Today’s Birthday: Neil Diamond

It's January 24, and singer Neil Diamond turns 73 years old today.  When this blog started back in 2006, we occasionally would commemorate famous singers on their birthdays by connecting the titles of some of their biggest hits to things associated with the American School.  We haven't done that in awhile, so we might be a little rusty, but we're going to give it a shot today.  When you enroll and become an American School student, you'll be a "Solitary Man" (or woman)  working toward your accredited high school diploma in a classroom of me, but you will not be alone.  You'll have the support of our instructors and other staff members every step of the way to ensure you don't discouraged and sing a "Song Sung Blue" as you work on your courses.  If you're not a morning person, you can "Thank the Lord for the Night Time" and do your work in the evening.  You work entirely at your own pace and on your own schedule.  There's no dress code to attend the American School so you can be "Forever in Blue Jeans" while you work on your online or paper-based courses.  And speaking of courses, we have more than 70 of them, including interesting electives like Food Study in which you can learn about "Cherry Cherry" and "Crunchy Granola Suite" and other nutritious foods.  Finally, don't forget that, although we are physically located in Illinois, we have students in all 50 states and in more than 65 countries around the world.  Whether you're a "Kentucky Woman" whose name is "Sweet Caroline" or live far away from "America" we'd still love to have you as our student.  After you receive your diploma, you'll be able to say "I Am, I Said" to those who ask you if you're a high school graduate!
