American School Annual Inventory Process Underway

Today's blog is about American School's annual inventory process.  Each year we do an inventory of materials in our warehouse.  Specifically we look at textbooks and study guides used by students in our middle school and high school correspondence courses.  The whole inventory process takes about a week, and shipments for your middle school or high school correspondence class may be delayed during this time.  We appreciate your patience, and you should have your course materials shortly.  Inventory is important to the overall success of American School.  We want to make sure we have enough materials on hand and can ship you the course materials you need without having you endure a long wait for them.  Thank you for your patience and understanding and for making us your distance education high school or middle school.

 

Today’s Anniversary: Virginia

It's June 25, and Virginia became a state on this date in 1788.  Over the years we've attended many conventions in Virginia, but we won't be attending any conventions there this year.  When we cannot attend a convention in person, we send bagstuffing items if we can.  Nothing can replace the in-person interaction of meeting people who are looking for a distance education high school or middle school, but bagstuffing items can still help us reach families who are interested in our print or online high school courses for students in grades 9-12 or print or online middle school courses for students in grades 6-8.  The next time you attend a convention and you can grab a giveaway bag, please do.  You just might see an American School information card inside!

2020 Convention #4 : MPE Conference (Cancelled)

This weekend the MPE Conference was scheduled take place at the KCI Expo Center in Kansas City, Missouri, but the event has been cancelled.  Had we been able to attend, we would have had information about our accredited high school program and accredited middle school program and brought along some of our famous free promotional items.  We've attended the MPE Conference for several years now and have always been impressed by how many states are represented there.  Of course guests will be from Kansas and Missouri, but sometimes residents of North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Oklahoma and Colorado attend the conference too.  We plan to see them when we attend the MPE Conference in 2021.  Wherever you're from, we'd love for you to make us your distance education high school or middle school.  Enroll today!

Emails to Start Your Online Courses

Today's blog is about emails to start your online courses.  When you enroll in online middle school courses or online high school courses with us, you should receive a welcome email which includes information on how you can access your courses.  If you do not receive these emails shortly after you enroll, please let us know.  Sometimes emails get sent to the wrong address by accident, or they may wind up in your spam folder by accident.  We do not want you to become frustrated or fall behind because of this and will do everything we can to get you started right away.  Thank you for making us your distance education high school and middle school.  We are happy to have you as our student!

Today’s Anniversaries: Kentucky and Tennessee

It's June 1, and we're celebrating two statehood anniversaries today.  Kentucky became a state on this day in 1792, and Tennessee became a state on this day in 1796.  We are proud to have students in Kentucky and Tennessee and in all 50 states and more than 65 countries around the world.  Many students enroll with us because of our outstanding high school diploma program.  It consists of 20 units of credit whether you prefer the general high school program or college preparatory program.  Both programs allow students to take online high school courses or high school correspondence courses, and both have room for electives, so you can personalize your program with courses in fields that matter to you.  We also offer individual courses in grades 6-12 and full-year middle school programs if you wish to make us your distance education high school or middle school.  Whether you live in Kentucky or Tennessee or in one of the 48 other states or in a country halfway around the world, enroll today.  We would be happy to have you as our student!

2020 Convention #13: THSC Called to Teach Convention The Woodlands (Cancelled)

This week American School was scheduled to attend the Texas Homeschool Coalition Called to Teach Convention in The Woodlands, but that convention has been cancelled.  We always enjoy attending this convention and were excited to share information about our accredited middle school program and accredited high school program with those who were traveling to the Houston area for this event.  We also would have had information about taking our courses on an individual basis to enrich an existing homeschool program, and we certainly would have had plenty of our promotional items to distribute as well.  We look forward to reetuning to The Woodlands in 2021, but in the meantime, we'd be happy to be your distance education high school or middle school.  Enroll today!

2020 Convention #11: FWAHS Resource Expo (Cancelled)

This weekend American School was scheduled to visit Fort Wayne for the Fort Wayne Area Home Schools' Resource Expo on Saturday, May 16, but the event was cancelled.  The convention was scheduled to be held at the Plassman Athletic Center at Turnstone for the first time, but now we hope to see many of you there in 2021.  Because Fort Wayne is in northeastern Indiana, it's not uncommon for people from Michigan or Ohio to attend the show, and we always enjoy meeting people who stop by our booth to learn about our accredited middle school program and accredited high school program.  Just last year a family who regularly follows us on Facebook stopped by our table, and we were happy to meet them in person.  Come join us next year in Fort Wayne.  We look forward to meeting you and serving you after you enroll and make us your distance education high school or middle school.  

2020 Convention #10: Homeschool Oklahoma Celebration (Cancelled)

If you read one of this week's previous blogs, you know that we planned to attend two conventions this week.  The second was the Homeschool Oklahoma Celebration.  Previously this event was in downtown Oklahoma City, but this year it was scheduled to be held at the Cole Community Center on the north side of Oklahoma City before it was cancelled.  Had we attended, we would have had information about our accredited high school program and accredited middle school program, both of which offer a full package of courses for each year of grades 6-12.  We also would have brought information about our enrichment program which allows students to take individual subjects to enhance an existing homeschool program.  The sooner we can get back to the Sooner State the better, so we plan to attend this show in 2021 if we can.  In the meantime, we look forward to you choosing us as your distance education high school or middle school!

2020 Convention #9: THSC Called to Teach Convention Allen (Cancelled)

This week American School would have attended two conventions.  The first was the Texas Homeschool Coalition Called to Teach Convention in Allen, but that convention has been cancelled.  This convention was scheduled to be in a new location this year, and so we were excited to share information about our accredited middle school program and accredited high school program with those who would have traveled to the Metroplex for this event.  We also would have had information about taking our courses on an individual basis to enrich an existing homeschool program, and we certainly would have had plenty of our promotional items to distribute as well.  We look forward to making our first visit to Allen in 2021, but we'd be happy to be your distance education high school or middle school right now too.  Enroll today!

American School Celebrates Administrative Professionals Day

Wednesday was Administrative Professionals Day, and we were happy to recognize our administrative professionals throughout the building.  As a leading distance education high school and middle school, you might guess that we have several administrative professionals, and you'd be correct.  We are grateful for them.  Besides administrative professionals, each American School employee plays a part in helping students earn a high school diploma at home, complete an accredited middle school program, or take courses through our independent study high school program.  Some grade, some ship course materials, some handle accounting issues, some provide customer service, and others handle administrative tasks.  All of us want to see all of our students succeed, and we want to see you succeed too.  Enroll now!
