It’s May 23, and South Carolina became a state on this date in 1788. We have attended conventions in the Palmetto State in the past and may do so again in the future. Each year we try to get to as many conventions as possible while taking several things into consideration, including availability of our booth representatives, how easy it is to get to the convention site, what the convention dates and hours are, how many people will attend the convention and more. We do our best to criss-cross the country promoting our accredited middle school courses and accredited high school courses, but it is impossible for us to attend every convention out there. Please know that we do the best we can to meet people in person, and when that isn’t possible, we often place ads in convention programs or send information to be stuffed in gift bags which are given to convention attendees. We look forward to seeing you at a convention soon and showing you how you or someone you know can earn a high school diploma at home from American School. Keep checking this blog to see where we are headed next.
