It's August 8, and on this date in 1876, Thomas Edison received a patent for the mimeograph. A mimeograph is a kind of copy machine that produces duplicates by using stencils. As you might imagine, it's not conducive to printing in bulk, which is why American School uses some of the most sophisticated machines out there to print study guides and exam booklets for students who take our high school correspondence courses. Other items we print include letters, enrollment applications, forms, booklets, envelopes and occasionally textbooks themselves for students in our correspondence high school diploma program. Of course, students who take our accredited online high school courses or online middle school courses don't receive quite as much material on paper from us, but we know some students and families like to receive everything on paper, and so we're proud to offer courses in a variety of formats. To take advantage of these diverse course delivery methods, enroll today!
