Penn Foster is a for-profit college. You'd be better off at a community college or a state university.

It doesn't have the best reputation. It is a for-profit school, and those are often a bit suspect. The degrees you get from them are not highly regarded. If you're looking for a vocational certificate, then it might be okay; however, you can often find the same types of programs at community colleges for much less money. If you hope to transfer your credits elsewhere, then do not consider this school; the classes will not count toward a degree from a traditional college/university.

I would strongly advise avoiding any school which is not regionally accredited.

It has mixed reviews. Be aware that it's a "for profit" college, and many "for profit" schools have been under scrutiny in the past decade for not consistently delivering what they promise. With that said, Penn Foster has been around for quite a few years, and was one of the leaders in distance education.

Penn Foster is a legitimate school, but is only nationally accredited as opposed to the regional accreditation most more well-known schools possess. That being said, it's a decent program at a reasonable cost, especially if you have another school in mind you can transfer their credits to later.
