American School Scholarship Applications Mailed

Recently American School completed this year's scholarship eligibility process and mailed information and applications to those 2019 graduates who met all scholarship eligibility criteria.  This year we expanded the criteria to include graduates of our general high school program as well as our college preparatory program.  All of the applicants took high school correspondence courses or online high school courses with us, and we were happy to help them reach some of their educational goals.  The scholarships we offer will allow them to reach additional educational goals and receive the skills and training needed to be successful in the workforce.  We look forward to receiving their applications and reviewing them this spring.

New Physics Course Available

American School is pleased to announce that a new Physics course is available.  The course is perfect for students attempting to earn a high school diploma at home through our general high school program or college preparatory program.  Physics might also be useful for students in our independent study high school program who need to recover credits in order to graduate on time.  More information is available on our web site, or you can head over to our enrollment page and begin the enrollment process today!

Today’s Special Occasion: Valentine’s Day

It's February 14, and today is Valentine's Day.  It's the perfect occasion to tell you some of the things our students love about us.  Many of them like that we offer online high school courses and high school correspondence courses.  Others like that we have a general high school diploma program and a college preparatory program for students in grades 9-12.  Still others like that we have an accredited middle school program.  What people seem to love most, though, is that we offer students the ability to work at their own pace.  Students can work slowly in one subject if they need more time or move faster in a subject they master quickly.  It's entirely up to them.  Along the way, they'll have the support of our entire staff, including instructors who are highly qualified in their fields.  We're confident you'll love our school as much as we'll love having you as our student.  Show us some love and enroll today!

WSCA-ECU Scholarship Opportunity

Today we are sharing a scholarship opportunity from the Wisconsin School Counselor Association and Educators Credit Union.  They have teamed up to offer scholarships to certain Wisconsin residents who are graduating from high school this year.  Click the link above to learn more.  As we've said before, we try to notify students in our general high school program and college preparatory program of any scholarship opportunities that are available to them, but it is impossible for us to list all of them.  Check with your community to see what might be available to you.  As always, our caring student service staff and competent counseling staff will assist you if you need them.  We are happy you made us your distance education high school and look forward to you having more success after you earn a high school diploma at home from American School!

 

ISCA Scholarship Opportunity

Today's blog contains information about a scholarship from the Illinois School Counselor Association.  Click here to view the scholarship application and read about eligibility requirements.  The deadline for this scholarship is February 7.  We try to inform our students of scholarship opportunities, but it is impossible for us to list all of them.  We encourage students in our general high school program or college preparatory program who are about to earn a high school diploma at home to investigate scholarship opportunities in their community.  Shortly we will inform our students who graduated in 2019 if they are eligible to participate in our 2020 scholarship competition this spring.  As a reminder, American School scholarships are for graduates to continue their education at an accredited college or university of their choice.  Other scholarships from other organizations may have different rules, but at this time American School only gives scholarships for graduates attending college.  We do not offer financial aid to current students in our accredited high school program or accredited middle school program.  Thank you for your cooperation, and please remember to check this blog often for scholarship opportunities and other important news.

Winter Begins Tomorrow

It's December 20, and winter officially begins tomorrow.  It's the season most associated with cold, snow and ice, and so why not stay inside where it is warm and work on some American School courses?  Our accredited middle school program consists of 5 units of credit per year in grades 6, 7 and 8.  Each year contains one course in English, math, science and social studies, plus an elective.  If you're already completed middle school, you might be interested in our accredited high school program.  It also consists of 5 units of credit per year, and you'll have the flexibility to pick your own courses in either our general high school program or college preparatory program.  It is a great way to earn a high school diploma at home, but if you only want to take one or two courses, you may take individual courses in grades 6-12 as well.  All the information you need to get started is on our enrollment page, so check it out and get started today.  If you do, you could have a course or two complete by the first day of spring in March!

Today’s Anniversary: Burger King

It's December 4, and the very first Burger King opened in Miami on this date in 1954.  Burger King's most famous sandwich is the Whopper, but sometimes the word whopper can have negative connotations.  That's because one definition of a whopper is a lie.  Here at American School, we take our credibility very seriously.  Therefore, we do not lie to students, parents or counselors.  We value truthfulness in all communications, including our advertising efforts.  We know you have many choices if you wish to earn a high school diploma at home, and we don't want you to have any surprises after you enroll.  We are honest and give you all required information about our general high school program, college preparatory program and independent study high school program for students in grades 9-12 and our accredited middle school program for students in grades 6-8.  Our refund policy is clearly stated on our enrollment applications.  We are forthright about all costs you might incur during your enrollment period.  Don't be fooled by whoppers some of our competitors might tell you.  Enroll with us instead!
