Today’s Anniversary: The First United States Budget

It's September 19, and on this date way back in 1778, the Continental Congress passed the first budget of the United States.  We can only hope it was a balanced budget and didn't contribute to today's enormous national debt.  At the American School, we know that families have a variety of budgets.  That's one reason why we try to keep our tuition as reasonable as possible.  A 4-year, 18-unit accredited diploma program costs just $1599 and includes all study materials, grading of exams, and access to the online student center.  Our Cost page outlines the prices for fewer years and credits and also discusses the average price of individual courses through our Independent Study program.  In addition, we offer a monthly payment plan for students in either of our diploma programs.  This monthly payment plan ensures that getting your high school education will not be too taxing on your family's finances.  Visit our Cost page and the rest of our site, and you'll discover that earning your accredited high school diploma from the American School makes all the "cents" in the world!
