Discover Penn Foster High School

Penn Foster High School is a regionally and nationally accredited online high school that allows students to earn their diploma from home at their own pace. The high school diploma program is designed for traditional students, student athletes, adult learners who did not complete high school, and homeschoolers; individual course options are also offered in a broad range of subjects for those students who need only a few course credits.

Homeschool students are able to control their curriculum by choosing career-focused electives in their area of interest. Parents can take on more of a coaching or mentoring role, rather than that of a primary instructor. Although students homeschool, they are not isolated because they are a part of an online community of high school students. All Penn Foster High School students enjoy the flexibility and convenience of independent study, with expert instructors and support staff available via email and phone to answer questions and assist with coursework when needed.

Penn Foster High School students could save an average of $250 for prior credits they've earned.1 The school also offers students low monthly tuition payments with 0% interest. Books, study guides, and learning aids are included in Penn Foster High School programs and are available as soon as their enrollment is accepted.
