    People need social life. Thats the answer why they go to high school, not just sit by the PC 10 years. If you don’t have time for finishing high school just wait till you get some time, and get general education diploma in local college at flexible schedulle. Online learning is all about “I don’t have time for school”, do you think those kids don’t have time for school?

    Um, you can get a high school diploma online. They just generally aren’t considered as good because the testing is done at home on the internet and it would be easy to cheat. It is closer to a GED than a real high school diploma but it is possible.
    You can even take online classes to transfer credit to your hometown high school.

    Additional Information
    Actually, not all places requre a proctered exam. I have done quite a bit of research on online education as I am an education major now and many places just require an exam that is available online with the rest of the course. I have audited several different online universities’ classes and none of them have required any of the students to travel to an exam site.

    Yes, indeed! You can get a high school diploma online.

    cdcsub gave some good points and a good link, but there is more to it than that.

    Many fully accredited universities offer high school educations online, and here is a link to just one, The University of Missouri.

    Cheating is possible almost anywhere, but in order to get the diploma, you must take a PROCTORED exam for each course. These can be done on campus of the sponsoring college or at any of the other acceptable locations. The key is PROCTORED, for your examination process will be monitored.

    If you were to choose a good, fully and properly accredited university for a high school program, the diploma will be accepted virtually anywhere.

    There y’go,
