Today’s Special Occasion: World Teachers’ Day

October 5 is World Teachers' Day, and there's no better occasion to thank them and to tell you a little bit about the instructors who grade our students' exams.  All of them have at least 24 hours of college credit in the subjects they grade.  Many of them have advanced degrees, and many have years of hands-on experience in the subjects they grade.  We ask that our instructors make distance education as personal as possible.  That means they call students by name and write detailed comments on every exam they grade, whether it's a traditional paper exam, an online exam in one of our paper-based courses, or an exam in one of our online courses.  They are also available to assist via phone, email or letter whenever our students need assistance.  Enroll today and experience the benefit of our outstanding instructors as you work toward your accredited high school diploma!

Today’s Special Occasion: MLB All-Star Game

If you read last Friday's blog entry, you know that the American School Blog celebrated its 9th birthday just four days ago.  The subject of our very first blog entry on July 11, 2006, was the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which was being played that night in Pittsburgh.  Tonight's game is in Cincinnati, and even back when we attended a convention there in April, the Queen City was already abuzz with excitement.  Although we've added many online courses and launched online diploma programs and made other positive changes since our first blog was published, some of the other themes of our first blog entry remain the same.  You can still become an academic all-star after you enroll with us.  That's because we allow students to work entirely at their own pace and provide students with detailed feedback from our qualified instructors.  We can't guarantee that you'll hit it out of the park on every test, but we can guarantee that through hard work and perseverance, one day you will cross home plate with your accredited high school diploma.
