Middle School Information Brochure

 

American School has long offered the accredited high school courses you need at a cost you can afford, but now we are pleased to offer accredited middle school courses in print and online formats as well.

A full year of middle school for grade 6, 7 or 8 consists of 5 units of credit–one each in English, math, science and social studies plus an elective–at a cost of $900.  Students may choose the course delivery method that is most comfortable to them–all print, all online, or a combination of the two.  Tuition includes all study materials, grading, access to the Online Student Center and more.  Monthly payment plans are available for students in full year middle school programs. 

Individual subjects in grades 6, 7 and 8 to enrich an existing homeschool program or for credit recovery cost $300 for a full unit of credit and $250 for a half unit of credit, with the exception of honors courses, which cost $400 for a full unit of credit and $350 for a half unit of credit.  Tuition for individual subjects is due in full at the time of enrollment and includes all study materials, grading, access to the Online Student Center and more.  Any course listed on this page may be taken individually to enrich an existing homeschool program or as an option for credit recovery.

We hope you find the contents of this page useful and choose to enroll in our print or online middle school courses.  We believe they are the perfect complement to the print and online high school courses that we have offered for years.  Scroll down to learn more about our middle school courses or contact us to receive more information.
