Today's blog is a reminder that we are offering Advanced Placement courses in United States Government and Politics, United States History, Biology, Calculus AB and English Language and Composition.  These online high school courses can be a great addition to an existing online high school diploma program, or they can be taken through our independent study high school program.  Click here for more information! 

American School Offers AP Courses

American School is pleased to offer five online Advanced Placement (AP) courses for the 2017-2018 academic year.  To ensure that students have sufficient time to learn material and prepare for their AP exams next spring, enrollment in these online high school courses is only available from September 11-29, with classes scheduled to start the first week of October.  All classes must be completed by April 27.  If you wish to enroll in our AP courses, either as a new student or as a current student who is adding courses to an existing correspondence high school diploma program or online high school diploma program, please read the link above and then send us an email to begin the enrollment process.  We look forward to serving you and think our AP courses are a great addition to our accredited high school program!    

Today’s Birthday: Wayne Osmond

It's August 28, and entertainer Wayne Osmond turns 66 years old today.  American School is proud to be the school of choice for many members of the Osmond family, including Wayne and his siblings Donny and Marie.  When the Osmonds were our students, just had a correspondence high school diploma program.  We didn't have an online high school diploma program or online middle school courses, but now we do.  It's just one example of how American School has adapted with the changing times to meet the needs of all of our students.  Soon we'll be introducing even more new courses.  Keep checking this blog often for updates!  

Today’s Anniversary: Helium

It's August 18, and French scientist Pierre Jules Janseen discovered helium on this date in 1868.  You can learn more about this element by taking some of our science courses.  They're available as accredited online high school courses or accredited high school correspondence courses.  Take them individually through our independent study high school program, or take them as part of our correspondence or online high school diploma program.  Either way, we look forward to you blowing up balloons with helium to celebrate graduating from high school!  

American School Staff Receives First Aid Training

Today American School welcomes the American Red Cross to our building.  Several of our employees are receiving training in first aid and CPR so that we can keep fellow employees as safe and healthy as possible in case of any type of emergency.  If you're interested in learning a bit more about first aid and CPR, consider taking one of our health courses.  You can find them among our online high school courses and high school correspondence courses.  They are great additions to your online high school diploma program or correspondence high school diploma program, or you may take them individually for credit recovery or enrichment.

Today’s Special Occasion: Flag Day

It's June 14, and we're celebrating Flag Day.  As you might imagine, with the word American in our name, we're proud to fly the flag outside of our distance education high school offices.  We're proud to live in a country that grants its citizens many freedoms, including the choice to attend school wherever they choose.  We offer an online high school diploma program and a correspondence high school diploma program for students in grades 9-12.  We also offer an accredited middle school program for students in grades 6-8.  It is our hope that one day you'll display your American School diploma as proudly as you display the American flag.  Enroll today!


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!
