American School offers accredited high school courses and diploma programs at a cost students and parents can afford. In its 118-year history, American School has educated more than three million students from across the country and around the world. Many of them, such as bestselling author Christopher Paolini and actress Jessica Alba, have gone on to become famous, but all of our students enjoy the benefits of what we call our Four C's—curriculum, caring student service, credibility and cost.
After you are accepted at American School, you can earn your accredited diploma faster than you ever thought possible—up to twice as fast as classroom high schools—by choosing either of two distinct diploma programs, both of which consist of 18 units of credit from our innovative curriculum.
If you are planning on attending college, consider our College Preparatory Program. Students complete 15 required courses and may consider taking courses in fine arts or world languages among their 3 electives. More information on the College Preparatory program, including a list of required courses, can be found at www.americanschool.org /collegeprep.
If you are planning on going into the workforce immediately after graduation, consider our General High School Program. Students complete 13 required courses and may consider taking business, career and technical education courses among their 5 electives. More information on the General High School program, including a list of required courses, can be found at www.americanschool.org/generalhighschool.
In total, American School offers more than 80 courses, many of which are available in entirely paper-based and entirely online formats. The American School also offers online exams in select paper-based courses. Offering the same top-quality courses in multiple formats allows students to learn in the way that is most comfortable to them. More information about American School's online learning offerings may be found at www.americanschool.org/online-learning.
Students work entirely at their own pace, but they are never alone. American School tries to make distance learning as personal as possible. For example, our instructors write personalized, handwritten comments when they grade exams in paper-based courses, and our staff is available during normal business hours to answer telephone and e-mail inquiries. The dedication of our staff is one reason why the American School is accredited by the Middle States Association/Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS), Accreditation International (Ai) and the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA) and recognized by the State of Illinois as a non-public high school.
American School's status as a non-profit school allows us to keep costs to an absolute minimum. A full 18-unit diploma program, including all study materials and grading of exams, costs just $2100, and flexible monthly payment plans are available. Prices for students residing in a foreign country are slightly higher. In addition, American School offers free evaluations of transcripts from United States high schools and offers pro-rated prices if you need fewer than 18 units of credit to earn your high school diploma.
If you desire to take American School courses to enrich an existing homeschool program, you can do that, too. The cost of individual courses usually runs between $150 and $300. We are also proud to offer ACT and SAT prep courses which do not count toward our diploma requirements but can be a valuable resource for students as they prepare for college entrance exams. More information about our ACT and SAT prep courses may be found at www.americanschool.org/actsatprep.
