2019 Convention #11: OCHEC Convention

As has been the case several times so far in 2019, this weekend we're attending two conventions.  The first is the Oklahoma Home Educators Convention in Oklahoma City.  We'll be at the Cox Convention Center on May 2 from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on May 3 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Stop by and learn about our print or online college preparatory program and our print or online general high school program, both of which lead to a student earning an accredited high school diploma.  We'll also have information about our accredited middle school program and are happy to share how families take our courses on an individual basis to supplement an existing homeschool program.  We hope that you'll see us sooner or later in the Sooner State and decide to make us your distance education high school or middle school.  Check back later this week to learn where else we're headed this weekend.

Today’s Birthday: Coach K

It's February 13, and Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski turns 72 years old today.  Better known as Coach K, he has led Duke to five national championships and served as head coach of the United States Olympic teams that won gold medals in 2008, 2012 and 2016.  Basketball aside, Duke is consistently ranked among the nation's top universities, and it's not uncommon for American School graduates to attend high-quality universities all across the country.  Sometimes people think that students who earn a high school diploma at home have no chance at being accepted to elite schools.  That is simply not true.  Each college has its own admissions criteria.  Often schools will look at a student's academic record, extracurricular activities, test scores and more while deciding whether or not to accept the student.  Choosing the right college is not a slam dunk for most students, but our print or online college preparatory program offers you the accredited high school courses you need to be successful at whatever school interests you. Our guidance department is here to assist you if you have any questions about the college admissions process, and we're proud to offer scholarships to some of our graduates who wish to further their educations at accredited schools.  We are here to help you become successful both in high school and beyond, so tip off your American School career by enrolling with us today!  

Last Day To Enroll in AP Courses for 2018-19

It's September 28, and today is the deadline to enroll in AP courses for the 2018-19 school year.  You can find an enrollment application and other information on our AP page.  AP courses have been a great addition to our curriculum.  Students have added them to their online college preparatory program or have taken them as part of an independent study high school program.  While today is the last day to enroll in AP courses for this school year, we're already thinking about the 2019-20 school year.  We plan to reopen enrollment in AP courses in July 2019, and we may even add a few new AP courses to our curriculum.  Stay tuned as we are always striving to become an even better distance education high school!
