COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A library card offers more than just a world of information, it now allows the opportunity for patrons in Colorado Springs to earn a high school diploma.

The Pikes Peak Library District in Colorado Springs recently launched an online high school available free of charge to qualified patrons 17 and up.

Career Online High School is offering the accredited high school diplomas and credentialed career certificates to patrons in the library’s service area.

In order to enroll, students must successfully pass an online self-assessment and prerequisite course. A determination will be made by the Library’s enrollment team.

Funding for the program partially comes from the library's foundation.
