You are right about looking for an accredited school for your high school diploma. Online schools are also accredited schools and Belford looks like an accredited one too. There is not much different between online and traditional schools these days. Online schools are good option for some students specially the late beginners.

Online schools are just like your traditional schools and they need to be accredited in order to be recognized and accepted for employment and further education. Belford is an accredited online school and they offer high school diploma programs to working adults and home school students. I personally think that online schools are a much better option and traditional schools should also offer online diploma programs.

Belford high school offers prior learning based diploma program. Many experts consider this an easy solution for experienced professionals, skilled artisans and people with acquired knowledge to earn an unconventional educational certificate for their contribution, effort and self learning. Belford provides online high school diploma program to individuals with disabilities, experience, talent and expertise. Comparing Belford with conventional schools and colleges is unfair since this school does not offer conventional educational programs.

To answer your question, I would say, yes it is an accredited online school offering high school diploma program. Accreditation is not some kind of licensing program, it is not mandatory. Schools and colleges join accreditation programs to ensure quality and standard guidelines.

After doing a little research it seems that Belford High and Belford University are what legitimate online schools refer to as "diploma Mills." It is rumored that both Belford schools will give anyone a diploma for the right amount of money, and on top of that the accreditation they advertise is not recognized by any of the six US regional accrediting organizations.
