Today’s Anniversary: Spam

It's July 5, and the luncheon meat Spam made its debut on this date in 1937.  Today spam is synonymous with junk email.  Email from people in our correspondence high school diploma program, online high school diploma program, accredited middle school program or independent study program is not junk, but sometimes it winds up in our spam filter by mistake.  Rest assured that we check the spam filter multiple times a day and unjunk any mail that may wind up in there accidentally.  To give yourself a better chance of not being in the spam filter, please included a detailed subject line, and in the body of the email, put your full name and student number and be as detailed as possible with your question.  We'll do our best to read your email and reply within one business day.  Thank you for your cooperation!

American School Closed July 4

American School will be closed Wednesday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.  We will reopen on Thursday, July 5, with normal business hours and look forward to answering your questions about our general high school program, college preparatory program, independent study program or accredited middle school program at that time.  We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday!

American School and Earth Day

Because April 22 falls on a Sunday this year, we're celebrating Earth Day a couple days early in our blog.  American School is proud to have an office recycling program which helps save and protect the environment, and we're also proud to offer online high school courses and high school correspondence courses that discuss the earth and environment in great detail.  Check out our full list of science courses for more information.  Because we're a non-profit institution, we're able to help you save another kind of green.  We keep costs to an absolute minimum, and we include all study materials in our tuition.  We'd be happy to have you in our general high school program, college preparatory program, independent study program or middle school program.  Enroll today!  

Today’s Anniversary: The Washington Post

It's December 6, and on this date in 1877, the first edition of the Washington Post was published.  In its 140 years, the newspaper has been home to legendary journalists such as Katharine Graham, Ben Bradlee, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein and Tony Kornheiser.  If you're interested in a career in journalism, consider taking our paper-based journalism course or our online journalism course.  Either would be a great addition to your accredited high school program or independent study program.  Be sure to check this blog often for any breaking news from the American School.  We'll keep you posted on all the exciting things we have coming up in 2018!
