The American School is pleased to be an exhibitor at the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Conference to be held June 29 to July 1 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel near Orlando.
Those attending the convention are invited to visit the American School in booth 528 on Sunday, June 29, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., on Monday, June 30, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and on Tuesday, July 1, from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. to 2 p.m. to learn more about the American School and the educational services it provides to students and schools. First Lady Michelle Obama will speak to all convention attendees on Tuesday, July 1, from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., creating split hours for the exhibit hall on that day.
The American School has been a leader in distance education since 1897 and has helped more than three million students across the country and around the world earn their accredited high school diplomas. Students wishing to earn the American School’s diploma choose either General High School Program or College Preparatory Program, both of which contain 18 units of credit. A full, four-year diploma program costs $2100 and includes paper-based and/or online courses, all study materials and access to the password-protected Online Student Center, where students and parents can view grades, access help sheets and homework web sites and contact American School instructors and staff members.
The American School also offers individual courses to students with an existing home school curriculum and to students who attend brick and mortar high schools. The latter group takes individual courses through the Independent Study Program, which thousands of schools use each year to help their students graduate on time. Individual courses typically cost between $150 and $300 and students who take individual courses receive the same Online Student Center benefits as those students who are working toward their American School diploma.
The American School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS), Accreditation International (Ai) and the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA) and is recognized by the State of Illinois as a non-public high school.
