American School of Correspondence
The American School of Correspondence is an American distance education high school in Lansing, Illinois. It was founded in 1897. It is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA-CESS) and the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA).
The American School is a non-public secondary school and offers its own diploma. It is not a GED program. High school students can complete four years' worth of credits at their own pace, often taking less time than in a traditional high school. All exams in the more than 70 courses offered are hand graded by a qualified staff of full-time and part-time instructors. Additionally, the school works with thousands of public, private, and parochial schools throughout the United States to offer distance learning courses to students who have fallen behind in credits, or are working at an accelerated rate. The credits for these correspondence courses are then transferred to the student's high school.
