Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
“We are excited to partner with Smart Horizons,” says Darcy Richardson, Division President of Anthem College Online. “Both our organizations want to offer adult learners the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and support their efforts. More adults realize that education is critical to getting a better life for themselves and their families. Anthem High School is one path they can use to begin working toward their educational and career goals.”
Students who are interested in learning basic workplace skills, such as Microsoft Office, communication, and time management, can work toward a Professional Skills Development Certificate while they earn their high school diploma.
Anthem High School graduates can continue their education through Anthem College Online, the online division of Anthem College-Phoenix, part of Anthem Education. It offers post-secondary education and training programs in the following fields:
- Accounting Technology
- Business Management
- Criminal Justice
- Health Information Management
- Healthcare Management
- Medical Assisting
- Medical Office Administration
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. Two programs―Healthcare Management and Medical Assisting―offer degree completion options as well.
SHCOE is the first online school district to receive accreditation from AdvancED/SACS. The organization shares many of the same goals as Anthem College Online, says SHCOE Board Chairman Richard Goldman, Ph.D. “Both of our organizations prepare students to succeed in their education and careers, and provide skilled employees. I believe that together, we can serve as a model to help improve the educational outlook for many people and maybe even help improve our economy.”
