The Importance of Attending a Fully Accredited School

American High School is one of only a handful of schools in the US that hold the highest level of accreditation possible at the state, regional, national, and international level. Our degrees are approved and accepted both in the US and around the world. You will not find a more widely recognized and accepted degree than ours.Accreditation determines if a school and its credits and diplomas are considered ‘real’ by other high schools, colleges and universities, employers, all levels of government, and the military.


There is nothing more frustrating than spending hundreds or thousands of dollars only to discover that your credits and diploma are not accepted by employers, the military, or other schools.Tens of thousands of people just like you have believed they were paying for and working to obtain a real degree, only to watch their dream turn into a nightmare when they tried to actually use their degree. Don’t let that happen to you!


Checking a school’s accreditation is the most important step in choosing the best online school for you. While there is no ‘National Board of Education’ that accredits middle schools, high schools, or universities; the U.S. Department of Education oversees the most reputable and important accrediting bodies. It is a good place to look when checking a school’s credentials.
