It's October 8, and on this date in 1871, the Great Chicago Fire started. The fire raged for more than two days and destroyed the entire city with the exception of the old Water Tower and a couple other buildings which are still standing today. The anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire is an opportunity to remind you that, should disaster strike American School's building in the far south suburbs of Chicago, your educational records would not perish. In fact, they'd be totally safe and secure because our record system is backed up on a regular basis, and those records are kept at a secure site away from our physical property. It's another reason why you should feel confident in enrolling and earning your accredited high school diploma from us.
