New English 12 Course Available

American School is pleased to announce that a new English 12 course is available to students.  This high school correspondence class is a senior-level English course that would be a great fit in an accredited high school program whether it's a general high school program or a college preparatory program.  This new course also can be valuable to students who wish to recover credit through our independent study high school program and graduate on time with their classmates at a traditional school.  We are constantly developing new courses or revising current ones in order to give our students the best educational experience we can.  Check back tomorrow to read about another new course we are happy to offer to our students.  

Writing Respectful Emails

Today's blog is about writing respectful emails.  We understand that there might be some frustrating moments as you work through your accredited middle school program, accredited high school program or independent study high school program.  Those moments, however, are not an excuse for you to write an email to us that contains profanity.  We are under no obligation to reply to emails which include profanity or which do not respect our staff.  On the other hand, we are happy to assist you if you politely tell us your name, student number and specific problem you're having.  You can expect assistance within one business day, as is our policy when replying to emails.  Thank you for your cooperation. 

Better Business Bureau Reaccredits American School

American School is pleased to announce reaccreditation by the Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois.  American School has been a BBB member since 1934, and we are proud of our 86-year affiliation with the Better Business Bureau.  We are also proud of our A+ Better Business Bureau Rating.  The A+ rating and our long history with the Better Business Bureau indicate that we are honest in our business dealings.  If you enroll in our accredited high school program, accredited middle school program or independent study high school program, you will get a quality education from a reputable business.  Get started by enrolling today!  

2020 Convention #13: THSC Called to Teach Convention The Woodlands (Cancelled)

This week American School was scheduled to attend the Texas Homeschool Coalition Called to Teach Convention in The Woodlands, but that convention has been cancelled.  We always enjoy attending this convention and were excited to share information about our accredited middle school program and accredited high school program with those who were traveling to the Houston area for this event.  We also would have had information about taking our courses on an individual basis to enrich an existing homeschool program, and we certainly would have had plenty of our promotional items to distribute as well.  We look forward to reetuning to The Woodlands in 2021, but in the meantime, we'd be happy to be your distance education high school or middle school.  Enroll today!

American School to Participate in Second Homeschool Connect Expo

American School is pleased to participate in the online Homeschool Connect Expo which is being held from May 27-31.  Three similar events are scheduled for later this year.  Visitors to our page will learn more about our accredited high school program, accredited middle school program and independent study high school program from the comforts of their home.  It's a great way for us to introduce ourselves to people who might not be able to visit us at a convention this year.  Whether in person or online, we look forward to meeting you and serving your educational needs after you make us your school of choice!

Online Exams Available in Spanish 2

Today's blog announces that online exams are now available for our paper-based Spanish 2 course.  As we have noted in previous blogs, we try to make online exams available in our middle school and high school correspondence courses.  Students like the hybrid of learning in a traditional way, using textbooks and study guides as if they were in a classroom, and taking exams in a modern way, which ensures exams get here quickly and safely.  Online exams are available in most paper-based courses as part of an accredited high school program, independent study high school program or accredited middle school program.  Keep them in mind.  We think you'll like them!

2020 Convention #11: FWAHS Resource Expo (Cancelled)

This weekend American School was scheduled to visit Fort Wayne for the Fort Wayne Area Home Schools' Resource Expo on Saturday, May 16, but the event was cancelled.  The convention was scheduled to be held at the Plassman Athletic Center at Turnstone for the first time, but now we hope to see many of you there in 2021.  Because Fort Wayne is in northeastern Indiana, it's not uncommon for people from Michigan or Ohio to attend the show, and we always enjoy meeting people who stop by our booth to learn about our accredited middle school program and accredited high school program.  Just last year a family who regularly follows us on Facebook stopped by our table, and we were happy to meet them in person.  Come join us next year in Fort Wayne.  We look forward to meeting you and serving you after you enroll and make us your distance education high school or middle school.  

Happy Mother’s Day

Today is the Friday before Mother's Day, and so we want to wish all mothers and those who act as mothers a very happy Mother's Day.  We realize that some American School students might be mothers themselves, and we are proud of them for continuing their education.  We also know that mothers play a major role in their children's education, and we want to thank those moms who have made American School their school of choice for their children.  People enroll with us for a variety of reasons, but mothers often like the fact that students can work at their own pace in their accredited middle school program, accredited high school program or independent study high school program.  They also like that American School staff is available to answer any questions or provide assistance along the way.  Finally, mothers have often been impressed by our affordable cost and monthly payment plan which prevents financial concerns from getting in the way of an education.  No matter their reasons for enrolling, we are happy to have their children as our students and hope all American School moms have a great day on Sunday!

American School Trustees Hold Quarterly Meeting

American School Trustees held their quarterly meeting yesterday.  Normally this meeting is held in person and in conjunction with our scholarship meeting, but current circumstances mandated that yesterday's meeting take place via conference call.  The scholarship meeting had previously been moved to this summer.  The quarterly trustee meetings are important because they are occasions for trustees to review previous activities, ask questions about the current state of the School and plan for the future.  Offering an accredited high school program, accredited middle school program and independent study high school program with outstanding customer service at an affordable cost is always foremost on the minds of our trustees, and we are grateful for their leadership and support.
