Advice from the US Department of Education:
"Accreditation does not provide automatic acceptance by an institution of credit earned at another institution, nor does it give assurance of acceptance of graduates by employers. Acceptance of students or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer. For these reasons, besides ascertaining the accredited status of a school or program, students should take additional measures to determine, prior to enrollment, whether or not their educational goals will be met through attendance at a particular institution. These measures should include inquiries to institutions to which transfer might be desired or to prospective employers and, if possible, personal inspection of the institution at which enrollment is contemplated." Accreditation in the United States,


That statement was made concerning university and college accreditation, but it applies equally to accreditation of high school programs. There are a variety of accrediting agencies that may or may not be accepted by colleges, universities, local school systems and state and federal governments. There are no nationally recognized accrediting agencies for K-12 schools. Many of the federally recognized agencies that offer accreditation on the post secondary level have expanded into K-12 accreditation. You have to decide for yourself if accreditation is necessary and which accrediting agencies you personally accept as valid. Homeschoolers gain admission to college and vocational training without accredited diplomas all the time.
