Is High Speed High School accredited?
Roughly 50% of brick and mortar high schools across North America are unaccredited and graduates of such schools usually do not have problems obtaining jobs or entering higher level education. Higher Education organizations recognize that more and more students are being home schooled these days, and as long as a student can pass certain entry level tests they are often accepted into higher education programs.
However we cannot guarantee that higher education institutes/universities or all potential employers will accept applicants with high school diplomas issued by non-accredited institutions. Therefore if you have any doubts on this matter please do not commit to this program at this time. We recommend that you do further research until you are reassured that having a diploma from a non-accredited institution is right for you or your adolescent.
If you wish to receive a high school diploma by distance, from an accredited institution, please check for other such programs online, or check back with us for updates, as we may be able to provide such in the future.
Accreditation simply means that an organization or institute has paid a certain fee to an accrediting agency, of which there are many. CIEAN currently chooses not to go through this process as it is very costly and in our own experience have found that institutes with accreditation do not necessarily provide better quality education.
Is this an international program?
Yes, we currently have students in 4 countries.
How long does it take to complete 4 years of high school with High Speed High School?
Some students can learn as though their hair is on fire and finish in three months. Others will take perhaps 6, 12, or 18 months. The choice and pace is up to each parent/student.
In the case of a student needing more than 12 months to complete the program, upon special request and consideration of the circumstances of the student, an extension of up to 6 extra months can be obtained free of charge. Once 18 months have passed however, if the student has still not completed the program, any difference in tuition (if there has been a rise during those 18 months) will have to be paid in order to remain in the program and graduate. In addition, we are not liable to any students who have been with us for longer than 18 months, should any unforeseen circumstance permanently interrupt the program availability.
How old does the student need to be to start High Speed High School?
Students must be 15-years-old at commencement of the program.
