Today’s Birthday: Coach K

It's February 13, and Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski turns 70 years old today.  At as a college coach, Coach K has won 5 national championships at Duke and more than 1000 games overall.  He also coached the United States' men's basketball team from 2005-2016 and was 60-1 in international competitions, including leading the USA to Olympic gold medals in 2008, 2012 and 2016.  Those championships and gold medals were won with hard work and help from many people, and the same will be true for you as you strive to earn your paper-based or online high school diploma from American School.  To get a high school diploma adults or children have to complete 18 units of credit, so it's unrealistic to think you can enroll with us and earn a high school diploma at home overnight.  You'll be able to work at your own pace and work independently if you so choose, but you'll get help from our qualified instructors and courteous staff whenever you need us.  We want to help you achieve all of your goals whether they involve sports or not, and the best way to do that is for you to enroll today.  


Today’s Anniversary: The State of Iowa

It's December 28, and Iowa became a state on this date in 1846.  It's not uncommon for us to meet some of our neighbors to the west at the conventions we attend each year.  The 2017 convention slate consists of return trips to many conventions and initial appearances at other events.  We'll be going to every corner of the continental United States promoting our accredited high school courses and online middle school courses.  We're happy to offer a high school diploma adults and children may complete, and we're also proud to offer individual courses for credit recovery or enrichment purposes.  Keep checking this blog for our first convention stops of 2017, and be sure to stop by our booth if we're going to a city near you.  We'd be happy to meet you!


Today’s Anniversary: The Mary Tyler Moore Show

It's September 19, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show premiered on television on this date in 1970.  We realize this show is probably before your time, but it can be seen in reruns to this very day.  What's important for this blog is the last line of The Mary Tyler Moore Show's theme song, which is "You might just make it after all.".  Many times people come to us to earn a high school diploma at home because things haven't worked out for them at their current or past school.  They feel hopeless because without a high school diploma adults can have difficult lives.  That's where we come in.  We offer a high school diploma online for adults and children to complement our correspondence high school diploma for adults and children.  Students receive academic and financial credit for work completed at accredited schools they previously attended, and it is possible that, even if you've been out of school for many years, you can earn your diploma by completing as little as 4.5 units of credit and paying as little as $900.  You'll do more than "might just make it after all" when you become our student.  You WILL just make it after all.  Enroll today!

Today’s Special Occasion: Patriots’ Day

It's the third Monday in April, and our friends in New England are celebrating Patriots' Day.  The most famous Patriots' Day event is the Boston Marathon, and while we continue to remember the events of the 2013 Boston Marathon, we'd like to share with you some ways in which earning a high school diploma online for adults or teens or earning a correspondence high school diploma for adults or teens is like running a marathon.  You may think that running 26.2 miles or earning 18 units of credit to complete your high school diploma program is a daunting task.  In some ways you're correct, but runners and our students go at a pace that is entirely their own.  Runners have a support system of family and friends and people who will give them water along the race route.  As our student, you'll have the support of our instructors and student service staff every step of the way.  Finally, marathon runners may get a medal or trophy, but you'll get something even more valuable: a high school diploma adults or teens can use to propel themselves to a better life.  Take the first step and enroll today.  

Today’s Anniversary: The Elevator

It's March 23, and on this date in 1857, the first passenger elevator was installed in New York City.  If you're on the ground floor when it comes to your high school education, or if you're somewhere in the middle and want to go all the way to the top, American School can help you earn a high school diploma at home.  We offer accredited online high school courses and high school correspondence courses that people may take as part of our accredited high school program.  We offer a General High School Program for people who plan to join the workforce or attend a community college after graduation, and we offer a College Preparatory Program for people who plan to attend a four-year college after graduation.  Students may come into our program without previous high school credit and take all 18 units with us, or they may send us an official transcript from their previous school(s) and have credits transfer to us.  The latter option is popular among older students.  To earn a high school diploma adults may need to take as little as 4 1/2 units of credit at a cost of just $900, and monthly payment plans are available.  Let us take you where you want to go with your education, all the way to the top floor with your diploma in hand.  Enroll today!
