i enrolled and at first they were great! but later they showed there true colors. they didnt care about me as a student. ive been with them for almost 2 years now and i have 3 more courses left, but 1,000.00 later and almost completed college prep course, i went to LSUA a college here in alex. LA to try and get in as dual enrollment where i get double credits like some high school and college credits, anyways at the school  they looked up the school online in the database it shows as an accreditted high school and college but when they manually looked in the accrediation book nationally and regionally book because they had never heard of this school, they heard of pinn foster which is a fraud also. and phonexi universty is a fraud also. anyways in the book it's not listed, which means its a scam and i cant go to college. now i have to get a G.E.D and i might have to wait to go to college until im 24 thats what the LSUA college told me if i get the G.E.D so what choice do i have now. anyways this school has lost my final exams and they are always rude. so when i get back home from the college i call and confront the school and they still are lieing, i told them that i am taking it to the next level after they continue to lie to me and steal my hard earned money! i will never do online schooling again. my dreams have come to a screetching hault because i have to stop and go get my G.E.D... not to even include that one time before a few aggrivations with this school i had to do an essay and i wrote about my bad experience with ashworth they gave me a 0 F and told me to write about something else and redo an essay! i make A's B's and C's and i only have one D on my report card, i busted my butt with this school for a while and sat here 14-16 hours day and night trying to get done as soon as possible so i could go to college. then this school the lady that i talked to the last time today told me that they dont even accept the high school diploma they give out! what!???! how can u do that!? she was also saying that schools in diffrent states can decide if they want to accept that diploma. well if u have so called sacs and distance learning and there's another one they claim they have. sacs is southern association creditations or something like that. i live in the south so it would be accepted if it was true. and she said not necisarly. i hung up on her then. it felt good, cause it seems like i have tried to work with them more than they have tried to work with me. i feel neglected from this school and i want them to be wiped off from the map. yes i had called the department of education here and they told me they was accreditted but they arent. so i called BBB here and they told me they was as well, and a friend of mines mother did as well, and they told us it was accreditted as well, well i went to go look on the internet on the BBB's website, and the department of higher education of louisiana and james madison high school is not accreditted! so i want my money back and i want this school to dissapear into thin air!

First of all, your spelling and grammar is HORRIBLE!! Second of all, its not Pinn Foster, Its Penn Foster and they are not a scam!! They have the same accreditation regionally as traditional on campus schools (Middle States Commission on Secondary Schools).  You should REALLY know what your talking about before posting it onto a site like this!! They have an A+ rating with the BBB so please get your facts right!

I don't know what you're talking about because I have been accepted into every college that I've applied to. Ashworth may be slow about getting your transcripts, but all two-year colleges and four-year universities will accept you, because they are SACS accredited.

I have not a clue what your report is about!! No wonder you cannot get into college.  Your spelling and punctuation is a joke to say the least!
