It's May 1, sometimes referred to as May Day.  The phrase "mayday!" is often a cry for help in times of great distress, and maybe you've been in distress when it comes to your education.  Perhaps you dropped out of high school years ago and are now interested in an online high school diploma for adults or an accredited high school program made up of high school correspondence courses.  Maybe you're in desperate need of some of the best online high school courses or paper-based high school courses to make up credits and graduate on time with your class.  Either way, American School has the accredited courses you need at a cost you can afford.  Visit our enrollment page to learn more!

Today’s Anniversary: Scotch Tape

It's September 8, and 3M began marketing scotch tape on this date in 1930.  Scotch tape has many uses, but it is especially popular when it comes to wrapping birthday or Christmas presents.  Think of the best present or gift that you ever received.  Did it bring happiness to your life?  Probably.  Did it radically change your life for the better?  Maybe.  A high school diploma is the gift that keeps on giving.  Over time, people with a paper-based or online high school diploma earn hundreds of thousands of dollars more than their peers who do not have their diplomas.  An online high school diploma for adults or children or a correspondence high school diploma for adults or children can help you have the life you've always wanted.  In turn, your children and your family will have a better life.  Scotch tape also is transparent, and so is American School.  The terms and conditions of your enrollment in our accredited high school program are clearly described on the enrollment application, and there will be no surprises or hidden fees along the way.  Enroll today, and within four years you'll be able to unwrap the best gift of all: a high school diploma from American School.

Reminder About Online Courses

We're grateful to have so many new students in our accredited online high school courses and accredited online middle school courses, but we wish to offer the following reminder.  Once your application has been received, we must process the application, enter your personal information and financial information into our system, and then place you in a section of the online course.  The whole process takes a little bit of time, and so you will not receive instant access to your online courses right after you enroll.  You should, however, be ready to begin your online courses within a week of submitting your enrollment application.  Thank you for your cooperation and for enrolling in a school offering individual middle school or high school courses, a full middle school program and an online high school diploma for adults or children.  We are happy to have you as our students!
