Answer 1: I personally don't think so and then there are others that there are reasons to think that they are so that there really is no right or wrong answer to this question . Answer 2: in Relation with the first answer... huh? I mean, I'm sorry, but... wh... what? [a rhetorical question]. Penn Foster high school is operated by Penn Foster College. Penn Foster College is one of the two major colleges of its type in the united States (the other is Ashworth College offers career certificates and diplomas, and also finished degrees in a number of areas of the race. Penn Foster College and Ashworth College both advertise on daytime television (when they know that the unemployed are sitting at home) the advertising of her career degrees and diplomas. When you enroll in one of them, you feel a bit like you're shopping at Walmart.... ...that does not mean that their titles are bad. It just means that they sort of treat their students a little bit like cattle, and only want to push 'em through their systems as quickly and cheaply as possible.. But that doesn't mean they're degree mills, or anything. They are very credible, and academically rigorous; but they're definitely career schools intent on enrolling as many people as possible, gettin' 'em through as fast as possible, and charging little enough for that unemployed people watching TV at home in the days of the week is going to be able to pay.. Penn Foster College and Ashworth College are "nationally" accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC), that is an accreditor approved by the Department of Education (USDE) and the USDE-sanctioned Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Therefore, its degrees are legal in all states, good for employers, etc, Nothing wrong, no. However, according to both the school feels... well... again, a bit like going shopping in Walmart. I've even been known to joke that those two colleges, while accredited and credible and all that, however, are the sort of "Walmarts" of highe education.. Well, so, then, armed with this knowledge, you can imagine that going to Penn Foster high School is very much the same. And you'd be right. Don't get me wrong, Penn Foster High Scholl is excellent; and it is in fact a little less like shopping at Walmart than going to Penn Foster College. But, it is a bit of an assembly-line type of experience. Some students like that because it is no nonsense; and others need a little more help and assistance of this type of system is equipped to provide. However, both Penn Foster high School and Ashworth College James Madison high School, have a lot of people available to provide "hand holding," if that is what the student needs. One simply has to be firm in asking for it, and insisted that one gets.. Penn Foster high School, and Ashworth's James Madison High School, although, in reality they have a better kind of accreditation your school owners. Penn Foster and James Madison are "regional" (as opposed to "nationally" accredited by one of the six big USDE-approved "regional" accreditors. Despite the "national" accreditation (in addition to the "regional", of course) is okay at the college level.... ...only "regional" accreditation will do at the high school level. Most employers, most colleges/universities, most government agencies (including the military) prefer to (and some of them only accept) high school diplomas "regional" accredited high schools. "Nationally" accredited high school diploma has little or no real value in the real world. Avoid them.. That said, Penn Foster and Ashworth's James Madison high schools also have "national" accreditation, just like their owner colleges. But because they also have "regional" accreditation, their "national" accreditation may just be ignored.. So, the bottom line is that Penn Foster high School (and its chief competitor, Ashworth College's James Madison High School) have the highest and best possible accreditation, and they are both at a reasonable price. However, if a student needs excessive help and hand-holding, said the student may need to be very insistent on getting it before the school will assign someone to provide the kind of help they really need. But them, and they do not make you feel bad about asking for it; but I'm just saying that it is configured to only push kids through, and not very slow down and help them a lot.. If that is ok with you, then by all means enroll in Penn Foster (or James Madison) high school. Both are excellent; and their diplomas will be accepted anywhere and everywhere that a high school diploma is required!. Therefore, there are! How's that for an opinion? It turns out that the first answerer, then, was wrong, eh? (That is to say, assuming that one can even imagine what, precisely, s/he was saying.) [smile].
