Home Educators' Curriculum Manual : Junior/Senior High by Cathy Duffy. The

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.
