American School Annual Inventory Process Underway

Today's blog is about American School's annual inventory process.  Each year we do an inventory of materials in our warehouse.  Specifically we look at textbooks and study guides used by students in our middle school and high school correspondence courses.  The whole inventory process takes about a week, and shipments for your middle school or high school correspondence class may be delayed during this time.  We appreciate your patience, and you should have your course materials shortly.  Inventory is important to the overall success of American School.  We want to make sure we have enough materials on hand and can ship you the course materials you need without having you endure a long wait for them.  Thank you for your patience and understanding and for making us your distance education high school or middle school.

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.  

2020 Convention #2: Texas Homeschool Convention

Testimonial Thursday

Today we have a testimonial from Molly in Oregon.  She writes, "American School is outstanding!  While I was studying high school I was able to work at my own pace and manage my own time so I could have a job and graduate early.  In addition to that, the material is put in a way I could easily understand, and I learned so much more because of that.  I would recommend the American School to anyone interested in preparing themselves for a better future."  We thank Molly for those thoughts.  Many of our students enroll in our print or online high school diploma program and hold full-time or part-time jobs like Molly did.  We offer students the flexibility to work in a high school correspondence class or in online high school courses whenever it's convenient for them.  Our accredited middle school program offers similar flexibility.  To experience the same benefits Molly did, we invite you to enroll today!    

New Biology Course Available

New Algebra 1 Course Available

American School is pleased to announce that a new Algebra 1 course is now available to students.  This high school correspondence class also may be suitable for students who wish to take Algebra 1 as part of an accredited middle school program.  We are always working to update our middle school and high school correspondence courses, and soon we'll reveal a new platform for our online middle school courses and online high school courses.  We want to give our students the best education possible, and that means we're constantly revising courses, adding brand new courses and, in some rare instances, dropping courses.  We're excited about our course offerings, and when you combine outstanding curriculum with affordable all-inclusive tuition, American School should be your school of choice.  Make the right choice and enroll today!    

Today’s Anniversary: The United States Census

It's March 1, and on this date in 1790, the first United States Census was authorized.  The United States Census is taken every ten years in years that end in zero, so next year's event once again will count every person living in the United States.  That got us thinking about how we count our students here at the American School.  Every student who enrolls in a middle school or high school correspondence class or in one of our online middle school courses or online high school courses is given a student number in order of his or her enrollment.  Over the years we've educated more than 3 million students in all 50 states and more than 65 countries around the world.  Some students take multiple courses as part of a print or online high school diploma program, while others take just one course as part of an independent study high school program, but every student is more than a number to us.  We offer personalized attention in distance education and would be happy to count you among our students.  You can join us by enrolling today!  

American School Debuts New Speech Course

American School is pleased to introduce a new Speech course that will be a great addition to our high school correspondence courses.  The course features many examples of famous historical speeches and will give students the opportunity to write speeches of their own.  Along the way students will learn poise and ethics and ultimately become better public speakers.  If you are a current student and wish to add this high school correspondence class to your accredited high school program, please let us know.  If you are a new student who wishes to take this course, we invite you to enroll today.

Today’s Birthday: John Hancock

It's January 23, and originally we weren't going to have a blog post today, but plans changed and so here we are.  American statesman John Hancock was born on this date in 1737.  You've probably seen his signature many times because it's by far the largest one on the Declaration of Independence.  The birthday of the man with perhaps the most famous signature in American history is a good time to remind you to put your name and student number on every page of every exam you send us, whether it's a high school correspondence class or a middle school correspondence class.  Thousands of exams come into our building every day, and we want to make sure the exams you send us for your high school correspondence courses or middle school correspondence courses stay together and don't get lost.  Following the completion of all of your accredited high school courses online or on paper, we look forward to putting your name and our signature on your transcript and/or diploma!
