Anthem College Online, the online division of Anthem College-Phoenix, has taken a significant step forward to re-engage adult learners into the education process by partnering with Smart Horizons Career Online Education (SHCOE) to create Anthem High School.

“We are very excited to work with Smart Horizons Career Online Education in an effort to offer adult learners the opportunity to earn their high school diploma,” says Darcy Richardson, Division President for Anthem College Online. “During this difficult economic time, more and more adults are realizing that education is a critical component that can help them provide better lives for themselves and their families. It is exciting to provide students with another option to help them reach their educational and career goals―starting with Anthem High School.”

Anthem College Online offers programs in the following fields:

  •     Accounting Technology
  •     Business Management
  •     Criminal Justice
  •     Health Information Management
  •     Healthcare Management
  •     Medical Assisting

Depending on the program, students can earn an Associate of Science or Bachelor of Science degree, except for the Medical Office Administration program, which offers a Diploma only. The Healthcare Management program offers a Bachelor of Science degree completion option for students who already hold an associate’s degree, and the Medical Assisting program is an Associate of Science degree completion program for students who hold a Medical Assisting Diploma.

Anthem College Online is open to students in all states except Massachusetts and Arkansas.
