Today’s Anniversary: The Great Chicago Fire

It's October 10, and on this date in 1871, the Great Chicago Fire was finally extinguished after burning since the evening of October 8.  Nearly the whole city was destroyed, but at least two of the buildings that survived the fire are still standing on Michigan Avenue downtown.  In the 146 years since, the world has evolved in so many ways, set in many ways we remain powerless against natural disasters such as fires, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes.  If you are taking our accredited high school courses or are a student in our accredited middle school program and have been affected by a natural disaster, please let us know.  We are ready to support you in every way we can.

Today’s Anniversary: Sputnik

It's October 4, and 60 years ago today, Sputnik, the first artificial satellite to orbit the earth, was launched.  If you're ready to lift off and reach new heights as a middle school or high school student, today would be a great day to enroll.  We offer an accredited middle school program and accredited high school program to suit every need.   Enroll in our college preparatory program if you plan on attending a four-year college or our general high school program if you plan on attending a community college and/or joining the workforce after graduation.  You can even enroll in our independent study high school program to recover credits from a local public or private high school.  No matter which you choose, we're confident you'll have an out of this world experience as our student!

Today’s Special Occasion: The First Day of Autumn

It's September 22, and today is the first day of autumn.  People equate autumn with colors changing, leaves falling, harvests and pumpkins and going back to school.  Perhaps you're ready to begin an accredited middle school program or accredited high school program, or maybe you were in one before but didn't complete your studies.  Either way, today is a great day to enroll!  In addition to being the first day of autumn, today also is one week from the deadline to enroll in our AP courses for the 2017-18 academic year.  These online high school courses would be great additions to your curriculum and could give you college credit, so please considering enrolling in one or more of them.    

Today’s Anniversary: Old Faithful

It's September 18, and on this date in 1870, explorers in Wyoming oberserved a geyser that erupted on a regular basis throughout the day.  Because it seemingly erupted on a schedule, they named it Old Faithful, and visitors to Yellowstone National Park can see this geyser in action to this very day.  When it comes to distance education high schools, American School is like Old Faithful.  We're reliable, offering 120 years of experience in offering accredited high school courses.  Within the last year we added an accredited middle school program to our curriculum which will help us serve even more students.  If you're ready to receive education from a school which has been faithful to its students and mission for more than a century, we invite you to enroll today!
