They FAIL to tell you when you sign up that NOTHING is recognized! THEIR DIPLOMA'S ARE FAKE! FAKE! FAKE! They are NOT accredited ANYWHERE and they want you to spend A LOT OF MONEY on their STUPID EASY PROGRAMS. My husband needed his HS Diploma. We found Stratford, everything was so AMAZING. They even told us it was "recognized" My husband graduates, gets a "Diploma", tries to join the Air Force. They tell him the diploma is DENIED! 

He tried a couple of years later to join a Police Academy and guess what, THEY TOLD HIM IT WAS FAKE!!!!!! DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY WITH THESE PEOPLE! THEY WILL NOT REFUND AND IT COSTS WAY MORE THAN $500! YOU CAN GET YOUR G.E.D. FOR LIKE, $150 AND IT'S THE ONLY THING THAT IS EQUIVALENT TO A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA! These guys are JERKS! SCAMMERS! AND LIARS! MONEY STEALERS!!!!!!

AUTHOR: J - (USA)

Their diploma is recognized. In Illinois for example, every school that isn't run by the government can be recognized. The rules on this vary from state to state. However, recognized is not accredited. Some public schools are also not accredited.

Read this very carefully. Accredidation comes from the government. They do not like anything that they cannot control and hardly ever will accredit any school but their own. Its the government's own system to mark their own schools as 'good' ones. They're not going to put other people's schools in there, especially ones that aren't even in the USA.

This brings me to another point. Stratford is based in Canada, correct? So even if they were fully government accredited, they would be Canadian accredited! The US military typically wouldn't accept an international high school diploma, because they typically expect US citizens to go to high school in the US. A US Police Academy probably wouldn't either.

I would also like to point out the military didn't say the diploma was fake, only that they would not accept it.

The military wants public school (or rich-kid private school) only. Especially the Air Force, who starts people off as officers (officer = graduated from accredited high school). As far as the military goes, the only way to guarantee acceptance of your high school work is to attend accredited public high school.

The Police Academy lied - be glad you didn't have to deal with training from incompetents there.

Graduating from a private church-based high school puts many people in the same boat - except for Catholic ones which are somehow extra special.

Sadly, much of the USA is filled with people who claim anything they haven't heard of before is fake. Don't be one of them. Don't be like that elected official that got mad at a private college because they wouldn't admit his daughter and forced the school to move off the North American continent by using the power of his office to order government workers to shut down the school and harass its employees.

Let me summarize. Accredidation in the US (primary and secondary) is a tool made by and for the public schools. It doesn't mean the other schools are bad, just different. For example, the US is not going to accredit a public high school in London England either, but that doesn't make it fake.

Yes, a public school issued GED is the only equivalent the US government recongizes to a US public school graduation. That's what the government says, not what's right.
