    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:

    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.

    Online High Schools

    I would recommend one of the programs offered at state universities - they are non-profit, accredited and affiliated with a campus (which helps in perception).

    The University of Oklahoma High School OU High School

    University of Missouri High School High School Credits | Online high School Diploma | MU High School

    University of Nebraska-Lincoln Independent Study High School Online High School, Home School Program, U. Of Nebraska: Home

    North Dakota Center for Distance Education Plans of Study | ND Center for Distance Education

    There are also many similar programs that offer distance learning (online or correspondence/mail) high school courses that will transfer into the above programs but may not grant their own diplomas.
    The big one is Brigham Young BYU Independent Study - High School Courses
    BYU Independent Study - Online Courses

    (Disclaimer: I work at OU.)

    Does Tom Nixon still have his website on online high schools?

    Also, if he is planning to go to a community college, if he scores high enough on an approved college placement test (ACT-Compass or College Board - Accuplacer), he would be eligible for Title IV Financial Aid (probably dependent on parents income since the OP is 19 years old).

    If the military is in his plans, he should avoid the GED UNLESS he puts a year of college in first. It is much more difficult to enlist in the military with a GED v. high school diploma.

    If none of these options apply, I would go with the GED. Many community colleges offer GED classes for free or reduced cost, far less than an online high school.

    Sorry, for the delay. I would suggest you one of the accredited online high school in united states named The Ogburn online school. The Ogburn Online School is a premier online homeschool designed to fit the specific needs of each one of our students. My daughter has been a part of this online homeschool with full flexibility of time and comfort. According to its educational standards this would offer you the best options.
