High School Accreditation





Accredited online high schools: Regional agencies are recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). They are the same organizations who grant the traditional free standing (building) public/private universities and school their accreditation.

If you earn a degree from online high schools and they are accredited by one of these associations, you can be assured that it will be as valid as a degree from any regular university.
