Remembering President John F. Kennedy

It's November 22, and on this date in 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.  People who were alive on that day 56 years ago likely remember exactly where they were when they heard the terrible news.  President Kennedy's memory is kept alive at several places, most notably his presidential library in Boston.  It's not too far from where American School was founded in 1897, and when President Kennedy was in office, we only offered high school correspondence courses.  We still offer those, but now we offer online high school courses and print and online middle school courses as well.  Visiting presidential libraries or perhaps visiting President Kennedy's grave and the graves of other American heroes at Arlington National Cemetery can help bring your courses to life, so we encourage you to look for those kinds of opportunities both near and far from your home.
