American School will be closed Monday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day. We will reopen with regular business hours on Tuesday, July 5. As we think about Independence Day, we also appreciate the fact that we allow students independence in their middle school courses and high school courses. That independence extends beyond students in our independent study program who take one or more courses on an individual basis to earn a diploma from another school. Rather, our independence allows students to work at their own pace, when and where it is convenient for them, as they work to complete grades 6-12 and earn a high school diploma at home. We are grateful for our students and their families and wish all of you a happy and safe holiday weekend.
