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).

Our School Experience

At AHS, we like to think that we share a universal goal with parents. This goal is to guarantee that students become adults that are:

  • Productive
  • Successful
  • Confident

Our full-time, individual courses and summer programs that are offered allow our students to build on their unique interests and strengths. We offer our students a setting that is connected to a large community of learners globally in a safe environment.

Our unique approach includes the following driving forces:

Curriculum that is Outstanding

At American High School, our enrollees will receive an online education that is both amazing and affordable. Our courses exceed both state and national standards and we have created a curriculum that engages students in creative, new ways while integrating the best possible-

  • Texts
  • Resources
  • Materials

With our College Acceleration Program, it allows students to earn college credits or even a degree at a much cheaper cost than college tuition.

Extraordinary Teachers

Our brilliant teachers are the basis of the International American High School experience. They are-

  • Passionate
  • Talented
  • Certified

In addition to those traits, our teachers are trained especially to stand out in teaching online. We acquire teachers from all across the United States. This is largely due to their excitement towards student learning and our teachers all firmly believe that tailored one-on-one instruction really works and our virtual school offers just that.

Individual Attention for Each Student

We believe that every one of our students has their own unique abilities and that they learn in their own way. For this reason, students tend to do better when they receive attention that is individualized in a learning environment that is nurturing. The foundation of American High School is based around these principles and we offer a Personalized Performance Approach with all our courses. With this successful method, our teachers focus on students-

  • Learning style
  • Skills
  • Interests

Our teachers use this method; each student will be given the best chance to succeed in their studies. This method is also beneficial since our students will be able to receive extra help in courses that they display weakness in and they can accelerate in courses that they excel at.

Learning that is Parent-Supported

When parents become active in their children’s education, the child will prosper. As a parent or guardian, you are a Learning Coach and will be actively involved with your student’s education daily. With this approach, you will be able to see the progress that your child makes each and every day while working with our dedicated staff to help keep your child on the path to success. Our parents say that their ability to be involved with their students learning is the most satisfying aspects of a school program that is online.

Technology that is Easy-to-Use

American High School’s system, ActiveLearning ECO System, is user-friendly and lets our students access our courses and enjoy their learning experience anywhere and everywhere that they have an Internet connection. Our parents love how easy this system is to view grades and schedule courses!

Community, Socialization, and Friendships

One of the biggest concerns to child who enroll in an online school is the lack of socialization. However, by learning online it doesn’t mean that you have to learn alone. Our students meet frequently in online Audio / Video Collaboration session when enrolled in our virtual school. During these sessions, your child will have the chance to compare experiences, share ideas, and enjoy learning and growing together.
