Smart Horizons Career Online Education (SHCOE) and ed2go are pleased to announce that Allied Health Institute has become the newest partner to host Career Online High School. Allied Health Institute is a post-secondary school that offers a variety of degree and diploma programs through distance and blended education.

“We are pleased to expand the Career Online High School program to Allied Health Institute,” said Dr. Howard Liebman, CEO and Superintendent of SHCOE. “The program is a win-win for Allied Health Institute: students benefit from earning a diploma and career certificate, which positions them for enrollment in college, while Allied Health Institute is able to identify a new audience of potential students for whom enrolling in higher education programs was not previously an option.”

Launched by SHCOE in May of 2012, 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 enables students to earn the high school diploma required for entry into colleges and post-secondary career training institutions.

“Career Online High School provides many students with a terrific opportunity to gain the skills and education they need to succeed in the workplace,” said Ron Stefanski, Chief Business Development Officer of ed2go. “ed2go is extremely excited to partner with Allied Health Institute to expand opportunities for those needing high school diplomas to pursue their dreams of further education and career employment.”
