It's January 27, and the University of Georgia was founded on this date in 1785. We don't have any particular ties to UGA, but we feature it in our blog today because it is the first public university in the United States. That got us thinking about colleges and universities, and each year American School graduates who earn a high school diploma at home continue their educations at schools all across the country. Many of them take our college preparatory program in hopes of attending a four-year college or university, but our general high school program is suitable for students attending junior college or community college. Our staff is happy assist you with the college application process after you enroll and become our student.
