It’s April 15, and Leonardo da Vinci was born on this date in 1452.  You might know him best as the painter of Mona Lisa, The Last Supper and Vitruvian Man, but Leonardo da Vinci had many other interests besides painting and sculpting.  He was interested in science and engineering and had ideas about flying machines, adding machines and much more.  He lived during a period of time known as the Renaissance, during which knowledge was at the forefront.  Indeed the phrase “Renaissance man” is a perfect description of Leonardo because he learned so much about so many things.  Today the phrase “Renaissance man” or “Renaissance woman” might be used to describe a person who has demonstrated knowledge or talent in a wide variety of ways.  Enrolling in American School’s accredited high school program can give you the opportunity to become a Renaissance man or Renaissance woman yourself.  That’s because we offer hundreds of subjects in a wide variety of topics.  In addition to core subjects like English, math, science and social studies, we offer courses in business, career and technical education, in which you can learn a new trade or gain skills that will benefit you as you move closer to adulthood.  We also offer courses in fine arts, in which you can see how your drawing skills compare to Leonardo’s.  Finally, we offer more than 20 different world language courses so that you can become close to fluent in Italian or any other language you choose.  These courses may be taken while you earn a high school diploma at home or may be taken individually for credit recovery or enrichment.  If you want to become a Renaissance man or Renaissance woman, enroll with American School today!

Homeschooling has taught me a lot of new things.  It has taught me self-discipline and made me take my studies more seriously than before.  I have learned to study properly.  The books and materials were very helpful.  It is a fun experience to do homeschooling.  Many people are amazed to know that I did homeschooling.  This has opened and changed a lot of people’s minds.

American School has more to offer than any public school.  Two of my children, two of my grandchildren, and one niece completed their high school education with American School, and my sister and I are enrolled at the present time.

– Marilyn from Missouri

I learned a lot, and the skills are helping me in my college classes.

The most important thing I learned was how to schedule my time and organize my work.  The study guides helped to show me how much work to do at one time.  I’m glad to be part of American School.

I greatly enjoyed American School.  The instructors’ comments were very helpful.  I enjoyed this method of learning.  I feel I have learned a lot more than I did in public school.  I was able to keep up with school through all the moves I made without going through the hassle of switching school systems.  I enjoyed the honesty of the

instructors and the overall program.   I will recommend American School to anyone interested.
