Love the school! You are able to work at your own pace and unlike many other online schools, you are not required to complete assignments on a specific date. You also don't have to do assignments in a specific order, but you are required to complete all prerequisites before some of the courses will open. The classes are not that challenging so if you are looking for an online school that is academically challenging this may not be the right school for you. But since the classes are fairly easy, this leaves you with a lot of time to study other things that interest you. The teachers are super helpful. But the biggest downfall to most online schools is that it can be pretty hard to connect with your fellow classmates. They do have a website that allows you to join virtual clubs and the websit also has a section where you can post questions in a forum. Overall, I am very happy that I attended this school and that I was able to graduate at the age of 15.

My junior year, I chose to leave public school and attend online classes through Penn Foster's NCAA Honors high school program. This allowed me to graduate a year early with an honors diploma and focus on extra curriculars such as music and volunteering at an elder care facility. The courses were challenging, but it taught me how to manage my time with college level work! I am so thankful for the college preparatory experience through Penn Foster.
I signed up for Penn Foster after my parents talked to me about home schooling. After the hard time I had with public schools, especially because I had moved so often, this program was like a breath of fresh air. Penn Foster is a homeschooling program online that takes you through the courses of a normal high school, but more thoroughly, with helpful reviews along the way and carefully created exams that make sure you have learned the material and showed you what you needed to work on. You are connected to polite and helpful tutors that have always answered my questions and known how to walk me step by step through problems I may be having. Classes aren't taken together, but are given to you one at a time, so you are able to focus all your attention on learning that one subject. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking into homeschooling programs, as I have had an amazing experience with Penn Foster and wish for others to have the same experience.
