Today’s Anniversary: Helena, Montana

It's October 30, and the city of Helena, Montana was founded on this date in 1864.  That year was part of the Montana Gold Rush, and a group of settlers came across an area called Last Chance Gulch which later became Helena.  Montana is home to author Christopher Paolini, who took our high school correspondence courses while writing his Eragon series.  American School was not a last chance for Christopher, but we've been used as a last chance by others who failed to earn a high school diploma elsewhere.  Our accredited high school program offers a correspondence high school diploma program and an online high school diploma program, and we give credit for courses completed at other accredited schools.  Whether you live in a place once called Last Chance Gulch or in 49 other states or more than 65 countries around the world, don't give up on your dream of becoming a high school graduate.  Enroll with American School today!
