American School offers accredited high school courses and diploma programs at a cost students and parents can afford. For most of its 119-year history, American School offered only traditional paper-based courses, but now American School is proud to offer online diploma programs, online courses, and online exams in paper-based courses, ensuring that students can learn in the way that is most comfortable to them.
Over the years, 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 a four-year college or university, consider our College Preparatory Program. Students in the paper-based College Preparatory Program complete 15 required courses and may consider taking courses in fine arts or world languages among their 3 electives. Students in the online College Preparatory Program complete 13 required courses and have room for 5 electives. More information on the College Preparatory program, including a list of required courses, can be found at
If you are planning on going into the workforce or attending community college immediately after graduation, consider our General High School Program. Students complete in the paper-based General High School program complete 13 required courses and may consider taking business, career and technical education courses among their 5 electives. Students in the online General High School Program complete 12 required courses and have room for 6 electives. More information on the General High School program, including a list of required courses, can be found at
In total, American School offers more than 100 courses, many of which are available in both paper-based and online formats. A full list of courses is available at Included in those courses are online world language courses through Rosetta Stone. We are proud to be affiliated with Rosetta Stone, and more information about those courses and that affiliation may be found at More information about all of our online learning offerings may be found at
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 paper-based diploma program, including all study materials and grading of exams, costs just $2250, and flexible monthly payment plans are available. Prices for students residing in a foreign country are slightly higher. A full 18-unit online diploma program costs $3600 no matter where you live. In addition, American School offers free evaluations of transcripts from high schools in the United States 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.
