Mission Purpose

The American School, a not-for-profit distance education institution, is dedicated to providing quality secondary instruction at a reasonable cost to those students who are seeking an alternative means of completing their high school education by using the home study method. As one of the world's oldest and largest educational correspondence institutions, we feel a deep sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. We have helped hundreds of thousands of students improve themselves and realize their dreams of advancing their education. Since we opened our doors in 1897 over three million students have benefited from our courses. In the past fifty years alone, nearly a quarter million men and women have graduated from our high school completion program. Our ambitious graduates have been accepted in many colleges and universities from coast to coast. But our achievements tomorrow can only be measured by the success of our graduates today. Therefore, we rededicate ourselves to their future.
