Adison High School is NOT a legitimate, accredited school! They are spending good money on Google AdWords to drive well meaning adults to their site, taking $299, and they have NO ABILITY TO GRANT A LEGITIMATE DIPLOMA! Hint-at-a-glance #1: the signature and license # on the certificate on their website is blurred so that it can’t be properly verified. So I decided to check out their accreditors to see if they were really listed.
Their “accreditation” is listed under the International Accreditation Committee of Online Schools. Let’s find out more about the IACOOS. Check out their “Standards and Process,” particularly the heading Student Progress:
- The institution must inform their students to uphold punctuality and apprise them of their progress throughout the completion of the program. The appraisals must be given on a regular basis.
Wow. Punctuality? In an online course?! And that is their one and only requirement of student progress for their member agencies. Who are these people and why haven’t they been arrested yet?
So I filled out their online form to send an email to ask how they could possibly sleep at night, being complete frauds. But when you try to click Submit nothing happens. They have some clever web designers coupled with a few nice logos, and they are all set up to take people’s money for nothing.
The closer I look, the more I find that is completely awful. Adison offers a 24/7 education verification service. Their webpage uses the copyright symbol with no year. They even offer an online High School Equivalency test with 4 sections full of–and I quote–“simple and easy multiple choice questions.” Sounds like a dream come true, right?! Forget the sirens, this is a sweet song that is bound to hypnotise too many already poor people as they open their wallets…
