About Our Courses
The American High School offers high quality, accredited, Internet-delivered high school courses for students throughout the United States and abroad. Since 2004 American High School has served over 8000 students.
As in face-to-face classes, online classes include a teacher, lessons, homework, class discussions, and tests. The main difference is the activities occur over the Internet at a time that is convenient for students. American High School offers the hallmarks of truly effective traditional education programs, including the highest quality teachers and quality curriculum.
Online High School Courses
American High School customizes our curriculum in order to meet each student’s academic needs. We believe it is more productive for the curriculum to “fit” the student than trying to make the student “fit” a curriculum. To properly design a curriculum for you, it is necessary for us to have an understanding of the academic “level” the student has mastered in the core subjects.
AP / Honors
We currently offer AP / Honors classes for Social Studies, English and Science. More are being added all the time. Students interested in enrolling in our Honors and AP courses should expect the following:

American High School’s summer school program is open to all students who have successfully completed the 8th grade.
