Florida.
