    Could't get to read it. That site was swathed in mandatory "surveys" and logins, passwords etc. Here's one that isn't.

    Bright Rock Christian Academy ordered to stop offering diplomas - News - Dover Post - Dover, DE

    Seems they were issuing unqualified High School Diplomas. Bad! Bad! Most Un-Christian!! I think God should punish them, but He probably has much else to do. Up to the Courts - they have the powa!

    Thanks Kizmet - I shared it in my Delaware group. Programs like that sometimes go after homeschooling families to offer diplomas and GEDs. Though parent-issued homeschool diplomas are legal in all 50 states, parents are still fearful and can fall victim to programs like this. Thanks!

    Unfortunate, but true. I maintain a list of non-accepted "high schools" with about 160 entries. Most of these are: 1) pay a fee (usually $200, sometimes more); 2) take an online "test" that is impossible to fail and 3) download your diploma (or have it sent via mail).
