City Library Announces Third Graduate of Career Online High School Program

Padma Jadunandan to be Recognized at the City Commission Meeting on December 19

Boynton Beach resident Padma Jadunandan received her high school diploma on November 4, 2017, becoming the City Library’s third graduate of its Career Online High School (COHS) program. Mayor Steven B. Grant and other city dignitaries will present congratulatory remarks and an award to Ms. Jadunandan at the Commission meeting December 19, City Hall, 6:30 p.m. 

COHS is an accredited online private high school program that allows students aged 19 or older to earn high school diplomas while gaining real-world career skills.  

"I am so thankful to the fantastic library staff who guided me along this program and enabled me to not only graduate, but to earn a 4.0 GPA,” said Padma Jadunandan. “COHS’ online learning experience afforded me the convenience and balance I needed to stay focused and complete the program within the one year time frame I set for myself, while balancing the rest of my life responsibilities.” 

Padma had applied for, and received, a full scholarship to the program.  The City Library, in partnership with Gale, a part of Cengage Learning and the State of Florida, is one of just three libraries in the state to offer this program. They currently have five scholarships available for other qualified learners. Residents can find out more about the program at the Boynton Beach City Library, 208 S. Seacrest Blvd., Boynton Beach, or by visiting the library’s website at
