American High School is a private online school for Grades 6-12. Our school has been in existence since 2004 and over 25,000 students, across the U.S. and internationally, have enrolled in our online courses. Our online curriculum has been time-tested and meets the academic needs of many types of students, including but not limited to accelerated, remedial, and gifted learners. The majority of students that enroll plan to attend college or enter the workforce upon graduation. We offer a college preparatory curriculum offering General, Honors, and AP courses. As of Spring of 2013, our graduation rate was 93% for those enrolled in 12th grade. An exceptional feat for our students, as the curriculum is rigorous and demanding, but the students aspired for greatness.
All of the teachers at American High School are certified and/or highly certified in their subject matter discipline. The teacher/student ratio is approximately 75:1. However, because students are not all in the virtual classroom at the same time every day, and are working at their own pace and time, the ratio feels more like 1:1. American teachers are available 10 hours a day to support the students via Skype, email, online video chat, discussion boards, and phone. Students also work with the teachers in a multitude of extracurricular virtual programs that engage students and look good on their resumes.
Here are just a few reasons that teens and their families choose American High School for Grades 6-12.
