American School is pleased to exhibit at the Arizona Families for Home Education Convention this weekend in Phoenix.  Stop by and visit us in booth 1123 of the South Building of the Phoenix Convention Center on Friday, July 15, and Saturday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. both days.  As usual, we'll have information about our correspondence high school diploma program and online high school diploma program, as well as information about our new accredited middle school program.  If you need more incentives to come in from the heat and visit us, we'll have our famous promotional items available too.  We hope to see you there and hope to see all of our readers back here on Monday when our blog returns.

Today’s Birthday: The American School Blog

It's July 11, and the American School Blog made its debut 10 years ago today.  In 2006, July 11 was the date of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Pittsburgh, and so our first blog was about how you can be an all-star student after you enroll with American School.  A decade later, that still holds true.  Our students enjoy working at their own pace and getting assistance as needed from our qualified instructors.  They also appreciate outstanding curriculum, caring student service, affordable cost and impeccable credibility.  Those things haven't changed in a decade, but plenty of other things have.  We now have online high school courses and online middle school courses, including world languages through Rosetta Stone.  This fall we'll be adding even more courses that will keep us at the top of the list of distance education high schools.  We're grateful for your support of this blog and look forward to sharing many more posts with you in our second decade of blogging!


Looking Back at 10 Years of ASCA Conferences

Yesterday's blog about the ASCA Conference this weekend in New Orleans got us thinking about previous ASCA events, and we realized that this year is the 10th anniversary of us having a booth at the ASCA Conference, making it our longest continuously attended show.  We've enjoyed meeting school counselors in Chicago, Denver, Atlanta, Dallas, Boston, Seattle, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Orlando and Phoenix and now look forward to adding New Orleans to that list.  Counselors are excited to learn about credit recovery through our independent study high school programs and dropout recovery through our correspondence high school diploma program or a diploma program with the best online high school courses, and we're just as excited to meet counselors in person and hear ideas on how we can become an even better distance education high school.  A lot has changed in a decade, including our recent addition of online middle school courses as part of an accredited middle school program, and we'll continue to look back on what's happened since 2006 in our Monday blog.  

American School to Attend ASCA Conference

American School is pleased to attend the ASCA Conference from July 9-11 in New Orleans.  We'll be in booth 409 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center to meet with members of the American School Counselor Association on July 9 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.; July 10 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; and on July 11 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m.  Counselors will be excited to hear about our new online middle school courses and accredited middle school program.  They'll also be happy to learn how our high school correspondence courses and online high school courses can be taken for credit recovery or enrichment through our independent study high school program.  We are grateful for all the school counselors who already work with us and hope our trip to New Orleans will be beneficial to additional school counselors and students.  

Online Exams Available in Four Subjects

American School is pleased to announce the availability of online exams in four high school correspondence courses.  Students taking Business Law, Business English, Home Repair and Maintenance and Sociology now have the option of taking their exams online or doing them on paper.  This option is available for the vast majority of our paper-based courses and is perfect if you're in our general high school program, college preparatory program or independent study high school programs.  If you haven't enrolled yet, do so today!

American School Closed July 4th

American School will be closed Monday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.  We are grateful to have students not only in the United States but in more than 65 countries around the world.  All of them want to earn a high school diploma at home or take our new online middle school courses, and we are grateful for all of them.  We will reopen Tuesday, July 5, with our regular business hours.  Have a great weekend!
