This page contains information about American School’s online learning offerings.  Students can access their online courses or online exams by first accessing the Online Student Center, but this page contains ways for students to access their online courses or online exams without accessing the Online Student Center as well.  If you are a current student and have technical questions after reviewing the information below, please email us for assistance.



In August 2019, American School began a partnership with Edmentum to offer online middle school courses for students in grades 6-8 and online high school courses for students in grades 9-12.  The information below instructs students how to access their Edmentum courses without going through our Online Student Center.

Accessing Edmentum Courses:

To access your Edmentum account without going through our Student Center, please use the following information to do so:

Edmentum Login Page:

Account Login: ASOC

User Name (Plato Name): First name + First letter of your last name + American School Student Number (for example:  JohnD1234567)

Password: The same password you use for your Student Center account

American School also offers 22 World Language courses through Rosetta Stone.  Click the Rosetta Stone link for a list of all our Rosetta Stone course offerings.  The information below instructs students how to access their Rosetta Stone courses without going through our Online Student Center.

Accessing Rosetta Stone Courses:

Rosetta Stone Login Page:

Username: American School Student Number + dash + 3-letter language code (for example, 1234567-GER)

Password: The same password you use for your Student Center account



Finally, American School offers online exams for many paper-based courses.  If you wish to take online exams for some or all of your paper-based courses, email us. Include your full name, student number, and the names of the course(s) in which you would like to take online exams. Your request will be processed quickly and you will receive more information from us shortly thereafter.  Whether you take your exams online or send in the exams printed in your study guide, you will be tested on the same material from your textbook and study guide. However, the online exams will look somewhat different than those in your study guide.  Please note that once you have begun to submit your exams online in a course, you may not change back to submitting paper exams in that course.  Click here to view a sample of our online exams for paper-based courses.  Enter guestpass for the user name and guest1 for the password.  Do not click on the “Login as a Guest” button. That will not provide access to the guest courses.  Access to online exams in paper-based courses for current students is available by going to the Online Student Center.

Thank you for your interest in American School and our many online learning opportunities!


Homeschooling has taught me a lot of new things.  It has taught me self-discipline and made me take my studies more seriously than before.  I have learned to study properly.  The books and materials were very helpful.  It is a fun experience to do homeschooling.  Many people are amazed to know that I did homeschooling.  This has opened and changed a lot of people’s minds.

American School has more to offer than any public school.  Two of my children, two of my grandchildren, and one niece completed their high school education with American School, and my sister and I are enrolled at the present time.

– Marilyn from Missouri

I learned a lot, and the skills are helping me in my college classes.

The most important thing I learned was how to schedule my time and organize my work.  The study guides helped to show me how much work to do at one time.  I’m glad to be part of American School.

– Peter from Illinois

I have found the methods, instruction, textbooks, study guides and service satisfactory because they are all up-to-date and made ready for me to learn.  I am greatly thankful for this service because now I can graduate early with all my credits in.  Thank you very much, American School!

– Ada from Michigan

American School was an easy yet efficient way to earn the extra credit I needed to graduate.

– Elizabeth from Illinois

I greatly enjoyed American School.  The instructors’ comments were very helpful.  I enjoyed this method of learning.  I feel I have learned a lot more than I did in public school.  I was able to keep up with school through all the moves I made without going through the hassle of switching school systems.  I enjoyed the honesty of the

instructors and the overall program.   I will recommend American School to anyone interested.

As a not-for-profit institution, American School puts students’ educations first. Our tuition is affordable—much lower than many other distance education and online high schools—and all textbooks and study materials are included at no additional cost.  Monthly payment plans are available for students in full years of American School’s middle school or high school program.

Caring Student Service

When students are accepted at American School, they not only receive interesting curriculum at a reasonable cost from a pioneer in distance education; they also receive outstanding, caring student service.  Students may enroll anytime and work at their own pace.  Help is available from American School staff during business hours and around the clock in American School’s Online Student Center.


Founded in 1897, American School later became the first correspondence school to become regionally accredited. Today we are accredited by three reputable accrediting bodies and recognized by the Illinois State Board of Education as a non-public high school.  American School’s diploma is accepted by colleges and universities, and thousands of high schools use our courses for credit recovery.
