El Cajon, California - For many, high school graduation is a rite of passage, but sometimes circumstances prevent students from getting a diploma.

We talked with one man who, at the age of 56, is seeing his dream of earning a diploma come true thanks to the County Library and his hard work.

You can apply to Career Online High School over at the Library’s website. Enrollment is limited and the demand is expected to be high. Adults must successfully pass an online self-assessment and prerequisite course, as well as an in-person interview to become an applicant in the program.

For additional information, you can contact the El Cajon Library.
