American School’s Independent Study Program is designed for students who attend public or private high schools. Individual subjects may be taken through the Independent Study Program for credit recovery purposes, to avoid scheduling conflicts, to challenge the accelerated student, to assist the home-bound student, or to take the place of summer school. Students who enroll in individual subjects through the Independent Study Program must have the approval of their counselor or other school official prior to enrolling.
Tuition includes all study materials, grading, access to the Online Student Center, where students can view academic records, sign up for e-mail notification of grades, download help sheets and access homework Web sites. Counselors and school officials will have access to the Online Counselor Office where they can view academic records for each of their students, sign up for weekly student progress report e-mails, and download optional final exams for each of their students.
Once a course is completed and the student’s account has a zero balance, American School will send a transcript to the student’s school. This keeps the student on track to earn a high school diploma and participate in his or her high school graduation ceremony.
