I can't say weather Penn Foster classes helped that or my son smart enough on his own I know he does well.Here's where the problem is: No support to help the student to go further.
YES 5-8 HOURS AND DONT FORGET THE RESTRAINT OF CLASS CONNECTS!They refuse to give me full credit for what I have already paid. I am going for my Associate's Degree in Retail Management and so far its very good.The lessons are informative and the exams are challenging.To be honest my son has done the entire program in under a year minus the 3 classes he has left but we can't sign because there is not expected grad date only an anticipated and his title is director not principle, oh and we are still waiting for the payment to drop off even though they have the money so I can order transcripts. He found Penn Foster and I agreed to let him use their services. After he was enrolled for a month or so, I started recognizing the logo and was like, "wow this is my old school"! Some of them are worded in such a way that you have to know the material to answer correctly .So here's what i get from them and to be completely honest, the diploma is good it is official it will be taken, The employees at the school don't care about you or your kid, you are a 2nd class citizen. I called them up and they found my transcripts and was willing to transfer credit. The exams are short but if your aim is to learn then study the material. But anyone can cheat on any online program, even k12, another my children have been on.
