Today’s Birthday: George Washington

It's February 22, and George Washington was born on this date in 1732.  He's known as the father of our country, so today's a good day to say a few words about the father of the American School.  R.T. Miller and his friends from Harvard founded the American School in Boston in 1897 because they wanted to give people who couldn't attend a tradtional school a way to receive the education and training they need to succeed in life.  At the time, R.T. Miller probably had no idea that he and his school would move to Chicago a few years later and he'd continue at the helm until 1945.  He definitely had no idea that one day we'd offer an accredited middle school program with online middle school courses, but his vision more than 120 years ago set the stage for the school we are today.  R.T. Miller's school has helped more than three million students earn their high school diplomas and has become one of the best distance education high schools in the world.  Today we stand ready to serve you as well.  Enroll today!
