You need expert advice. First, visit the central offices of the local school district to get a professional opinion about the status of the "Alternative Program" from which you were supposedly getting a diploma. Anyone who doesn't know exactly what the program was called, where they operated, and who those in charge were can only guess about the situation, and wild guessing doesn't help you much. Having said that, though, I will make a couple of wild guesses about what direction things are going to go. First, the "accreditation" of this alternative program is probably worthless, and you are very likely going to need to get a GED. It might be wise to get information about the GED test, either at the school district offices when you visit them, at a community college, or at a public library. The second matter is the application for employment, and that's going to be a problem. I'm sorry to bring bad news, but no legitimate high school operates by simply sending "packets" which you do on your own, no legitimate high school has only two "owners" who do all the work (no teachers, no secretaries, no staff ???), and no legitimate high school suddenly shuts down and disappears, telling you that "You're done." You can save yourself the trouble of waiting for a diploma, because none is ever going to appear. Even if you did, in fact, get a piece of paper through the mail, it would have no value. Your goal right now is to recover from this disaster, and you need the guidance of education professionals at your school district, or possibly the counseling center at a community college. Counselors there might know of ways you can end up with a respectable education that employers will honor. In the meantime, you may have to settle for jobs which do not require a high school education, at least until you can finish a GED or otherwise earn a diploma. And one more thing. You have already been the victim of a scam, so please don't make the same mistake twice. Avoid websites which claim you can get a diploma "online." The internet is just full of scammers who will gladly take your money, and they don't care about the fact that you have already been stung once. Stick to brick-and-mortar, respected institutions such as your school district or the community college. It won't be quick or easy, but you have already learned the hard lesson that "quick and easy" can also mean "useless."
