I wanted to further my education and was trying to get my ged.  I found John Adams Virtual High School online and read about them.  It stated that they were accredited and has different links so you can varify that. 

I then did they classes online and passed all the classes.  Then i paid over 600 dollars for my ged.  I finally received it in the mail and tried to further my education and go to college.  University of phonix and Grantham University will not accept it they said they are not accredited.

Now not only is that a waste but i wasted all this time trying to get into schools and thought i was good to go but was lied to.  Now John Adams gives you a number and email to reach them but can never be reached at any time and never return emails.

These places should really be shut down!

AUTHOR: Steve - (USA)

By the very nature of the services they purport to offer, the kind of people that get taken in by these companies are those that are the least educated, and thus the least prepared to see it for what it is. Many will blame them for wanting to just "buy a diploma," but I suspect they do really think they are getting an education. 

I took a look at the website, and it is quite slick. I went to the "accreditation" section and had to take a while parsing what they were saying, and then researching the accrediting agency to see that it was basically a fake. I am a dude with a BS in CompSci/Math; can we really expect someone without even a high school diploma to detect the scam ahead of time? 

Now I'll admit, normally I make fun of the uneducated people on this site. But in cases like these, the victim knows they are uneducated, and are trying to change that, but are then thwarted by those who would take advantage of that lack of education.

It really f^&*ing depresses me.

It's a good thing you found out now rather than later...

AUTHOR: MovingForward - (USA)

Let's chat here for a moment.

Did you actually read your post? Did you see any grammatical errors when you proof read your post? If you noticed those errors, then why did you post it before you made the corrections? If you didn't see the errors, then it is clear that you need more education.

Don't go to a virtual school for your GED. Please get your education from a school in your area so you have the education to go along with your diploma. Make sure you take an English course so you can learn to communicate.

I think it is a great thing you want to go to college after you get your GED. It is possible to do so and to do very well afterward. However, if you just buy a GED from a website (like you tried to do) you don't get the education that will allow you to succeed at the college level.

Once you get an official GED or even a HS diploma, then go to a community college in your area to further your education. Stay away from UOP and others like it if you really want to get an education.

Ironic

AUTHOR: Mandy - (U.S.A.)

Ironic that UoP doesn't accept the GED from that online high school, since UoP is a fake college anyway. Their accreditations are crap and their degrees aren't accepted in the real world.

Once you are able to get a legitimate GED or diploma, PLEASE don't go to UoP. Find an online program through a local college or a state university.
