    Hi lilphilog! Welcome to DegreeInfo. We'll be glad to share all we know with you (and even a few things we don't know!)

    I think this is the same online high school that is in the links that show up in your post automatically. But, if not, here is one:

    Also, here is a thread about Continental Academy http://forums.degreeinfo.com/off-top...l-academy.html

    I understand they offer a diploma in just a few weeks, is that right? Quick and easy diplomas and degrees are one of the earmarks of a diploma mill. It doesn't bode well for the school.

    This is the best advice. I'm sure you could get one on Amazon used pretty cheap.

    The correct title is:
    Complete Guide to Online High Schools
    by Thomas Nixon
    ISBN 13: 978-0-9764716

    Maybe you can find it thru your local library - you can search for a library on Google Books (you also read several pages on this site):
    Complete Guide to Online High ... - Google Books

    John Bear's books are also listed on this site.

    Glad we could help. Be careful that the school you choose has a legitimate accreditation; there are some fake accreditations out there. If you have questions, post them here.

    Take the GED exam. With a little study, who knows you may just pass! Good luck!

    GED Prep

    If you decide to take the GED, you can prepare for it by using the InstantCert service, which is inexpensive. I subscribed some years back to study for CLEP and DANTES tests. It is all done online, and the method worked for me.

    Depends a lot on what you're doing after high school also. If you're going on to college, then the GED will allow you to start community college. If you're going just into employment without college, having a high school diploma looks marginally better to some employers.

    You might also take a quick look at k12.com. They are a private company that partners with school systems all over the US, and in a number of areas they offer free online schooling funded by public school funds.

    I think a GED is a much more practical choice for you. Consider that.
