    Those who have read only this thread should check out the other thread started by Rod. The most recent page as of today is at:

    Opinions about a New Online College with State Approval, but no Accreditation [yet].

    This is a thread which should be red from the most recent posts backwards. It will save you a lot of time.

    Now, I posit a question: If the college he founded, and of which he served as CEO, and which he announced in this unrelated thread will be closing, what does that say about his high school, discussed in this thread and sharing numerous personnel and so-called faculty? Seems to me that the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree, which does not reflect well on Excel High School. Recommendation: Avoid it like the plague.

    Actually, the college is not closing. The college will continue to operate as a private career college and will be seeking Regional accreditation within 24-months. Talk all of the trash you want, but you will see good things to come from Excel schools.

    I'm assuming that we are now talking about Excel Career Institute. No accreditation of any sort is mentioned although they are kind enough to add this:

    "Credits earned at the institution may not transfer to all other institutions."

    I think they spelled "any" incorrectly.

    It is accredited but there are many better choices available in USA. I would prefer "The Ogburn Online School" or "North Star Academy".

    Hi Sara - If you are referring to Excel Career Institute (referenced above) I'm afraid you'll have to provide evidence of this alleged accreditation. I have just reviewed their website again and there is no evidence of any accreditation by any organization.

    @Kizmet: I think Sara is referring to Excel High School, which, as we both know, is accredited. Why do I think so? She mentioned her preferences, Ogburn Online School and North Star Academy. Both are accredited schools which do not teach beyond Grade 12.
