It's June 2, and composer Edward Elgar was born on this date in 1857. His most famous work, Pomp and Circumstance, is often played at high school graduation ceremonies. Sometimes people ask us if we have a formal graduation ceremony since approximately 2500 students earn our accredited high school diploma each year. Because those students are spread out throughout the country and around the world and earn their diplomas at different times of the year, we do not have a formal graduation ceremony. Rather, we invite graduates to come into our building any time of the year to receive their diplomas in person if that is possible. If not, we mail their diplomas shortly after all of their courses have been completed. We are proud to have helped more than three million students earn their high school diplomas, and if you're ready to take the first step toward becoming an American School graduate, we invite you to enroll today.
