Today’s Anniversary: Michael Phelps

It's August 17, and on this date in 2008, swimmer Michael Phelps became the first athlete to win 8 gold medals in one Olympics.  This great accomplishment got us thinking about American School students who've earned medals in the Olympics.  Tennis star Andre Agassi won a gold medal at the 1996 Olympics.  Swimmer Katie Hoff competed in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics and earned a silver medal and two bronze medals.  Other American School students and graduates have competed in the Olympics too.  Even though you may not have outstanding athletic ability, American School is here to help you go for the gold in whatever field you wish to pursue.  Our online high school courses and high school correspondence courses have made us one of the best distance education high schools in the world.  We're proud to offer print and online middle school courses to students in grades 6-8.  Enroll now.  You'll feel like a winner after you earn a high school diploma at home!
