Today’s Anniversary: George Washington’s Farewell Address

It's September 19, and George Washington's Farewell Address was published on this date in 1796.  These days, the speech would've been on every TV station and all over the internet, but back then it was published in the American Daily Advertiser, one of the first newspapers in the United States.  Although it wasn't a speech, it was one of the most important presidential addresses or documents in history.  In any given year, about 2000 people say farewell to American School and leave with a print or online high school diploma.  Others may take just one course with us through our independent study high school program.  Even after students complete their studies, we never say farewell to them.  We keep their records on file in case they ever need them in the future.  It's one of the many ways we make distance education as personal as possible.  Enroll today and make us your distance education high school or middle school!
