ed2go, part of Cengage Learning and a leading provider of turnkey online training and education solutions, in partnership with Smart Horizons Career Online Education (SHCOE), the world’s first AdvancED/SACS accredited online school district, has announced the launch of a new summer school credit recovery program for high school students looking to make up credits or retake courses to improve their grade point average (GPA).
