It's the Friday before the Super Bowl, and we assume many of you will be watching the New England Patriots play the Atlanta Falcons for the NFL championship Sunday night. We're not going to pick a winner, but we will tell you about our ties to New England and Atlanta. R.T. Miller and his colleagues founded American School in Boston in 1897, so although we have been based in or near Chicago for more than a century, we consider Boston, and by extension New England, our original home. R.T. Miller couldn't have imagined his school would offer online middle school courses and online high school courses, but we offer those and high school correspondence courses and promote them each year at a major convention in Atlanta. We always enjoy visiting the Peach State and enjoying southern hospitality, but we attend conventions all around the country all year long. Enjoy the game this weekend and check back later this month to see where our first convention of 2017 will be. Hint: It's in the home state of a team that has won four Super Bowls, including the very first two!
