Our History

American High School was founded in 1999 by educators and innovators who recognized the power of online learning to transform K–12 education. To-date, American High School has launched several successful blended learning centers across the world, bringing quality online education directly to the doors of million of students.

The AHS Difference

We offer a better alternative to regular high school. The program accommodates all types of students. We tailor courses to be effective and user friendly in an online environment. High school and middle school classes are adapted to work in an online setting. We provide an excellent, well-rounded, proven curriculum. You receive the instruction you need to meet your educational goals. AHS is fully accredited by leading agencies such as AdvancEd and SACS. AdvancED is the unified organization of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI).

The School Experience

We share a common goal with parents: to ensure that students become productive, successful, and confident adults. Through our full-time, individual course, and summer school programs, American High School’s virtual school helps online students build on their unique strengths and interests in a setting that is both safe and connected to a larger community of global learners.

Below are a few of the driving forces behind this unique approach:

Outstanding Curriculum

At American High School, students receive a great online education at an affordable price. Our school classes meet and exceed all national and state standards while also integrating the best texts, materials, and resources available to create a curriculum that keeps students engaged in new and creative ways. And our exclusive College Acceleration Program enables students to earn college degree or credits and reduce college tuition costs.

Exceptional Teachers

The teachers are the foundation of the International American High School experience. They are talented, passionate, certified, and specially trained to excel in online teaching. Teachers from all across the United States are drawn to our virtual school because they care about kids and believe that personalized one-on-one instruction really works.

Individual Attention

Each and every student has unique abilities, and all students perform better when they receive individual attention in a nurturing learning environment. These guiding principles are the foundation of American High School’s Personalized Performance Learning approach. Using this method, teachers get to know the learning style, skills, and interests of each online student so they can give every student the best opportunity to excel. This approach also allows students to accelerate learning in areas of strength or receive extra attention in areas of weakness.

Parent-Supported Learning

When parents take an active role in education, students prosper. As Learning Coaches, parents can be closely involved in their children’s daily education. They’re able to see real progress every day and work with dedicated teachers to keep their students on track. Parents say this involvement is one of the most gratifying aspects of the online school program.

Easy-to-Use Technology

American High School’s user-friendly system, ActiveLearning ECO System, lets online school students access a welcoming and collaborative learning experience anywhere they have an Internet connection. Parents love how easy it is to schedule lessons and access grades, too!

Socialization, Community, and Friendships

Learning online doesn’t mean learning alone. Even in a virtual setting, students meet regularly in online Audio / Video Collaboration sessions and have opportunities to share ideas, compare experiences, and have fun learning together.
