List of Unaccredited Online High Schools

There are many resources that list unaccredited schools. Keep in mind that even the most detailed list can contain mistakes, and that new schools and new scams emerge every day. Another thing to consider is that previously unaccredited schools often correct the problems that put them on a list in the first place. The following list contains diploma mills that may no longer exist, as well as some of the better-known scam schools you should avoid.
