Halloween is tomorrow, so we thought today we'd say "trick or treat" and look at some common misconceptions (tricks) and benefits (treats) associated with being an American School student. First, sometimes people are leery about enrolling because they don't know if we're accredited. In fact, we're accredited by MSA-CESS, Ai and NCPSA and recognized by the State of Illinois as a non-public high school. Second, sometimes people are afraid of homeschooling because they think their children will have to work all by themselves and have no support from us. Not so. We have qualified instructors who grade students' exams and are available to answer students' questions along the way. We also have an entire staff ready and willing to answer a variety of requests from students and parents and give you outstanding service. Third, sometimes people might think there are hidden fees along the way. Again, this isn't true. Nobody likes hidden fees, and our tuition includes the cost of all study materials, including textbooks for our paper-based courses. We have a monthly payment plan and a generous refund policy if you are not satisfied with the education we provide you. And finally, sometimes people are scared of homeschooling because they think they have to do things on a certain schedule. One of the biggest treats you'll receive after you enroll is that you work entirely on your schedule at at your own pace. You can take as much or as little time as you need to complete a unit, an exam and a subject. It's entirely up to you. It would be a real treat for us to serve you as you work toward your high school diploma. You won't have a ghost of a chance at success without one, so enroll today!
Happy Halloween from American School
