Today’s Anniversary: The First MLB All-Star Game

It's July 6, and the first Major League Baseball All-Star Game occurred on this date in 1933.  The game was held at Comiskey Park in Chicago, not too far from our current office in Lansing, Illinois, and very close to our former office in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago.  The Major League Baseball All-Star Game has always been important to this blog because the very first American School blog entry came on July 11, 2006 and focused on the MLB All-Star Game that was happening that night in Pittsburgh.  The theme of that first blog and this blog nearly 14 years later is that you can become an all-star when you enroll in American School courses.  We allow students to work at their own pace in their print or online high school courses and print or online middle school courses.  Working at your own pace allows you to master the material at a rate that is comfortable for you.  You won't fall behind if your classmates move on, and you won't be held back if your classmates need to spend more time on material.  When you work at your own pace, you can do your best on exams, projects and discussion boards and ultimately get higher grades.  If you want to earn a high school diploma at home, step up to the plate and enroll with us today.  We think you'll knock it out of the park as an American School student, and we'd be happy to serve you!
