Today’s Anniversary: A National Debt of Zero Dollars

It's January 8, and on this date in 1835, the national debt was zero dollars for the first and only time in American history.  Contast that with the current national debt, which is more than 20 trillion dollars, and you'll see why having a national debt of zero dollars was such a big deal.  Nobody wants to go into debt, and so American School offers very affordable tuition prices.  A year of courses in our accredited high school program or accredited middle school program is $900.  The tuition includes all study materials, grading, access to the online student center and much more.  Our standard payment plan consists of a $200 down payment followed by five monthly payments of $140 each until the entire $900 balance for the year is paid.  When you factor in everything, we believe we offer the most affordable program anywhere.  Students who take individual subjects, perhaps as part of an independent study high school program, can expect to pay between $150 and $400 per course, and they receive the same benefits as those listed above minus the payment plan.  We ask that students who take individual subjects may in full at the time of enrollment.  No matter what program you choose, we will do our best to ensure you don't go into debt paying for it!
