Today’s Birthday: Andre Agassi

It's April 29, and American School graduate Andre Agassi turns 50 years old today.  He won eight Grand Slam tennis tournament titles and is one of only a few men to complete the career Grand Slam, meaning that he won the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open at some point during his career.  Andre Agassi is one of several tennis players who have taken high school correspondence courses or online high school courses with us.  Athletes choose us because they can work on our courses whenever and wherever it is convenient for them.  We allow all students to work at their own pace and would be happy to serve you as you work to earn an online or correspondence high school diploma.  The ball is in your court.  Enroll with us today!

Online Exams Available in Two Courses

American School is pleased to announce that online exams are now available in Metalworking and Housing and Interior Design.  Whenever we add to our list of high school correspondence courses, we try to make online exams available as quickly as possible.  Some students like learning with textbooks and study guides but like the convenience of doing and submitting their exams online, and so we do our best to make that happen for them.  In these uncertain times, remember that we have online exams available for most of our paper-based high school courses, and we also have an impressive array of online middle school courses and online high school courses should you choose to work entirely online.  Enroll today if you're a prospective student or contact our student service department if you are a current student and wish to make changes to your curriculum.  Either way, thank you for making us your school of choice.  We are happy to serve you and wish you continued good health.

March 13 Coronavirus Statement

In light of more recent concerns regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), American School is taking the following steps to ensure our students and employees stay healthy.

Since American School is a distance learning school offering online middle school courses, middle school correspondence courses, online high school courses and high school correspondence courses with a staff of fewer than 250 people in a large two-story building, we plan to remain open with regular business hours at this time. 

That said, effective Friday, March 13, only American School employees and other authorized guests will be allowed inside our building, and all large deliveries should go directly to our Shipping Department in the back of the building rather than to our main entrance.  We expect this policy to remain in effect through the close of business on Friday, March 27, though American School reserves the right to amend this policy as we see fit.  No students, parents or friends or family members of American School employees will be allowed inside our building during this time. 

If you are a student or parent and wish to enroll, pick up course materials or other documents, or make a payment in person, please call us at 708-418-2800, email us, or leave information in the white secure lockbox outside our main entrance.  Please include the student’s full name, his or her student number (if student is already enrolled), mailing address, email address and phone number when making your request.  Your request will be processed as quickly as possible, and an American School staff member will reach out to you via phone or email if we have questions about your request.  You may also continue to call or email us and expect a reply within one business day.

American School also is scheduled to attend eight conventions across the country in the next 60 days.  We are monitoring each convention carefully and will continue to put our employees’ health first in making our decision to attend or not attend if particular conventions plan to proceed as scheduled.

Should anything change regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), American School will make additional information available.  In the meantime, we encourage everyone to practice good hygiene practices on a continuous basis.  The health and safety of our employees and students is of the utmost concern to American School management.  We value our employees and appreciate the opportunity to serve our students.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
