Today’s Anniversary: College Graduation

It's May 17, and on this date a little while back, the person who regularly writes this blog graduated from college.  The name and location of the university isn't important, but if you're a regular reader of this blog you can probably figure that out.  What's important is that graduating from this particular college was the fulfillment of a childhood dream, and choosing the correct high school played an enormous role in making that dream come true.  Perhaps you're reading this blog and you're currently an American School student.  You and your family have already made the choice to use our curriculum, either our general high school program or our college preparatory program in particular, and for that, we thank you.  If you are reading this blog and still undecided about enrolling with us, we invite you to look around our web site and determine if the American School is best for you.  We offer online high school courses as well as high school correspondence courses, and doing so ensures students can take courses in the delivery method they want.  We understand the merits of both public and private high schools, but at the same time we believe we bring something different to the table, namely the ability for the student to work in a classroom of one, free from distractions.  Working in a classroom of one allows the student to work entirely at his or her own pace.  You won't be far ahead of the teacher's pace or lag far behind.  You create your own pace, sometimes faster in one subject, sometimes slower in another, but entirely yours.  That's just one of the benefits of becoming an American School student, and there are many more.  Rest assured that American School graduates go on to attend some of the nation's leading colleges and universities, and we reward those students each year by awarding $21,000 in scholarships to 18 graduates.  You'll be able to read them and their future plans in the coming weeks after we announce this year's winners.  Perhaps one day you'll be one of them after you earn your diploma in our accredited high school program.
