We’ll provide a course description that lists the concepts covered so you can easily incorporate it into your teen’s transcript.

As your teen completes the outlined coursework (see details in the chart), they will create a portfolio demonstrating what they have learned.

Most states require 60 hours of learning in order to award .5 credit in high school.  If your teen completes all of the tasks outlined in the course requirements, they should have enough hours to fulfill a half credit.


We know your family is busy and your teen has a lot of work to do to meet core high school requirements.  We’ve made sure this course will help your teen find a fulfilling career path without piling on more tough assignments.

Some simple writing tasks are included at the beginning and end of the course to give your teen insight into their unique strengths, interests, and values and to apply what they have learned to their plans for the future.  Important factors that contribute to career satisfaction and success are shared through videos.  Easy-to-use online assessments and tools will help your teen identify their own personality and preferences.  H4RL’s searchable online database makes it easy to explore a wide variety of careers.

We’ve made it easy for your teen to prepare for a great future while earning high school credit.  Discussing their progress and discoveries with you will be very important throughout the course as their understanding grows and they discover their ideal career!

I appreciate the thought and insight you put into your career classes. The information you give really helps inform the whole person with realistic expectations about the whole career, not just the 'fun' parts.

"The career course was very thorough, and gave me (unlike some other classes I've taken) a CLEAR plan/outline. I think it was very helpful and unique, and very thorough and very complete, following through to the end."
