Penn Foster Career School - I am a student of penn foster accused of cheating

I am a student of Penn Foster.I was accused cheating,because I progressed through the program rapidly.I am fifty-two years old and have worked countless hours for the last five months on my program,to obtain my high school diploma.I was six test away from completing the program when I recieved a letter in the mail stating that disiplinary action would be taken against me.Penn Foster requested that I write a letter explaining how I progessed through the program rapidly.

I recieved a email that additional testing would be required.I am completing the aditional testing now.Penn Foster is considering these test as make-up exams with the highest obtainable grade a 70%.I had an average of over 90%,but with this testing considered as make-up examinations my average will be only 70%.I thought this program was work at your own pace.

After reading your review I am sure that you were cheating. There is no way you can pass a college course with spelling and grammar like yours.

I was accused also I told them to go right ahead and choose any subject and I will retake the exam and they gave me math and science and I passed again and they owed me an apology. because I was well ahead and they graduated with a 3.8gpa

i am attending Penn Foster also. I am 19 years old and was also accused of cheating. But I am in a job corps center taking the program and the only thing they told me that I was accused of cheating by taking my books home and doing my self checks. Mind you, the teacher told me I could take my books home and study and that was my idea of studying.

Wow! I have been working on this HS program day and night. I am not working at the moment, and I year ago another online school lied, they were not accredited. I know all about it since I was going to get my GED also. I really hope they will not do this to me too, because I am going super fast.

I go to Pennfoster,and I always get between a 60-80 or a 90. Never 100. ;_;
I don't cheat,but I do struggle,and I reread everything five times. I never got this thank god because it takes me a day,maybe four hours to complete two exams. I also download my study guide and my book.

that sucks, I disagree with a lot of you that say Penn Foster is no good. I'm half way through my associates degree program in engineering and I'm at the 5 month mark. I get nothing but encouragement from P.F. and I work full time.
