Today’s Birthday: Shannon Lucid

It's January 14, and scientist and astronaut Shannon Lucid is celebrating a birthday today.  She is notable for many reasons, not the least of which is that she once held the American record for the longest period of time living in outer space.  We wanted to feature her today because she is a great example of a woman having a career in science.  Enrolling in our accredited middle school program will give you a solid foundation for high school.  When you're ready to begin ninth grade, our accredited high school courses online and in print can help you reach for the stars and get there.  Along the way, our entire staff will serve as "mission control" and assist you in any way we can while you work toward your correspondence or online high school diploma.  We encourage everyone to aim high and are happy to support you as you strive for your educational and career goals!
