I just don't get it!!
June 9, 2012
Okay, I'm not here to rant & rave like most people. I do understand that everyone has negative experiences. Here's my story: I wanted to get a certificate in business management in order to get a job promotion. Well, I searched and searched. Penn Foster Career School (Online) seemed like the perfect program for me. & I was right! I loved it. It was an amazing school, and had great customer service. Well, since I ... [Read more]

I'm almost done with my BA and it has been a great experience. Ashworth is accredited (I checked with DCFS in Illinois). You don't have the attention from the teachers like you would in the transitional school setting but you are able to communicate with them and they do give you feedback. The price for a degree is unbelievable so I can complain about the insinuation. I'm happy and excited that I will have a ... [Read more]

You all are wrong about Ashworth! It's not as bad as you say...
May 5, 2012
I enrolled my Daughter in James Madison High School because she has been Home schooled since she was in the second grade. I wanted her to have a High School Diploma just in case in the future she wants to go to College she will have a Diploma that is recognized as legitimate. She has received nothing less than a "B" for her Final grades and she has basically completed all her Subjects within a ... [Read more]

Depends on what type of learner you are...
October 2, 2012
This is an online school. You are expected to pace your own work. You are expected to read your book, do the chapter reviews, take notes and anything else you need to learn the material. Make no mistake, you are homeschooling yourself. If this is not for you, do not attend this school. I have enjoyed my time with this school and I feel like I have learned much from the program I'm in. I ... [Read more]

It's a great school for the busy adult
October 23, 2012
Ashworth is just the right college for me. I wanted to work in law enforcement and it did the job. I wasn't looking to go into a white collar Ivy League job. I wanted to do civil service and that's what I got. Ashworth is a great school for people who are looking for blue collar jobs . If you want to be a lawyer go else where, if you want to be a fireman, ... [Read more]

I really enjoyed this school. Yes the customer service sucks sometimes, but that's no different from other places. JP Morgan Chase recognized this school as accredited and paid my tuition. Once I graduated with my associate's in accounting, I was promoted. It was a very conveinent for me also. I have three kids that keep me very busy, and being able to pursue my education at my own pace is awesome. I just signed up ... [Read more]

Well, I've graduate from five programs from this school Pros: Very good for busy schedule, great books, great material. Cons: They have changed the "support" situation for the students. If you need help, FORGET IT! You will have a "Counselor" call you within 24hrs., you wont know when either, so if your at work, too bad, you better answer the phone! Or else you will have to call again and wait another 24 hrs. There ... [Read more]
