Today’s blog is going to talk about something simple but often confused: our name. We are incorporated as American School of Correspondence but do business as American School because we offer more than middle school correspondence courses and high school correspondence courses. Certainly we are proud to offer correspondence courses since they remain popular and have been part of our history for 126 years, but we are not limited by them and our students aren’t either. We’re happy to offer online middle school courses and online high school courses so that our students can choose which course delivery method is better for them. When students enroll, we do our best to enter their names into our system correctly and to call students by their preferred names on every exam we grade. It’s the courteous thing to do and allows us to add a layer of personal attention in distance education. By the same token, we ask that people call us by the correct name whenever they contact us. We are not American High School or American Schools, but rather we are American School of Correspondence or American School. Those are the only two names by which we should be called. Thank you for your cooperation and for allowing us to serve you.
