Online High Schools
Students who desire to complete their high school studies online must choose their school carefully. Many online high schools are not legitimate high schools. These schools promise that you can complete your entire high school career in as little as a few weeks for only a small fee. In addition, while they state that they are accredited high schools, their accreditation agencies consist of nothing more than a website and list no employees or contact information. These schools are obviously fraudulent and the diploma you receive is not legitimate and may in fact be illegal to use in many states. It is for this reason that Southeast Tech does not accept diplomas earned from most online high schools. To search for legitimate online high schools, go to the Distance Education Training Council website.
For students who want to complete their secondary education as quickly as possible, Southeast Tech recommends the GED option. The GED is self-paced and you can complete it very quickly if you are so motivated. If you wish to be accepted into a legitimate, post-secondary institution anywhere in the nation you must complete actual testing at an authorized GED testing center. Southeast Tech offers the GED through our Adult Learning Center. They are located in the Mickelson Center and can be reached by calling 605.367.7997.
