Today’s Anniversary: Peanuts

It's October 2, and on this date in 1950, the Peanuts comic strip debuted.  We're all familiar with the main characters: Charlie Brown, Sally, Lucy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, Marcy, and, of course, Snoopy and Woodstock.  They've been part of the culture for 60 years now, and reruns of the comic strip still appear in papers more than a decade after creator Charles Schultz's death in 2000.  One familiar theme or scene in the strip is Charlie Brown attempting to kick a football, only to have Lucy, the holder, pull the football away at the last moment, sending Charlie Brown flat on his face after whiffing the kick.  Maybe you feel like Charlie Brown when it comes to getting your education.  You think you have everything lined up perfectly, but something or someone always comes along and pulls the football away, so to speak.  The American School can offer you a solution to this problem.  For starters, we accept students of all ages, so if you are in your teen years or have delayed earning your diploma for quite a while, that doesn't matter to us.  We're happy to serve all eligible applicants.  Second, you're in total control of your education, and you work entirely at your own pace.  You won't have teachers or classmates getting in your way or distracting you.  Finally, even if you go through some frustrating times, our instructors and staff will support you better than Lucy supported the football for Charlie Brown.  Today would be a great day to kick off your high school education and enroll in one of our accredited diploma programs.  You'll be glad you did!
