It’s May 11, and Minnesota became a state on this date in 1858. Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but you might call American School the School of 3,000,000 Students. That’s because we have served more than three million students since our founding in 1897. In the early days, our students took trade courses and high school correspondence courses. Today our students take online middle school courses, middle school correspondence courses and online high school courses in addition to our traditional high school correspondence courses. We like giving students the option to take accredited middle school courses and accredited high school courses in the course delivery method that is better for them, and they seem to like it too. If you live in Minnesota, another state or another country, we would be happy to serve you. Join more than three million people and enroll with American School today!
