It’s January 11, and 50 years ago today Major League Baseball adopted the designated hitter position. As its name implies, the designated hitter is a player who has been designated to hit in place of another player, usually the pitcher. In a similar way, our online high school courses or paper-based high school courses can take the place of other courses. If you are a student at a traditional school who needs a course for credit recovery or enrichment, we encourage you to work with your school counselor and find the course you need. You can enroll anytime, and you and your counselor will have access to your records through the online student center and online counselor office. Our independent study program would be happy to serve you, and we are confident you’ll hit one out of the park as an American School student!
