It's September 7, and on this date in 1921, the very first Miss America Pageant was held in Atlantic City, New Jersey. We know that selecting a distance education high school or middle school for yourself or a family member is like viewing a beauty pageant in some regards. You, as a member of the distinguished panel of judges, call schools or view schools' web sites, and each school you call or visit tries to put its best foot forward to win your approval. Instead of swimsuit, evening gown, interview and talent, American School gets high marks in offering a wide variety of accredited high school courses in online and paper-based formats as well as online middle school courses. We also get points for caring student service, nearly 120 years of credibility and our very reasonable cost. When you look at us closely, we deserve the crown that goes with educating you or family member. In return, you'll earn a high school diploma at home, complete full years in grades 6-8, or take individual courses for credit recovery or enrichment. Take the first step down the runway toward the rest of your life and enroll today!
