Is anyone familiar with either Keystone National Highschool http://www.keystonehighschool.com/ , or James Madison Highschool http://www.jmhs.com/ ?? Both are online curiculam programs wich I am caught in between. My mom is fine with both but I don't know wich one to choose. So if you have experience or feedback, both positive or negative with eaither program please share. Thankyou in advance.

Hey, I'm sorry to say I'm not familiar with either of those Sad I would like to really find a program so I can get my diploma.. Has anyone tried Morningstar Online Academy.. The price is only like 600 something for the whole year if you enroll before June 30... I did "The Jubilee Academy" for 10th grade, it was alright.. but Morningstar Academy says it is Accredited and will give you a diploma and has full service teachers to tutor students...

I am a tenth grader has been taking classes with Keystone National Highschool for the past year. I very much like how the information is presented in a clear, concise manner, though I could not give an equal comparison to the other school as I have never heard of it.

Incidently, this was written by our college expert Andy Morkes in our old forum:

Quote:
While I offer no personal endorsement of Keystone National High School (KNHS), one of the key issues you need to consider when contemplating any distance learning program is accreditation. According to its website, KNHS is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council, the Commission on Schools and Colleges of the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (as well as licensed by the Pennsylvania State Board of Private Licensed Schools and authorized by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania). The fact that these are highly respected accrediting organizations should assist you in making an informed decision. I suggest that you contact these accrediting bodies for more information on the school, as well as contact KNHS directly with your questions.

I can't say anything about JMHS as I have not dealt with them. I've enrolled my daughter in several courses from Keystone. Chemistry was easy, definitely the liberal arts version, without requiring math. The math curriculum looks challenging and traditional, with courses up through calculus. The English and history courses are very heavy on writing, requiring many essays (2 - 5 three to five paragraph essays on each exam), journals, and/or papers. They offer several foreign languages and computer programing/graphics courses. It is a college prep program and has community activities such as discussion boards, school clubs, student written online newsletter, and honor society. The courses are expensive; however, and there is no single year or four year tuition option as with some of the other correspondence schools. Currently: Online iSchool (honors courses are only available online): $379.00 USD per full-credit course, plus shipping & handling, $279.00 USD per half-credit course, or Correspondence: $279.00 USD per full-credit course, plus s & h, $209.00 USD per half-credit course, plus s & h.
