The seal of the American School
Lansing, IL (PRWEB) April 18, 2014
The American School is pleased to announce the addition of eight new Business, Career and Technical Education courses to its ever-expanding list of online learning offerings. Students can now take Accounting 1, Business Communication, Introduction to Culinary Arts, Fashion and Interior Design, Life Management Skills, Read World Parenting, Introduction to Social Media and Thinking and Learning Strategies while they work toward their accredited high school diploma. Full descriptions of each course are available on http://www.americanschool.org/courses.
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 homeschool 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 Ai (Accreditation International) and NCPSA (the National Council for Private School Accreditation) and is recognized by the State of Illinois as a non-public high school.
