NNPL Offering Scholarships

Earn your high school diploma online

Part of the world’s first accredited, private online school district, Career Online High School is specifically designed to reengage adults into the education system and prepare them for entry into post-secondary career education or the workforce. The program is designed for adults who didn’t complete high school and could benefit from additional job training.

This nationally accredited program allows adult students to earn an accredited high school diploma—not a GED—while gaining career skills in one of 10 employment fields across a wide spectrum, from home care professional and office management to homeland security. NNPL is currently seeking qualified Newport News residents, who are at least 19 years old, to apply for a fully-funded library scholarship.

Earning a high school diploma is a key stepping-stone to achieving long-term goals,” said Sonia Alcántara-Antoine, Newport News Public Library director. “By offering Career Online High School, we’re empowering our residents to seek new opportunities and transform their lives.

NNPL awards scholarships to a limited number of qualified adult learners. Although we would like to provide everyone an opportunity to continue with the Career Online High School program, grants are limited and successful completion of the prerequisite does not guarantee immediate availability.

Career Online High School is a great solution for those who need extra academic support and flexibility. Once in the program, students are assigned an academic coach who helps keep them on track and connects them with tutors if needed. The online curriculum is accessible 24/7, which is helpful to those balancing work and family obligations. Students are given up to 18 months to complete the program, but many finish in as few as three months because previously earned high school or GED test credits are accepted.

Learn more about by calling (757) 247-8677, emailing, or by visiting the library’s Career Online High School webpage.
