Scholarship Opportunity Available

From time to time we like to inform our students of scholarship opportunities beyond the ones we award each year.  Today we are featuring the Work Ethic Scholarship Program.  The link on this page contains all the information you need to apply.  We're proud to have so many talented students in our distance education high school.  One of the nice things about taking accredited high school courses with us is that we offer a general high school program for students who wish to join the workforce or attend a two-year college after graduating and a college prep program for students who plan to attend a four-year university after graduating.  Both options are available in our online high school diploma program and our paper-based high school diploma program.  

 

Reminder About Restarting With American School

Today's blog focuses on restarting your accredited online high school diploma program or accredited high school program with high school correspondence courses with American School.  We know that most people complete high school in four years or less, but we also know that sometimes life gets in the way and you can't complete yoru full general high school program or college preparatory program in that time.  Whether you've been gone a short time or even years, you can restart right where you left off and still earn your online high school diploma or correspondence high school diploma.  Just call us or send us an email or letter and explain your situation.  Be sure to have your name at the time you were enrolled, your address and phone number and your American School student number ready and we'll be happy to help you get started again.  We look forward to helping you earn your American School diploma no matter how old you might be or how many years have passed by since you took the first step and enrolled with us.  

Today’s Special Occasion: Siblings Day

It's April 10, and today our blog is celebrating Siblings Day.  You may know that more than three million students have earned a high school diploma thanks to our accredited high school courses, and we're willing to bet that many of our graduates are siblings of other American School graduates.  Once one family member enrolls in our online high school diploma program or correspondence high school diploma program, other family members see that student succeed and then decide to enroll too.  We're pleased to serve many siblings and count them among our graduates.  To make the same thing happen in your household, we invite you to enroll today! 

Today’s Special Occasion: Opening Day

It's April 3, and today is Opening Day for most Major League Baseball teams.  There is something about Opening Day that brings optimism to all 30 teams and their fans, but maybe you haven't felt optimistic about your educational plans for a long time.  Don't worry.  Let today be your personal Opening Day with American School by becoming our student.  In addition to individual subjects for credit recovery or enrichment, we offer an online high school diploma program, a correspondence high school diploma program and an accredited middle school program consisting of online middle school courses.  Right off the bat you'll get one or two courses with others to follow, and our instructors and support staff will do whatever they can to ensure you knock it out of the park as you work toward reaching your educational goals.  Make today an Opening Day to remember and enroll with us!     

American School FAFSA Code Information

If you're an American School student or graduate filling out a FAFSA form, you may be asked for our high school code.  That code is 07016272Y010000.  We know that's long and not particularly easy to remember, which is why we've added that information to our FAQ page.  That page contains answers to frequently asked questions from people who are interested in our online high school diploma program, correspondence high school diploma program and accredited middle school program which currently consists of online middle school courses.  We are grateful to all of our students and graduates and hope you will check our FAQ page if you have a question. 

Today’s Special Occasion: The First Day of Spring

It's March 20, and today is the first day of spring.  Of all the seasons, spring is associated with new beginnings.  The weather is getting warmer, birds have begun chirping, and flowers are beginning to bloom.  If you need a new beginning for your education, there is no better day than today to enroll.  American School offers an online high school diploma program, a correspondence high school diploma program, an accredited middle school program, and individual courses for credit recovery or enrichment.  Let your potential blossom and make the first day of spring one to remember.  Become our student 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 Anniversary: Florida

It's March 3, and Florida became a state on this date in 1845.  We always enjoy visiting Florida, and not just for the weather.  Each year we go to a major homeschool convention in Florida, and sometimes other national conventions decide to hold their shows in the Sunshine State.  At each show we promote our online high school diploma program consisting of online high school courses, our accredited middle school program consisting of online middle school courses (and, later this year, traditional paper-based courses) and our correspondence high school diploma program consisting of high school correspondence courses.  We want students' futures to be as bright as the Florida sky, and we're happy to help them reach all of their educational goals!
