Is High School Accreditation Necessary?

Frankie on Facebook was concerned about high school accreditation, and contacted me with this question:

I have a son who is entering High School and we are trying to find a High School program that is accredited. The trick is to find one that will also be accepted by an accredited College. At this point my son seems to want to go into the criminal justice direction but it has been tough for me since there are so many different kinds of accreditation (regional I believe) I was wondering if you knew of a website or if you had a list of accredited colleges and what accreditation they accept? Anything you can provide would be a great help!


Check out this article about accreditation.

Then contact the colleges your son may want to go to, and see what is required to get in. Requirements rarely include accreditation.
