Today’s Anniversary: Sliced Bread

It's July 7, and on this date in 1928, the Chillicothe Baking Company in Missouri became the first bakery to sell sliced bread.  Today we take sliced bread for granted.  Most loaves of white, wheat, rye or pumpernickel are already sliced when we purchase them, but before 1928, that wasn't the case.  If you wanted sliced bread, you'd have to slice it yourself!  You may be familiar with the expression "greatest thing since sliced bread" and we think you'll be saying that after you become an American School student.  We offer fully accredited high school courses in both online and paper-based formats.  We even offer online exams in most of our paper-based courses.  That way, you can learn in the way that is the most effective for you.  You'll also work at your own pace and have the full support of our staff.  Finally, you and your family won't spend a lot of "bread" because, as a non-profit institution, we keep tuition to an absolute minimum.  Visit our enrollment page to get started.
