AP Courses Enrollment Still Available

Today's blog is a reminder that we are offering Advanced Placement courses in United States Government and Politics, United States History, Biology, Calculus AB and English Language and Composition.  These online high school courses can be a great addition to an existing online high school diploma program, or they can be taken through our independent study high school program.  Click here for more information! 

Major Announcement Coming Monday

Need a reason to look forward to Monday?  We're happy to oblige.  Be sure to check this blog Monday morning for a major announcement for students in our accredited high school program or who are interested in taking accredited online high school courses as part of an independent study high school program.  We're excited to offer new courses and services for you, and we hope you'll be as excited about them as we are!

New Foods and Nutrition Course Available

American School is pleased to announce the debut of a new Foods and Nutrition course.  This course replaces our Food Study course and has 7 exams.  It may be taken as a full unit or half unit course.  We're pleased to offer Foods and Nutrition among our high school correspondence courses.  Students take these courses en route to a correspondence high school diploma or for credit recovery or enrichment through our independent study high school program.  Keep checking this blog often because we'll be adding more courses later this year.

American School to Attend ASCA Annual Conference

American School is pleased to exhibit at the ASCA Annual Conference next weekend in Denver.  School counselors from across the country are invited to visit us in booth 603 at the Colorado Convention Center on July 8 from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.; July 9 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and July 10 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.  We'll have information about our independent study high school program that allows students to take high school correspondence courses and online high school courses for credit recovery or enrichment.  Our online middle school courses have the same possibilities for students in grades 6-8.  In addition to our promotional items, guests at our booth have a chance to win a $100 Target gift card just for stopping by.  Stop by and see us.  We promise to do everything we can to make your students' experience with us anything but rocky!

Today’s Anniversary: Charles Lindbergh Ticker Tape Parade

It's June 13, and 90 years ago today, Charles Lindbergh received a ticker tape parade in New York City after he returned from his solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean.  His voyage was quite an accomplishment, and you can achieve something just as big after you enroll and become our student.  Maybe you feel like you can't get off the ground when it comes to your education.  We have online middle school courses now and will add paper middle school courses in the next couple months.  We also offer online high school courses and high school correspondence courses that you can take toward your high school diploma, either from us or from another accredited school through our independent study high school program.  We look forward to having you as our student and helping you soar to new heights along the way!    

2017 National Geographic Bee

The 2017 National Geographic Bee was held earlier this month and is now airing on PBS stations across the country.  If you watch the show, you'll be amazed at what these teenagers know, and you can try to match them by taking one of our geography courses.  We offer a paper-based World Geography course and an online Geography course.  You may take them to help get a correspondence high school diploma or online high school diploma.  You can also take them as part of an independent study high school program to recover credit at a public or private school you attend.  Both geography courses will help you find your way around the world and also bring you one step closer to your high school diploma.  Enroll today!   

Today’s Special Occasion: St. Patrick’s Day

It's March 17, and American School is celebrating St. Patrick's Day in a variety of ways.  First, did you know we offer a course in Irish?  It's one of more than 20 online high school courses in world languages that are part of our curriculum.  Irish would be a perfect addition to your online high school diploma program, or take the course for credit recovery or enrichment as part of an independent study high school program.  Since we are a non-profit school, we're able to save you some green as well.  We keep costs to an absolute minimum.  Most individual high school correspondence courses or online courses cost between $150 and $300 when taken individually, and a online high school diploma program or correspondence high school diploma program costs between $2250 and $3600.  You don't need the luck of the Irish to be our student.  Enroll today! 


Today’s Special Occasion: The Ides of March

It's March 15, also known as the Ides of March.  Today is the traditional date of the death of Julius Caesar, who was told to beware the Ides of March but went to the Roman Senate anyway and met his demise there.  You may think Latin is a dead language, but that's hardly the case.  Latin 1 can be beneficial to you in so many ways.  Not only will you learn about fascinating people like Julius Caesar, but you'll also learn about the many ways Latin has impacted the English language.  By the end of the course, you'll be a better writer, and the course can be beneficial if you plan a career in medicine or law.  Latin 1 is one of the high school correspondence courses that many other schools do not offer, but we do.  We offer a wide variety of courses that would be great fits in your college preparatory program or general high school program, or you can take them individually as part of our independent study high school program.  Make the Ides of March a day to remember and enroll today!


Today’s Special Occasion: Digital Learning Day

Today is Digital Learning Day, so it's the perfect opportunity for us to tell you about the many ways our students learn digitally.  Some enroll in our online high school diploma program, which consists entirely of online high school courses.  Others take accredited high school courses online on an individual basis, sometimes as part of an independent study high school program for credit recovery and other times to enrich an existing homeschool program.  Finally, some students take online middle school courses through our accredited middle school program.  Visit our online learning page to learn more!
