American School Closed November 10

American School is closed Friday, November 10, in advance of Veterans Day.  We owe our veterans a debt of gratitude for their service to our country and our ideals.  Because of them, we are proud to include the word "American" in our name.  We offer an online high school diploma for adults or children, a correspondence high school diploma program and an accredited middle school program for those students who need those types of programs.  We also offer independent study high school and middle school courses for those students who need credit recovery or have scheduling conflicts in a traditional school.  Check out the rest of our web site to enroll today.  We'll process your application when we return to the office on Monday, November 13.

Georgia Renaissance Festival Schedules Field Trip Day

The Georgia Renaissance Festival will host Field Trip Day exactly six months from today on May 8, 2018.  Students who attend this event will have the opportunity to talk with Leonardo da Vinci and Henry VIII, see birds of prey in action, hear William Shakespeare's monologues, and watch demonstrations of glassblowing, pottery, weaving, blacksmithing and more.  If you're taking one of our high school correspondence courses or online high school courses in World History or English and will be in Georgia, this could be an event that brings to life what you're learning in those courses.  If you can't attend the Georgia Renaissance Festival, we encourage you to find similar events near your hometown.

Selena Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

The late singer Selena recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but before she received that honor, she was an American School student.  We're proud of Selena and all of our students.  They enroll with us because we offer outstanding and affordable online high school courses, high school correspondence courses and online middle school courses.  Soon we'll offer middle school correspondence courses as well.  Students also decide to earn a high school diploma at home or complete their middle school education at home because they prefer to learn independently, free from the confinements and distractions of a traditional school setting.  We look forward to helping you become a star after you enroll and become our student!

National Distance Learning Week Begins Today

National Distance Learning Week begins today, and we're happy to be a leading distance education high school and distance education middle school.  Since our founding in 1897, we have helped more than three million students earn a high school diploma at home through various distance learning methods.  Distance learning allows students to study high school correspondence courses, online high school courses and online middle school courses when and where it is convenient for them.  Many students feel more comfortable working in a classroom of one, free from distractions that may occur in a traditional classroom setting.  If you're ready to try distance learning, we invite you to enroll today.  We'd be happy to have you as an American School student! 

Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend

Today's blog is a reminder that Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend.  You'll want to turn your clock back Saturday night before you go to bed and enjoy an extra hour of sleep.  If you haven't finished high school yet, you can turn back the clock and enroll with us.  We offer a general high school program for those who wish to join the workforce or attend a community college and a college preparatory program for those who wish to attend a four-year university after completing their accredited high school program.  You'll feel comfortable taking courses from a leading distance education high school, and our flexible schedule allows you to study any hour of the day or night, even during the extra hour you get this weekend!
