A High School Diploma can make the difference between “getting the job” and being passed over. It is the first and most menial of personal goals that shows on your resume. A fake diploma, or one from an unaccredited “school”, is time and money wasted and not beneficial. The status of the accreditation for schools may change , so please do your own research.
Schools not accredited by a regional accrediting body. This doesn’t mean that you won’t learn from them or that the education is of poor quality, it is simply not recognized as up to the usual standards and not helpful to your pursuit of more education or employment. Employers and HR departments will know the difference, as will colleges that you hope to apply to for further education. there is no national agency that does accreditation for secondary / high schools. In California it is done by one of six regional agencies.
When you move on to college or vocational training, ask who the accrediting body is. Be wary of “licenced”, “certified” or “recognized” as program descriptions unless they also say “accredited”. The Federal Government will not offer you employment if your degree is not accredited or is from a “Diploma Mill”, and in some places, applying for work with one of these degrees is illegal.
It’s school so do your home work.
