Ogden – Stevens-Henager College has launched a new accredited high school diploma program as part of its Good Neighbor Initiative. Career Online High School (COHS) is available at Stevens-Henager College’s Ogden, Utah campus and is designed for students seeking an accredited high school diploma.
The program is offered in partnership with Smart Horizons Career Online Education (SHCOE) and ed2go. SHCOE and its Career Online High School Division is a private school district that has been granted district accreditation from the Advanced Accreditation Commission. Ed2go is a network of colleges, universities and other organizations that provides the portal for online learning.
“We recognize the enduring need in our community to curb the high school dropout rate,” said Vicky Dewsnup, president of Stevens-Henager College and regional director for Stevens-Henager campuses in Northern Utah and Idaho. “A high school diploma opens the door to ongoing educational opportunities and we want to see more students graduate from high school, attend college and secure higher paying jobs.”
COHS will be made available in special learning labs set up on CEHE campuses. These hybrid learning environments, which marry onsite and online support, will be staffed by facilitators and will enable COHS students to experience a college campus environment. “COHS is designed to support students as they return to their high school education. We anticipate meeting students who have been out of high school for a little as a year to as long as 50 years,” said Dewsnup.
