Can I use Southeastern High School's Fast Track program to prepare me for college admissions and college level coursework?
No. The Fast Track Program (one test only) is not designed for college admissions or to prepare you for college level coursework. The Fast Track Program is an accelerated program designed for students who need an opportunity to earn a high school proficiency diploma for private sector jobs that require proof of high school proficiency, or, students who desire an opportunity to obtain a high school proficiency diploma for self-improvement and/or personal satisfaction. Our program is not designed for college admissions, military enlistment, or for government/public sector employment. Southeastern High School does not offer a college-bound or college preparatory program.
Note: Our Fast Track Program (one test only) provides students with an opportunity to graduate within 4 to 6 weeks. In order to meet the admissions requirements of a college in regards to applying as a high school diploma graduate, you must demonstrate on your official high school transcript that you have successfully completed "individual courses". These "individual courses" are approximately 28 courses that are usually completed in 4 YEARS. Also, depending on the state that you live in, you may be required to take and pass a public high school state exit exam in order to be able to receive a public high school diploma. Please be advised that if you are planning to apply to a college, the college may require more than a high school diploma; you may be required to have a sufficient exam score on a standardized test such as the SAT test and/or a sufficient exam score on a national college admissions examination such as the ACT. Additionally, the college may require college preparatory English courses, advanced Math courses such as Trigonometry and Calculus, advanced Science courses such as Physics and Chemistry, Foreign Language courses such as French and Italian, and other admissions requirements.
Even though Southeastern High School does not offer a college-prep program, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about college admissions. Our admissions counselors are available for a free no-cost consultation. To reach one of our admissions counselors simply pick up the phone and call 1-877-698-3540.
Why do you offer this program if it is not for college?
In employment, employers often evaluate if an employee or an employment candidate has sufficient proficiency in a wide range of high school subjects to ensure that person can perform tasks and duties that require proficient knowledge of high school subjects. In such instances, the high school proficiency diploma is useful and this is why we offer the program. It is a measure and gauge of a graduate’s proficiency, but not a substitution of a full four year high school program. If you are seeking to use the diploma for specific employment, purposes or criteria, we ask that you check with your employer first, to see if the Fast Track Program, or the diploma generally, meets their criteria.
What is your program good for?
Primarily for employment in the private sector and for self-improvement and/or personal satisfaction. Our program is not for college admissions, military enlistment, or for government/public sector employment. Most colleges, military branches, and government employment offices require either a G.E.D. or a 4 year regionally accredited high school diploma to qualify for employment. We do not offer the G.E.D. program or a 4 year regionally accredited high school diploma program. The acceptance of credits or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer.
Do I have to mail my previous high school transcripts to you?
No. There is no need to mail your previous high school transcripts. Your Southeastern High School transcript will be based on the academic performance of your successfully completed Fast Track Program Exam.
Is the Southeastern High School Proficiency Diploma a GED?
No. Southeastern High School is a PRIVATE home study high school that awards a high school proficiency diploma. Southeastern High School is NOT a public institution such as a public high school that offers the GED exam or a state department of education that offers a state high school proficiency exam in a proctored classroom testing environment.
The Fast Track program has been designed specifically for students who need an opportunity to earn a high school proficiency diploma for private sector jobs that require proof of high school proficiency, or, students who desire an opportunity to obtain a high school proficiency diploma for self-improvement and/or personal satisfaction. Our program is not designed for college admissions, military enlistment, or for government/public sector employment. Please be advised that the Fast Track program is NOT a college-prep program that prepares students for the admissions requirements of a college/university/trade school and is not a high school completion program that prepares students for educational enlistment requirements of the U.S. Military. The Fast Track program and this diploma may not be accepted by all educational institutions or employers as evidence of a high school education or diploma. "The Fast Track program and this diploma are NOT high school equivalencies and may not be accepted as evidence of a high school education or diploma by all colleges or employers. Students should check with any potential college or employer as to its specific criteria. This diploma is not accepted as evidence of a high school education or diploma by any branch of the United States Military."
Please be advised that the decision to recognize or accept Southeastern High School's high school proficiency diploma or any other diploma that you have earned is always the prerogative of the receiving institution in the United States. The decision to recognize or accept a diploma credential is usually based on the admissions requirements of the college or the employment policy of the employer. Southeastern High School makes no representation that the Fast Track program and this diploma will be recognized or accepted by ALL colleges or employers or that you will be guaranteed a job after graduating from Southeastern High School. Southeastern High School makes no representation of any kind concerning the fitness of its curriculum to meet any legal, educational, certification, licensing, or employment requirements.
If I need academic support can I call and talk to a teacher?
Yes. Academic Support is just a phone call away. Teachers are available Monday thru Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. With your study materials, you will receive a toll-free phone number to communicate with our Academic Support Department.
After graduation, how will I receive my proficiency diploma?
Upon completion of all your academic requirements and receipt of your final tuition payment, you will receive your 8 ½" x 11" high school proficiency diploma, showcased in a maroon and gold diploma cover. Along with your diploma, you will receive your official graduation letter and wallet-size diploma.
Is Southeastern High School an accredited high school?
Southeastern High School is accredited by the National Association for the Legal Support of Alternative Schools (N.A.L.S.A.S.). The National Association for the Legal Support of Alternative Schools is not recognized by the United States Department of Education and/or the Florida Department of Education.
Note: The U.S. Department of Education does not have the authority to accredit private or public elementary or secondary schools, and the Department does not recognize accrediting bodies for the accreditation of private or public elementary and secondary schools. However, the U.S. Department of Education does recognize accrediting bodies for the accreditation of institutions of higher (postsecondary) education. If an accrediting body which is recognized by the Department for higher education also accredits elementary and secondary schools, the Department’s recognition applies ONLY to the agency’s accreditation of postsecondary institutions.
The National Association for the Legal Support of Alternative Schools ONLY provides accreditation to private alternative schools at the K-12 level and the U.S. Department of Education does not recognize accrediting bodies for the accreditation of private or public elementary and secondary schools at the K-12 level. The Florida Department of Education does not accredit, regulate, approve, or license private schools. Additionally, the Florida Department of Education does not officially recognize any of the various agencies that accredit private schools. The acceptance of diplomas from private schools will be subject to the requirements of the receiving educational 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 their educational or employment goals will be met through enrollment at Southeastern High School. Those measures should include inquiries to prospective educational institutions or employers.
A Certificate of Accreditation issued by N.A.L.S.A.S. is not meant to represent an evaluation and/or approval of the materials, teaching staff or educational philosophy employed by the applicant program. Rather, only one standard is applied: consumer protection---an assurance to the general public: 1) that a member of the National Association for the Legal Support of Alternative Schools (N.A.L.S.A.S.) not involved with the control, operation, or proceeds of the applicant program has reviewed and confirmed documentation of their compliance with all state and local laws; and 2) that the conditions and advertising claims made regarding their location and operation have been verified (that the program is what it purports to be and does what it purports to do). Whether such a program is desirable or suitable for meeting the needs of a particular learner then becomes a question for the consumer to determine.
What is the purpose or mission of Southeastern High School?
Our mission is to provide an alternative choice to the traditional attendance-based model of education. We believe in students having the freedom to choose a high school completion program that meets their individual needs and the freedom to study at home and at their own pace.
What is the educational philosophy of Southeastern High School?
Southeastern High School was established by seasoned educators, who maintain that the traditional classroom-based model for secondary education is unsuitable for a significant, alienated and disenfranchised portion of the population. It is the view of this institution that students benefit from an educational program that allows the student to individualize his/her learning experience by navigating through coursework at his/her own pace. We believe in providing a supportive academic environment for a diverse population of learners who need to be agile thinkers, effective problem-solvers, and lifelong learners in an increasingly competitive world.
