Continental Academy Is a Complete Ripoff! Their High School Diploma WILL NOT get you into College! Miramar, Florida

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

My brother enrolled in Continental Academy as a junior in high school.  When he enrolled, the school informed him that he would  only have to complete high school courses for 11th and 12th grade.  After these courses were completed, the academy went back and added courses for grades 9 and 10 to his schedule and he worked to complete those.  After taking countless classes, while my parents struggled to make the payments for his education (over $1,200 in payments), my brother finally graduated with a 3.8! 

He received a high school diploma in the mail, with the seal of completion and our family was elated!  Well, my brother had his dreams of becoming a college student in the fall crushed this morning, when he went to apply to a local junior college here in our town.  He was told that no college in our city (and possibly our state) would recognize his diploma.  They told him that he would either have to return to high school or get a GED!  My brother was so upset that it brought him to tears, as he worked so hard to earn this worthless piece of paper! 

When we called Continental Academy, we were put on hold, and sat there so long that we finally hung up the phone!  We need someone to step in and stop this scam from continuing to occur.  I looked up their rating with the Better Business Bureau, and they received an "F"!  Is this not enough to shut them down, so that they do not continue to rip off students and their families who are trying to get an education that is actually going to be of service to them!  Someone HELP!
