After much deliberation I've decided to shift my high school career to the online world. My applications are pending and I won’t know if I’ve been accepted until later this year, however each that I’ve applied to have fantastic art programs, varied and more detailed than the current one at my “brick-and-mortar” high school.
Of course the schools will tell you no just to get you to enroll, but will this affect my chances of entering the art college of my choice? I've heard that the diploma you receive, which is distributed through the district the school operates out of, is sometimes seen with the weight of a GED. I've also heard it is regarded as higher than a normal high school diploma as it was earned independently.
I, being the lowly high school sophomore I am, don’t really understand the academic weight of a GED versus the traditional high school diploma. I also don’t understand colleges’ outlook on online school, especially art schools.
Can someone help clear some things up for me?
