Excell high school fake or not fake

#1  Postby viocjit » Jan 28, 2019 8:22 pm

I want infos about "Excel High School" ( http://www.excelhighschool.com/ ) who say it's a legitimate school that deliver "High School Diploma" over Internet.

I'm sceptical about this statement because I don't think we can get a legit diploma from Internet.
I think it's a rogue school. Am I right ?

They say there are accredited by the non-profit , non-governmental organization AdvancED ( http://www.advanc-ed.org/oasis2/u/par/a ... onId=25182 ) and that is true.
This High School is listed as a non-public school in a website of Minnesota Department of Education under the tag 0284-31-022 : http://w20.education.state.mn.us/MdeOrg ... show/14842

You can read there some of their claims : https://www.excelhighschool.com/accreditation.php

It's weird but this school or pseudo-school is registered in the University of California a-g course program : https://hs-articulation.ucop.edu/agcour ... ution/5060

Is this a mill diploma like I think ?

You can get a master's degree online, so there's no reason in principle that you can't get a high school diploma online. I've done online qualifications, and what they usually mean is that the teaching and input happens online, but then you go to a physical location for any exams you have to do. For some exams you can just turn up and do the exam if you think you're capable of passing it. Obviously the nature of certain subjects means you may need access to a laboratory or something like that, so it may be difficult to do certain subjects online (although I guess if there's a practical exam, wherever the exams are taking place would have to provide one).
