Citizens’ High School, Jacksonville:
Earn your high school diploma from home, or enroll in one of our other accredited home study correspondence courses. Citizens' High School provides quality coursework for students to earn an actual high school diploma, not a General Education Development (GED) Certificate, from an Accredited High School Program. The School was founded in 1981 and is based in Orange Park, Clay County FL. We are not a diploma mill – we are a respected and accredited high school just like any other, only we deal with our students online, and take on as many mature aged students as we do teenagers.

- Individualized Instruction
Citizens' program is individualized instruction utilizing home study for communication between the school and the student. Upon receipt of the enrollment agreement and tuition, the first course material is sent including special instructions on how to begin and other necessary information.
- Flexible Study Options
Each student studies at his or her own pace. Within each course, self-check exercises allow the student to check what they have learned. Special forms are provided to the student to use to write to their teacher when extra help is needed with a subject, or the student may call the school at any time with their questions or concerns.
- Structured Examinations
The study guides sent with each course also include the course examinations which are completed on the open book principle. When the student feels ready, he or she takes an examination for a unit of lessons completed and mails it to CHS for grading by a qualified teacher. At the school, the teacher personally corrects the exam, adding helpful comments and suggestions if needed.
- Accredited Qualification
After recording the student's passing grade, the school then mails the exam back to the student. When a student finishes a subject, he or she will receive a Certificate of Completion and a grade report. Finally, after completing the subjects needed, the proud moment arrives – the student is awarded a high school diploma!
