Today’s Birthday: Coach K

It's February 13, and Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski turns 72 years old today.  Better known as Coach K, he has led Duke to five national championships and served as head coach of the United States Olympic teams that won gold medals in 2008, 2012 and 2016.  Basketball aside, Duke is consistently ranked among the nation's top universities, and it's not uncommon for American School graduates to attend high-quality universities all across the country.  Sometimes people think that students who earn a high school diploma at home have no chance at being accepted to elite schools.  That is simply not true.  Each college has its own admissions criteria.  Often schools will look at a student's academic record, extracurricular activities, test scores and more while deciding whether or not to accept the student.  Choosing the right college is not a slam dunk for most students, but our print or online college preparatory program offers you the accredited high school courses you need to be successful at whatever school interests you. Our guidance department is here to assist you if you have any questions about the college admissions process, and we're proud to offer scholarships to some of our graduates who wish to further their educations at accredited schools.  We are here to help you become successful both in high school and beyond, so tip off your American School career by enrolling with us today!
