Today’s Anniversary: Chicago

It's March 4, and Chicago was incorporated as a city on this date in 1837.  That's 60 years before the American School was founded in Boston, but for most of our 122-year history, we had our headquarters in the city of Chicago itself.  Today we're located in the far south suburbs of Chicago, but for nearly 90 years our headquarters were near the campus of the University of Chicago on the city's south side.  From there, we helped thousands of students earn a correspondence high school diploma, and in our new location, we continue to offer high school correspondence courses but also offer a high school diploma online for adults or children as well as an accredited middle school program.  Chicago has evolved over the last 182 years, and the American School has evolved over time as well.  Stay tuned for more information on how we will evolve later in 2019!
