Yogi Berra, one of the greatest baseball players of all-time, died earlier this week, and while his 3 MVPs and 10 World Series titles while a catcher for the New York Yankees are certainly noteworthy, we're going to use this blog to share some "Yogi-isms" with you. "Yogi-isms" are comments attributed to Yogi Berra that may not make sense on the surface but in fact carry a lot of wisdom. Here are some examples and how they might relate to your American School career. "When you see a fork in the road, take it." We realize you have many choices for your education. You can go to public school, private school, charter school, another distance education provider, or enroll with us. We think that, with our curriculum, cost, caring student service and credibility, American School is the fork in the road that you should take to earn your accredited high school diploma. "You can observe a lot by watching." This is true. Many of our online and paper-based courses have supplemental video material that you can watch to help you with your studies. "It's deja vu all over again." Despite their best efforts, sometimes our students do not pass their exams. Instead of giving them failing grades, we give them alternate exams to complete. Many of the exams will contain similar-looking questions to those on the original exam, but our students shouldn't despair. Instead, they should review their study materials, including the graded original exam, to help with the alternate exam. Finally, "it ain't over till it's over." This is most definitely true. We've seen students of all ages and all walks of life enroll because they want to become high school graduates. Don't let anyone tell you your dream of becoming a high school graduate is over. We accept enrollments year-round and are ready to help you earn your diploma. For more "Yogi-isms" and to learn more about Yogi Berra himself, we encourage you to visit the Yoga Berra Museum and Learning Center.
