There are a number of organizations which claim to offer free, instant high school diplomas but these are not accredited qualifications and they will not be accepted by educational establishments or businesses. Additionally there will be a charge, which may be hundreds of dollars, for your diploma or ‘graduation pack’ so not only will the diploma be unusable, it will also be expensive rather than free.
These websites, often known as ‘diploma mills’, offer a variety of diplomas based on some sort of online test or statement of life skills. The mills seem to offer a free testing service but then make money by charging applicants for administration fees to provide the actual certificate.
A real high school diploma shows that the recipient has reached a certain level of education and this needs to be independently verified by ensuring the graduate is the actual person who took the tests. Certificates bought over the internet can be completed by anybody so the US Department of Education does not recognize these types of instant diploma.
If you did not finish high school you could consider studying for a General Education Development (GED) diploma. This is a qualification in math, literature, science and arts for those who did not graduate from high school and is recognized in the USA and Canada.
GED training can be available for free from local community college but you must take a test in an approved GED testing center. You cannot get this qualification via a website and it will take some time to achieve, depending on how much studying you need to do to gain sufficient knowledge to pass the tests.
If you did graduate and just need to get a copy of your diploma, you need to apply for a diploma reissue from the department of education in the state you graduated. Depending on which state, there may be a small administration charge for the duplicate and this will usually take several weeks to come through.

If you are of traditional high school age, an increasing number of free online high schools are available. However, you need to live in a state that offers them. Because they are funded locally, there are no reputable free online high schools that can accept students from outside their state. Since you do not mention in which state you live, it is difficult to give you additional assistance. If you come back and post your state, I know I can help you further.

Call your local high school and check with the counselor at the school there to see what the options are. If they are anything worth their salt, they will be happy to help you. They should be the expert on this. Once, you do this, if you do find out that it does cost something, go to a local church and explain to them what you are trying to do. Most of the churches will help you with either the fees or can help with finding someone to help to take care of your children for no cost.
Hope this helps!
