Library Director Hope Cain proudly announces that Sulphur Springs is one of five Texas city library systems which have launched the “Career Online High School” opportunity today, September 15, 2017.  Sulphur Springs joins Dallas, Houston, Grapevine and Frisco in offering the unique scholarship opportunity. Persons who qualify for the year-long course of study can complete their high school education and gain career training through a self-paced online program.

Not a GED course, the new program is a path to earn an accredited high school diploma and career certificate through the Cengage Company. Scholarships which cover costs are available through public libraries. According to Ms. Cain, preparation for the exciting program launch followed a year of  research  study on her part. She is thrilled that a “second chance” for an education is available to persons who may have dropped out of high school earlier in their life.

A “graduation day” in cap and gown and photo opportunity with scholarship sponsor will be provided for those who successfully complete the program. Anyone interested in details is asked to go to careeronlinehs.gale.com/tx
