I attend college online with Penn Foster. Penn Foster is a great online school with very affordable prices. They allow you to make a monthly payment plan or pay in full. They have a nice selection of programs to choose from and offer new programs all the time. I am currently enrolled in the Graphic Design program and so far, I have learned a lot. You are allowed up to 12 months to finish a semester and do not have due dates, or dead lines for exams. I would highly recommend Penn Foster to those who may not have a lot of money or are very limited in the time they have to study for school.
High School Diploma
I attended the Penn Foster High School program for my senior year of high school. I learned a lot more through this program than I did in the three years I attended a regular high school. It’s all at your own pace and you must teach yourself versus getting taught the material. This is a great option to get an actually High School Diploma versus just a GED. Along with the regular High School Program they also offer a High School with Health Concentration, High School with Early College Courses, and High School with Building Technology Concentration program. To enroll in this program you must have at least finished 8th grade.
